Today I led a jury nullification outreach operation in Manchester.
Jury nullification is a jury’s right to nullify a law (or application thereof) it finds to be unjust by refusing to convict a defendant. This approach is mainly promoted as a way of negating victimless crimes. Jury rights activists pass out pamphlets in front of courthouses to inform jurors of this right.
It was cold. Really, really cold. Activists Melanie Johnson and Bob Neighbors were also present.
91 jurors were reached.
This operation was conducted as part of the January jury nullification campaign. You can track the campaign’s progress, and donate to support its completion, here.
