http://democracynow.org – Award-winning filmmaker Josh Fox joins us to discuss the arrest of fellow filmmaker Deia Schlosberg, who is charged with three felonies for filming an act of civil disobedience in which climate activists manually turned off the safety valves to stop the flow of tar sands oil through pipelines spanning the U.S. and Canada. “These people are not accessories to the crime, they are they media,” Fox says. “This is a constitutionally protected activity.” Schlosberg was the producer of Fox’s recent documentary, “How to Let Go of the World and Love All the Things Climate Can’t Change.”
