Reviews

"If you've ever supported an animal welfare or environmental organization, you too may be a suspected terrorist: That's the chilling take-away from Green Is the New Red, a thoughtfully alarming examination of the U.S. government's post-9/11 domestic terror probes, which have inordinately targeted progressive-leaning activist groups. Author Will Potter, a journalist whose own low-level activism ran up against Homeland Security, delves deep into the social, political, legal--and, importantly, ethical--issues raised by this new war on 'ecoterrorism.'" --Utne Reader "While the link between separating recyclables and hijacking planes is far from obvious, the labeling of 'eco-terrorism' has been applied to many aspects of this social movement. Named the 'No. 1 domestic terrorism threat' by FBI deputy assistant director John Lewis six years ago, Potter argues that the fear tactics involved in applying such an evocative term to radical activism is an attempt to intimidate that mirrors the Red Scare of the mid-20th century (which was in fact the second wave of the government's anti-Communist focus)." --Austin Examiner
