Joshua Frank and Jeffrey St. Clair / Kickstarer

Two established investigative reporters are hoping to raise funds to publish a book exposing government repression of environmental activism. Both spent two years crossing the country uncovering the events that have rocked the environmental community since 9/11. FOIA requests and interviews with dozens of activists reveal frightening new federal policies and tactics intended to destroy the radical environmental movement.

ABOUT THIS PROJECT



PORTLAND (May 6, 2011) -- We are looking to put the finishing touches on a book that has been in the making for the past two years. Both of us have traveled around the country uncovering the events that rocked the environmental community since 9/11.

We filed FOIA requests, interviewed dozens of underground activists and discovered frightening new policies and tactics that were intended to destroy the radical environmental movement from the ground up.

Your support will help offset the costs we already accrued as well as the final phase of research that needs to be completed.

Thanks for taking the time to support independent media. The future of our democracy depends on it.
