Protests at the North Dakota Access Pipeline, fighting for clean water, have been met with absurdly repressive resistance from the police. Militarized police were sent to break up extremely peaceful protests. They arrested actress/activist Shailene Woodley and 27 other protesters. Similarly, near the environmentalist shutdown of the Tar Sands Oil pipeline, not only activists were arrested, but also award-winning documentarian Deia Schlosberg. When the local police prepare themselves with ultimate force to arrest peaceful protesters and journalists, they make journalism a dangerous crime. What could this mean for the future of political opposition in America? Lee Camp discusses this and more on Redacted Tonight.
