Interview with Betty Krawczyk, a "Raging Granny," an 83-year-old great-grandmother who has since taken civil disobedience to new heights, garnering international attention for having been arrested on eight occasions and serving more than three years in prison for refusing to budge on her eco-feminist principles, or to acknowledge wrongdoing. She says she is merely standing up for the rights of nature. More recently, Krawczyk has taken up the cause of aquaculture and genetically modified farm fish. She has run for office on several occasions, and she's written four books. She has eight children and eight grandchildren, and as an eco-feminist, she proposes to devote the rest of her life to trenchant opposition to the forces responsible for what she calls "societal and ecological breakdown."
