Activists who used non-violent civil disobedience to protest refugees being sent back to Africa are now formally charged with terrorism.

Meanwhile, people in power who exploit and sexually assault the vulnerable continue with impunity.

Pipeline CEOs vow to fight back against environmental activism and sabotage

This is Kelcy Warren, CEO of the pipeline company @ETPfacts , saying pipeline opponent "needs to be removed from the gene pool" If an environmentalist called for this, they'd face felony charges.

Environmental activists have become more intense and sophisticated in their campaigns against energy infrastructure. CEOs are fighting back.

Environmentalists Say They're Averting Climate Disaster. Conservatives Say It's Terrorism.

New administration. Same dirty tricks.

“It’s about installing fear so they don’t go out and protest in the first place,” said Will Potter, author of the book Green Is The New Red, while comparing ALEC’s recent bill to the actions taken after 9/11. “The purpose of this law isn’t to wrap everybody up and send them to federal prison. It’s to scare people, to create fear.”

The post-9/11 rhetoric vilifying environmentalists is making a comeback.

Unconstitutional “ag-gag” laws criminalize journalism and insulate factory farms from accountability

Will Potter is featured in this great article on why civil liberties and press freedom folks should be concerned about ag-gag laws. So wonderful to see journalism groups on board in the fight!

“Ag-gag” laws are intended to protect the animal agriculture industry from public scrutiny by attempting to criminalize journalists and whistleblowers who expose its operating conditions.

Video game prompts charges of 'eco-terrorism' from oil pipeline advocates

It's tempting to just laugh at claims like this, but as Will Potter has reported repeatedly, these media efforts are usually followed by attempts to push new laws...

The game allows users to destroy symbolic oil pipelines with lightning bolts. Industry groups say it encourages violent acts against energy infrastructures. Backers say it's art.

Climate change, Nazis... while there is a consensus on these issues in the sane world, for the Trump administration there are "both sides."

New U.S. ambassador to Canada Kelly Craft says she believes 'both sides' of climate science, and that NAFTA must be modernized and renegotiated toward a common goal between the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.

'Raging' farmer mows down hunt saboteur with a quad bike

Shocking that someone who kills animals for fun would do something like this.

The furious farmer tore over to members of the West Midlands Hunt Saboteurs on his quad, knocking one off their feet and into a ditch before boasting: 'does anybody else want some?'

Cities across the United States are seeking ways to head off the kind of violence seen in Charlottesville, Virginia last weekend when white nationalists and neo-Nazis clashed with counter-protesters over the planned removal of a Civil War-era statue.

"Antifas refused to capitulate to their seemingly hopeless predicament and dared to dream big. Facing an even more fragmented and weakened left than in 1945, American antifascists will have to do the same."
