Download This Episode

As the June 11th day of Solidarity with long-term anarchist political prisoners approaches, The Final Straw will be addressing the Green Scare over the next two shows.

I’m happy to bring you an interview with Will Potter, author of the new book, “Green is the New Red” and founder of http://www.greenisthenewred.com , a blog where Will follows the suppression of free speech and activists working to end animal cruelty and the destruction of our natural environment.

Next week, The Final Straw will bring you an interview with members of the support committees for long-term anarchist political prisoners Marie Mason and Eric McDavid (respectively).

Soundtrack for this week’s episode was taken from Filastine’s album, Burn It, which was pressed by CrimethInc to benefit the legal defenses of victims of Operation Backfire and the Green Scare.

Free all prisoners!
