The Role of Journalists in Protecting Animals: Interview with Will PotterPosted by Jennifer Molidor, ALDF Staff Writer on November 4, 2014
ALDF sat down with award-winning investigative journalist and author Will Potter recently at the 2014 Animal Law Conference. Watch the interview:
Will is a co-plaintiff in ALDF’s lawsuit challenging Idaho’s “ag gag” statute, which attempts to criminalize constitutionally-protected free speech. Why? To “gag” and silence whistle-blowers who tell the truth about illegal activity on factory farms, including unimaginable animal cruelty.
For more about these issues, see ALDF’s interview with Will Potter, where we discuss his book Green is the New Red: an Insider’s Account of a Social Movement Under Siege, the ways animal advocates are persecuted by FBI, and the cultural war between the corporate agricultural industry and the public.
