Aired on January 14, 2015 on Democracy Now

The third interview I’m posting about the governments role in suppressing activists and keeping the truth from the public.

Eric McDavid, environmental activist released from prison on Thursday, less than a week after federal prosecutors disclosed they withheld key evidence in the 2008 trial that led to his conviction on “eco-terrorism” charges.

Ben Rosenfeld, Eric McDavid’s lawyer. He is a civil rights attorney who specializes in cases dealing with police and FBI misconduct. He is also an advisory board member of the Civil Liberties Defense Center.

Jenny Esquivel, member of Sacramento Prisoner Support and also Eric McDavid’s partner.
