Green Is the New Red by Will PotterGreen Is the New Red: An Insider’s Account of a Social Movement Under Siege (City Lights, 2011)

“Part history, part action thriller and courtroom drama, part memoir, Green Is the New Red plunges us into the wild, unruly, and entirely inspirational world of extreme environmental activism… Green Is the New Red is an indispensable book that will change the way we think about commitment, the limits of protest, and the possibility of radical change.”
— Bill Ayers

“In this hard-hitting debut, journalist Potter likens the Justice Department targeting of environmentalists today to McCarthyism in the 1950s… A shocking exposé of judicial overreach.”
— Kirkus Book Reviews (starred review for “remarkable merit”)

“Potter warns of the crumbling of the legal wall separating ‘terrorist’ from ‘dissident’ or ‘undesirable’. . . Alarming.”
— Publishers Weekly
