The "Green Scare" refers to the federal government's expanding prosecution efforts against animal liberation and ecological activists, which is strikingly similar to the "Red Scare" of the 1950s. The "Green Scare" includes the cases from the "Operation Backfire" indictments, and the cases of the SHAC7 (shac7.com), Eric McDavid (supporteric.org), Rod Coronado (supportrod.org), Jeff Hogg, Josh Wolf and several recent federal grand jury subpoenas.
