Climate Crisis Solutions: Tools for Transition September 25-27, 2015 Yellow Springs, Ohio

Saturday, September 26th 3:50-5:00 Presentations and Workshops, Antioch Campus Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund and Fracking the Commons with Tish O’Dell and John Morgan “Building sustainable communities by assisting people to assert their right to local self-government and the rights of nature.” We believe that we are in the midst of an escalating ecological crisis, and that the crisis is the result of decisions made by a relatively few people who run corporations and government. We believe that sustainability will never be achieved by leaving those decisions in the hands of a few – both because of their belief in limitless economic production and because their decisions are made at a distance from the communities experiencing the impact of those decisions. Therefore, we believe that to attain sustainability, a right to local self-government must be asserted that places decisions affecting communities in the hands of those closest to the impacts. That right to local self-government must enable communities to reject unsustainable economic and environmental policies set by state and federal governments, and must enable communities to construct legal frameworks for charting a future towards sustainable energy production, sustainable land development, and sustainable water use, among others. In doing so, communities must challenge and overturn legal doctrines that have been concocted to eliminate their right to self-government, including the doctrines of corporate constitutional rights, preemption, and limitations on local legislative authority. Inseparable from the right to local self government – and its sole limitation – are the rights of human and natural communities; they are the implicit and enumerated premises on which local self government must be built.

“As a people of ‘we the people’ fame we have become either ahistorical, amazingly obedient, exceedingly stupid, or all three. We can stay that way if we choose-either denying the corporate state or resigning ourselves to it-with the understanding that every day we fail to challenge the corporate state is another day that the planet falls down around us.” – Thomas Linzey
