This Land Is My Land (6.3.2013)

Except when it isn't.

We check back in with Julia Trigg Crawford who is fighting the TransCanada Corporation as it lays pipe for the XL Pipeline. The digging has begun – in spite of ongoing litigation. 

Also in this show, Sandra Steingraber was arrested on Earth Day, and spent 15 days in jail, for protesting against hydraulic fracturing (fracking).  After many years in laboratories, and speaking at panels, she felt the time had come to use her body in direct-action protest.
