Pollution

A group of young adults recently filed a lawsuit against the Federal government (of the United States), over the issue of pollution. The judge ruled in their favor due to the fact that their constitutional rights were being violated because the government is promoting the use of fossil fuels. This relates to our current topic of slow violence becuase we've been discussing how enviormental issues do not get recognition in media but in literature instead. So this case si somewhat of an outlire becuase it used political methods instesad of artistic methods or literature.
