Felony charges with 45 year sentence filed for videotaping tar sands pipeline shutdown

In a chilling development, prosecutors have filed major felony charges whose maximum sentences total 45 years in prison against journalist Deia Schlosberg for filming the direct action that shut down all five pipelines bringing tars sands "oil" into the US on October 11. This is an extreme and dangerous provocation by prosecutors, who seem to be begging the global movement against extreme extraction to escalate even further.
