This radio documentary covers the cases of environmental political prisoners Eric McDavid and Marie Mason, who are both serving sentences of around 20 years in prison in the US. We look at why these two are considered to be political prisoners and the movement of prisoner solidarity around the world. We explore the significance of these cases from a global perspective and talk about June 11th, the international day of solidarity with Eric and Marie.
Former earth liberation political prisoner, Jeff Luers shares his story. Author of Green is the New Red, Will Potter, shares his insights into the international implicaitons of these cases. Jenny from Sacramento Prisoner Support discusses Eric McDavid's case and Peter from Support Marie Mason talks about Marie Mason's case. The show is hosted by Australian forest activist Miranda Gibson, who brings her personal perspective on the role of prisoner solidarity in the environment movement.
