jailed for blog

Created by: 

The federal government put Earth Liberation Front activist Daniel McGowan back in prison after he wrote a blog post for The Huffington Post about his incarceration. In 2006, McGowan pleaded guilty to arson, for fires linked to the Earth Liberation Front. He was released on parole last December. He was re-incarcerated because the blog post violated terms of his release that restricted him from interacting with the media.

We spoke with Marshall Curry last year about his Oscar-nominated documentary chronicling McGowan's story, called “If a Tree Falls.”
