Act of Civil Disobedience essay

assignment is to write an essay in which you argue for an act of Civil Disobedience. Consider both MLK’s “Letter From Birmingham Jail” and Edward Abbey’s “Eco-Defense.” In both of these pieces, the author defends the merits of an action that is technically illegal, but in the eyes of the writer, “ethically imperative.”

Remember that I am not advocating that you actually break the law. Instead, you will argue for or defend the merits of breaking a law (or rule, or regulation) that you believe is unjust (that is to say “wrong”) in a way that will ultimately do “the right thing” in your eyes. Use Abbey’s and MLK’s writings as inspiration, for both authors argued why their illegal actions were still right, but you do not necessarily have to write in response to their particular issues (environmental protection and discrimination, respectively).

Let me know if you have any questions. Also, remember that your essay must be a minimum of 500 words. Finally, as the syllabus says, remember to bring a copy of this essay to our next class meeting, as there will be an opportunity for peer review.
