From Activist to Terrorist: A Discussion with Will Potter and Jake Conroy

Date: 

Wednesday, January 23, 2013 - 7:00pm

104 Howell Hall, UNC Campus

The FBI labels animal rights and environmental activists the “number one domestic terrorism threat,” and new laws turn activism into “terrorism” if it hurts corporate profits. How did this happen? Why are undercover investigators and those who use non-violent civil disobedience being treated so disproportionately? And what are the real life consequences for the activists who are investigated, and even sent to prison, as domestic terrorists? Journalist Will Potter and activist Jake Conroy will explore these questions from first hand perspectives.
