What role can civil disobedience play in the stuggle for social change? Peter explores this question with two guests: first, environmental organizer Tim DeChristopher recounts his experience delaying a federal oil and gas lease auction, and how the legal doctrine of "necessity" can be used in environmental campaigns. 

Then Sunsara Taylor discusses the right-wing effort to supress womens' option of abortion, and the countercampaign to preserve reproductive choice.

Tim DeChristopher founded two climate-action organizations. He spent 21 months in prison for submitting a false bid at a federal oil and gas auction in Utah in 2008. www.timdechristopher.org

Sunsara Taylor is with StopPatriarchy.org, and also is a member of the Revolutionary Communist Party
