From coordinating with the Pentagon to spy agencies, the WikiLeaks founder maintains that the tech giant maintains a startlingly close relationship with the government.

New York City police arrested the outspoken Rev. Billy Tallen for blocking the destruction of a 130-year-old tree in the city’s East Village. A Parks and Recreation Department arborist had condemned the tree as structurally unsound, but Rev. Tallen and his group of supporters felt the “Bendy Tree” endangered no one and the order to remove it was another example of the environment being disrespected. He was taken into custody after climbing on top of a city-owned truck to stop it from cutting down the tree. The environmentalist and activist explains his reasoning and beliefs to RT’s Manila Chan.
