Will Potter Speaking at "Animal Law: Working With the Grassroots" Conference

Here's a talk given by Will Potter from the Green Is The New Red website mentioned in my previous post today. His bit was at the "Animal Law: Working With the Grassroots" conference at the University of Washington in May of 2008, in which he was a member of the "Representation of Activists" panel. In it, he elaborates upon the "Green Scare" by explaining how the US government--in part through the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA)--has come to vilify and attack environmentalist and animal rights activists, right down to your average vegan potluck attendee.
