Modern Police State America Where Activists Can Quickly Become Terrorists

Abby Martin of RT America 'Breaking The Set' interviews journalist and author of 'Green is the New Red,' Will Potter, about the federal crackdown on dissent with laws like the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA). The segment also centers on the arrest of Leah-Lynn Plante and other Northwest activists and anarchists who had their homes raided by government agents looking for information surrounding protest that took place in Seattle on May Day. The activists and Lynn were subpoenaed to appear before a federal grand jury and  were subsequently jailed for contempt for refusing to testify about their activities.
