In reply to Eco documentaries and more on fracking, posted by Beckett on March 25, 2012, at 14:18:28
"Ben Kessler, a student at the University of North Texas and an environmental activist, was more than a little surprised that an FBI agent questioned his philosophy professor and acquaintances about his whereabouts and his sign-waving activities aimed at influencing local gas drilling rules.
It was scary, said Kessler, who is a national organizer for the nonviolent environmental group Rising Tide North America. He said the agent approached him this past fall and said that the FBI had received an anonymous complaint and were looking into his opposition to hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking. The bureau respected free speech, the agent told him, but was worried about things being taken to an extreme level.
I found the above article at this site http://www.greenisthenewred.com/blog/
The book Green is the New Red is good so far. DemocracyNow! has some good clips of the author commenting (with others) on various topics. One of them the existence and utilization of two CMU's (communication management units or high security prison units set apart from other prisons) here in the States.
