Technically she disobeyed the law or committed civil disobedience mainly because she found that the laws were unjust and that she has a moral duty to disobey a law that contradicts what she thinks is right. This is particularly the case when the law of the city contradicts the customs of the people and the traditional laws of the gods. Antigone’s decision not to follow Creon’s decree against giving Polynices a proper burial is therefore an example of civil disobedience.
