Will Potter on ARZone

Postby Sunkanrags » Tue Jul 05, 2011 10:31 pm

ARZone is pleased to announce this week’s Live Guest Chat.
Will Potter is an award-winning independent journalist based in Washington, D.C., who has become a leading authority on “eco-terrorism,” the environmental and animal rights movements, and civil liberties post 9/11.
Will is the author of “Green Is the New Red: An Insider’s Account of a Social Movement Under Siege”, available now from City Lights Books.
He has tracked how lawmakers and corporations have labeled animal rights and environmental activists as "eco-terrorists." And he has closely followed the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act, the Earth Liberation Front arrests in "Operation Backfire," and the landmark First Amendment case of the SHAC 7.
His reporting on the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act has been recognized by Project Censored for outstanding investigative journalism,” as one of the top 25 “stories that didn’t make the news” in 2007. He has also received the Mark of Excellence award for feature writing, presented by the Society of Professional Journalists, in addition to recognition from Scripps Howard, Lantern Books and the Press Club of Dallas.
Will runs the Green is the New Red website, which is about how animal rights and environmental activists are being labelled "eco-terrorists," and what that means for the safety and freedom of us all at http://www.greenisthenewred.com/

He received his master’s in writing from the Johns Hopkins University and graduated summa cum laude from the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in journalism.

Will welcomes the opportunity to engage ARZone members on a range of topics, from his work on how the war on terrorism affects civil liberties, “Green is the New Red” his new book and his philosophies in general.

This is an event for which questions must be submitted to ARZone prior to Midnight GMT, Wednesday 6 July via email to Carolyn@ARZone.net.

ARZone is supportive of education, critical thinking, rational discourse, and aims to provoke intelligent dialogue about issues that most concern members of the animal advocacy movement.

ARZone does not endorse or promote the views of its guests and forum participants; ARZone does endorse and promote creative education efforts.
