[Act Out! 206] - The Human Rights Outlaws and Defending an Ancient Forest

Sixteen activists fighting the overt rise of fascism find themselves in the crosshairs of our “justice system.” We take a look at the detention of migrant children, the celebration of white supremacist imperialism and how folks are standing up for justice. Next up, there is precious little ancient forest left in this world – and a patch in Northern California is quite literally on the chop block. We sit down with a forest protector for a look into the grotesque world of logging and destroying in the Mattole watershed.
