The Book-Club will discuss chapters 3, 4 and 5 of “Green is the New Red: An Insider’s Account of a Social Movement Under Siege” by Will Potter.
We are grateful to the author who has agreed to answer questions arising from reading the book. We will gather the questions and email them for her reply.

The book club will take place on the 7th November, at 6.00pm in KC Peaches. See below for details of what to read for this book club.

WHAT TO READ:
Chapter 3) The Green Menace
Chapter 4) Naming Names
Chapter 5) Red-baiting

ABOUT THE BOOK:
“At a time when everyone is going green, most people are unaware that the FBI is using anti-terrorism resources to target environmentalists.
Here is a guided tour into an underground world of radical activism and an introduction to the shadowy figures behind the headlines.
But here also is the story of how everyday people are prevented from speaking up for what they believe in.
Like the Red Scare, this ‘Green Scare’ is about fear and intimidation, and Will Potter outlines the political, legal, and public relations strategies that threaten even acts of nonviolent civil disobedience with the label of ‘eco-terrorism’.”

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Everyone will have an opportunity to discuss and ask questions about the book. Further discussion is available on the Book Club’s Facebook Group Page.
