Pax Conversational Salon

  • Mississippi Market (map)

Tuesday night, November 20 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at Mississippi Market at 1500 West 7th Street in St. Paul.

On Indigenous People’s Day this year Annette Klapstein, 66, a retired attorney and Emily Johnston, 52, poet and office worker, walked into a northern Minnesota courtroom to plead a “necessity defense” for shutting down Canadian tar sands oil piped across our state.    

Two Twin Cities climate activists, Susu Jeffrey and Jean Ross, attended the trial and will report back to the community at the Pax-Conversational Salon on Tuesday, Nov. 20.  This was the first moral (“Necessity Defense”)  heard in  a U.S. court of law on climate civil disobedience .  

Free, but donations welcome. Call 651-227-3228 for information.
