01) Protesting Lawyer Burns Himself To Death


“A prominent New York lawyer has died after setting himself on fire in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park to protest against the use of fossil fuels.

David Buckel, 60, had been well-known for his work on behalf of the LGBT community, as well as with environmental groups.

A suicide note near the lawyer’s remains said he had immolated himself using fossil fuel to symbolize the damage humans are doing to the Earth.

I agree with this assessment.

Only a tiny number of people are likely to be tangibly impacted by your suicide.

If you intend on fighting any injustice in this world…removing yourself from the equation, will only weaken that fight.
