“Eco Warriors” is an in-depth look at the underground world of radical environmentalists who will go to any lengths to advance their cause.
For the authorities eco warriors are not simply idealists but terrorists, and many nations have taken increasingly repressive action over the past several years. The FBI ranks them as one of the greatest threats to national security in the United States after Al Qaeda.
