This man is Will Potter. He has a powerful story of what the government is doing to activists – treating them like terrorists. That’s right, the simple act of standing up against big corporations, the government, lobbyists, etc. for something that you believe in, such as human rights or environmental rights, could land you in jail or worse.
There are a lot of details here so I highly recommend that you read the interview with Mr. Potter in this link below.
