On this show, Lori spoke with Will Potter, award-winning independent journalist. Will’s recent book is titled, Green is the New Red: An Insider’s Account of a Social Movement Under Siege. Will has documented how corporations and government agencies are using their ever-expanding powers to oppose and even imprison non-violent environmental and animal activists. Lori and will discussed the so-called Ag-Gag laws, which are part of this trend, how these laws severely limit free speech, and their status as they are more widely passed. Will’s work is ground-breaking and his findings are chilling. Learn more about Will Potter here. Buy his book here.
