Marie Mason is a long-time labor and environmental activist, musician, poet, visual artist, and loving mother of two. She is currently in prison in Waseca, MN for her role in two Earth Liberation Front (ELF) acts of economic sabotage in which no one was injured. Marie’s case is part of the Greenscare: the politically-motivated government crackdown on environmental
and animal rights activists.
