Jeffrey St. Clair, the co-editor of Counterpunch (which was kind enough to publish my response to George Monbiot’s radioactive disinformation) and Joshua Frank, a long time environmental journalist, are set to complete a new investigation of US federal government abuses against US citizens in the environmental movement.
They need your help, with a donation to complete the project. See the linked web page.

About this project
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 enviro 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.
