Die Ökologie- und Tierbefreiungsbewegung im Fadenkreuz von Staat und Kapital

3. – 14. Juni 2012: Der US-amerikanische Journalist und Autor Will Potter auf Tournee durch Deutschland, Österreich und die Schweiz.
 In den USA und zunehmend in Europa gerät die Ökologie- und Tierbefreiungsbewegung ins Fadenkreuz der Staatsapparate und Chef-Etagen der Konzerne. Der freie Journalist, Autor und Betreiber des Informationsportals greenisthenewred.com Will Potter aus Washington D.C. zeigt in seinem 2011 publizierten Buch Green is the New Red anhand langjähriger Recherchen zur Geschichte der US-amerikanischen Ökologie- und Tierrechtsbewegung, wie ein Netzwerk aus staatlichen Behörden, Medien, Interessenverbänden, Think Tanks und Unternehmen zum konzertierten Schlag gegen den „number one domestic terrorism threat“ (FBI) ausgeholt hat.
Mit vereinten Kräften geht es – ganz im Sinne westlicher „Sicherheits“-Doktrinen – mit einem Bündel aus medialen, rechtlichen, politischen und ökonomischen Kampagnen und Maßnahmen gegen jene „grünen“ Bewegungen vor, die sich nicht mit einem „Green New Deal“ abspeisen lassen wollen. Während die Washington Post sie öffentlich zur „eco-al-Quaeda“ stempelt und das FBI nach „eco-terrorists“ fahndet, diktieren Lobbygruppen der Fleisch- und Holzindustrie den US-Regierungen Gesetze in die Feder, die aus legalem politischem Protest Verbrechen machen. AktivistInnen schmoren unterdessen im Land von Freiheit und Demokratie ohne Kontakt zur Außenwelt in einem Sondergefängnis, das nicht zu Unrecht den Beinamen „Klein-Guantanamo“ trägt.
Die Repressalien in der westlichen Welt treffen heute – wie einst die „roten“ demokratischen und sozialistischen Bewegungen – nahezu jeden Versuch oppositioneller Praxis, gleichgültig wie qualifiziert er ist, und jeden noch so zögerlichen Widerstand, der den kapitalistischen Betriebsablauf nur geringfügig stört.

Will Potter is an award-winning independent journalist based in Washington, D.C. He is the author of Green Is the New Red: An Insider’s Account of a Social Movement Under Siege. This site is about how animal rights and environmental activists are being targeted as "eco-terrorists," and what that means for our safety and freedom.

Will Potter kritisiert aber nicht nur die Reaktionen der politischen Klasse und wirtschaftlichen Eliten auf die erfolgreichen Strategien der Ökologie- und Tierbefreiungsbewegung, die an den Grundfesten eines Systems rütteln, das vor allem eine gigantische Aktiengesellschaft zur Ausbeutung der Natur ist. Er dokumentiert mit seiner Arbeit auch den Prozess der autoritären Anpassung westlicher Demokratien an die Erfordernisse einer krisenhaften, von gewalttätiger Konkurrenz und Klassenherrschaft getriebenen kapitalistischen Gesellschaftsordnung.

If you happen to receive a message with an e-mail attachment,
please be aware that our sender address might have been spoofed
and we advise you to check that mail carefully without first opening
the attachment.
If you suddenly don't receive mails from the usual list any more,
but didn't unsubscribe, your mailbox or your ISP might have

! Avoid having your e-mail with ISPs, who are on the list of
fraudulent and/or notorious mail interceptors and trackers like
aol, yahoo, msn, hotmail, gmail etc.
Ad-mails (spam or UCE) are terrible, but don't use ISP- or web-based
filters, since you never know their criteria. Stay in control and install the
anti-virus, anti-spam and firewall yourself, which are unfortunately
necessary in these days, and maintain them yourself on your system!

and "whitelist" of your spam filter, and tell your ISP or company's IT group
to allow this address to pass through any filtering software they may have
set up. If our emails don't reach your inbox, also look in your "Bulk Mail"
or "Junk Mail" folder. If you write to us and you don't receive a response
within two working days, please send your mail again - it most likely was
intercepted or got lost on the way. Try as much as possible to use
encrypted mail (PGP, Steganos or AEP - http://www.secureaction.com).
Sorry, if your e-mail address bounces several times, your address will be
unsubscribed since we have to keep a rather strict unsubscription policy.
