With Only Our Tongues for Our Swords

Hi, I'm Will Potter. I usually write at GreenIsTheNewRed.com.

Here I'll be posting articles, thoughts from the road, and far too many photos of vintage motorcycles and old hardcore bands.

  1. These are the stakes. These are the risks that many communities around the globe face for fighting back. If there is something positive to come out of horrific crimes like this, perhaps it is a reminder that if others can continue their struggle in such a climate of fear and violence, so can you.

    Friday event in San Diego for this weekend’s national weekend of action against the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA). I didn’t get a chance to make a sign, but fortunately there were extras. Leaflets were passed and we heard some inspiring words.

    I’m on my phone and no good at linking to more info. If you wish to learn more about the AETA, it’s creation, and how it is silencing animal rights activism and our First Amendment rights, read Green Is The New Red by journalist Will Potter. Mother Jones also has a current and informative article about how ag gag laws, and AETA shape the agriculture and activist communities.

    Got this super rad zine in the mail the other day from one of the little dudes at wearepioneerspress!

    If you’ve ever wondered what life is like for a budding photo prodigy/heir to a zine empire living in the middle of butt-nowhere, KS, Big Diamond will give you a pretty good idea. This kid has so much heart it’s unbelievable. He loves everything and everybody, his commentary reflects that, and his photos would be perfectly at home in the pages of Vice or some other hipster rag that prides itself on pictures showcasing “gritty authenticity”. Except Liam is, you know, 3 1/2 years old, and therefore doesn’t know how to be contrived, which makes it even better, because he’s actually authentically authentic and not fake-authentic, commodified-authentic, so-not-punk-rock-authentic. Y’know??

    Pick this one up if you like Star Wars, stuff made by kids, photo zines, or looking cool in front of your art school friends. Liam is a treasure. Thanks for the zine, little buddy!

    LIAM IS BLOWING UP

    Beautiful shots of our farm by Will Potter. Had a lovely visit with him last week. Went by far too quickly.

    Adam Gnade, Marc Saviano, Will Potter and I went to the mall casino Friday night because we knew it would be terrible. It didn’t disappoint. We got followed by security, despite being on our best behavior, buying their watered-down drinks and putting all our money into the “OMG Kittens” slot machine. But the reason I am sharing this collection of photos is because it proves that Will and I are still capable of laughter and having a good, stupid fun. (I think it’s safe to say that sometimes we take ourselves too seriously.) It would have been great to be able to fund Will’s next book on “OMG Kittens” slot machine winnings, but I’m sorry to tell you that we walked away empty handed.

Liam finished his first zine last night! It’s called “Big Diamond” and it’s a collection of his photos with descriptions. There’s also a short interview with Liam in the back. Adam is taking it to the print shop RIGHT NOW, so as soon as Liam is done stapling them, they’ll be available on the Pioneers Press website. Congrats to Liam on his finishing his first zine!
