As corporations and profiteers become more audacious in their assault upon the natural environment and our non-human co-habitants, more and more people are standing up in the defense of the voiceless. Rather than heed the groundswell of grassroots resistance, the powerful have turned to the law and its enforcers to silence those that would resist the growth of the death economies. The result has been a linguistic transformation: from activist to terrorist
Come join us as we welcome Will Potter and Jake Conroy to Chapel Hill Wednesday, January 23, 2013 to talk about the implications triggered by this transformation. Will Potter, award winning journalist and author of “Green is the New Red,” will discuss how eco-terrorism has been manufactured by corporate America and how all activists are at risk. Jake Conroy, a long-time animal rights activist, will discuss his own personal experience of being labeled terrorist for his involvement in America’s most successful animal rights campaign to date – Stop Huntington Animal Cruelty.
Internationalist Books & Community Center will be tabling the event and offering Will Potter's book, Green Is The New Red, a And Insider's Account of A Social Movement Under Siege.
Croatan Earth First! will also have a table with literature.
