I have a new article in Counterpunch on how the government landed a conviction of nonviolent activists on “terrorism” charges. Check it out and please let me know what you think!

Here’s an excerpt highlighted by the good folks at Food Fight:

“It’s not enough to cowardly distance ourselves from the ‘eco-terrorists,’ as many did during the Red Scare. That won’t protect us. It’s up to progressive activists to stand with the defendants, and say loud and clear that ‘terrorism’ can’t be batted around in political games. Speaking out against this government smear campaign doesn’t mean we’re balaclava-wearing animal liberationists: it means we know we could be the next communists.

I mean, terrorists.”
