For anyone familiar with the case of human rights activist Martin Gottesfeld - who faces felony charges under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) and awaits trial in prison. The same office and act was relentlessly used against the Internet pioneer and activist, Aaron Swartz, until he was driven to suicide in 2013. Marty faces allegations that he conspired with members of the “hacktivist” group Anonymous to organize an online sit-in of Boston Children's Hospital public website to stop the torture and save the life of Justina Pelletier - we have him call in on the show from his cell in prison and discuss with him the charges and what people can do to help. Also on the show we discuss the recent approval of part of the travel ban by the Supreme Court, the lack of a vote still on the proposed Republican 'Turtle Care', as well as give an update on tensions with North Korea.
