"A thoughtfully alarming examination of the U.S. government's post-9/11 domestic terror probes."
-- Utne Reader
"A powerful exposé of how civil liberties are being threatened, how big corporations put young activists behind bars." -- Treehugger
"A fascinating book that helps shed some light on how counter-terrorism efforts have eroded constitutional rights and continue to threaten democracy in America."
-- Bill of Rights Defense Committee
"What is so endearing about Green is the New Red is that it's written in the style of a novel, not a reference guidebook, which adds so much more to its credibility. Each chapter brings personal accounts of unfairness and malicious treatment of people who want to get involved with movements that would improve our society. Whether you believe in the methods of these activist groups or not, the facts are glaringly obvious; there is a need for a change in the definition of terrorism and treatment of activists." -- Portland Book Review
"Potter deftly weaves together the political and legislative history of the Green Scare with a personal account... The story he tells is compelling in its narration, shocking and infuriating in its revelations, and ultimately inspiring..." -- Encyclopædia Britannica
"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. Will Potter, participant-observer and partisan-reporter, is the perfect guide, unpacking with wit and skill the most elusive concepts--his discussion of 'terrorism' as myth and symbol is the finest I've ever read. He takes us inside the first moments of a movement in the making--idealistic, hopeful, deeply human in its aspirations and its oh-so-human failings--and he reports brilliantly on a ruling power willing to hollow out any sense of authentic democracy in its futile attempt to maintain dominance, privilege, and their arid version of reality. 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
"Will Potter unveils this complex movement with its virtues and its flaws, the courage of a few and the false bravado of others. I see this book as the definitive overview of the genesis of what is emerging as the most important social movement in human history--the war to save ourselves from ourselves."
-- Captain Paul Watson, Sea Shepherd Conservation Society
"If we are to survive capitalism's death grip on our discourse and on our lives, it will be in great measure due to the work of people like Will Potter. His courage and integrity, which set him apart from most journalists, are evident throughout this important book, and throughout all of his other crucial work. Thank you, Will Potter."
-- Derrick Jensen, author of Endgame and many other books

Scary if you're an activist. It does offer hope, but I came away somewhat discouraged & wondering if protesting will even be possible in the future without facing assault weapons... Read morePublished 11 months ago by Mwilcox M.

Better than I ever would have expected. This book pissed me off, which is exactly what it intended to do. Create and run a website and be labelled a terrorist? Secret prisons? Read morePublished 11 months ago by bassgirl19
