Arrested (Again) (Dan Goldes / United States) A San Francisco activist puts her body on the line for causes she believes in.
Activist Karen Topakian has been arrested dozens of times for using nonviolent civil disobedience to protest nuclear proliferation, human rights abuses, environmental issues, and war.
