Abby Brockway and Patrick Mazza, Oil Train Blockaders - "At some point it's an insane world."

Patrick and Abby, along with three others, blocked passage of an oil train in Everett for eight hours before being arrested. At trial they claimed "necessity" as a defense - hoping that the jury would acquit. Patrick has spent decades working in the system, but had enough. Abby was moved to action by the derailment of an oil train near her home that could have exploded and devastated her neighborhood. The climate movement has signaled that spring 2016 will see yet more civil disobedience, with further escalation on the way. Abby and Patrick share their thoughts on how they became rather unlikely activists - motivated by a political system that seems to leave them no other way to protect their families and communities - and how the jury responded to them.
