US uses old mafia law to nab green activists

The crackdown on eco-activists in the US in intensifying. Green activists can be sentenced to up to 8 years in prison for nonviolent civil disobedience. That may be for example doing tree sits to stop loggers from cutting down old growth forest.

This latest news takes the cake though. Apparently the "justice system" is using laws originally intended for the mafia to charge these brave people.

Read and weep ...
