Documentalist facing 45 yrs in prison for filming Dakota pipeline protest

Documentary filmmaker Deia Schlosberg was arrested while filming an activist shutting down a tar sands pipeline in North Dakota.
In solidarity with protesters opposing the Dakota Access Pipeline, activists shut down similar valves in Washington, Montana, and Minnesota on the same day.
Now Deia Schlosberg is facing 45 years in prison – authorities have charged her with two Class A felonies and one Class C felony, including conspiracy to theft of property, conspiracy to theft of services, and conspiracy to tampering with or damaging a public service.
Schlosberg talks to RT America’s ‘News with Ed’ on the issue.

An online petition with more than 26,000 signatures has called for the charges filed against Schlosberg to be dropped.
