Human rights activist Martin Gottesfeld faces felony charges from Carmen Ortiz’s office 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. Join Marty & Dana, while Marty joins the podcast from behind bars, to discuss topics around human rights activism, prison reform advocacy, & current events related to those topics.
