Green is the new Red – how animal rights activists are being targeted like ‘commies’ from the 1950′s

(NaturalNews) Up is down; war is peace; pasteurized, denatured milk is good for you and raw milk is bad; protest is terrorism; and natural health protections and cures are dangerous. This has become the Orwellian rhetoric of our terrible times.

Get ready to add another: Green is Red.Green is the New Red: An Insiders Account of a Social Movement Under Siegeis actually a new book by journalist and animal rights activist Will Potter.

Red refers to the old 1950s red (communist) scare that had Senator Joe McCarthy and the FBI going bonkers looking for commies in America while J. Edgar Hoover, the long time FBI head, denied there was such a thing as a Mafia or Casa Nostra crime syndicate.

Green refers to animal rights and environmental movement groups, activist/journalist Will Potter’s main focus. When Will Potter was working as a journalist for theChicago Tribune, he was arrested one day for handing out animal rights leaflets.

Shortly after his release, FBI agents came knocking on his apartment building door. The FBI agents let him know that if Potter didn’t contact them, he would be “put on the domestic terrorist list.” Following that incident, Will began digging to find out why he would be targeted and harassed by the FBI for such a seemingly-harmless activity.

His journey down that investigative rabbit hole led to networking with other environmental and animal rights activists. What he found was documents that show the FBI and other government agencies have declared war on even peaceful animal rights advocates.

His book combines impartial accurate journalism, personal adventure (reviews say it reads like a novel) and advocacy. Here’s Will’s short commentary ( The book is available through his site (source below) or from Amazon.

The importance of animal rights and environmental activism

Potter is now a freelance journalist residing in the belly of the beast, Washington DC. He has testified in Congress against the government tyranny that uses fighting terrorism as a cover for protecting corporate malfeasance against animals and the environment for profit.

Yet,most of the activitiesof these “terrorists” involve either sneaking or getting work at a factory farm or medical lab, and videotaping horrible conditions and sadistic activities. Occasionally, some animals are rescued, perhaps illegally, and occasionally some graffiti is sprayed or windows are broken. Those illegal but harmless incidents are rare.

But without exposure, without seeing what actually goes on in those facilities, how can there be a public outcry? There need to be human voices for these unfortunate creatures (…).

So government agencies use the terrorist tag, not only in the United States but in Europe, to jail activists and create public opinion against those who simply want to expose what’s really going on in factory farms and medical research labs, get the proof, and occasionally rescue whatever animals they can.

Will thinks that government tyranny against activists goes a step further than just the obvious motive of protecting corporate interests. He explains that exposing actual factory farm and lab animal conditions rips into the very fabric of what sustains our economy, food production and the production of medical drugs and procedures, and the powers-that-be have strong, vested, political interests which they exercise with accusations of terrorism towards those who seemingly only care about unnecessary animal suffering.

If you wish to do anything or find out more about animal suffering and the persecution of those who try to expose it, go to Will’s website below in the sources section. It’s a very comprehensive, easy to view site.

Treating animals inhumanely leads to becoming less humane/human. Ignoring animals’ suffering as a consequence of human greed, and ignorance contributes to this dark dynamic.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
