In issue two of Earth First! the editors confirm their seriousness and invite readers to radicalize the conservation movement.

If you believe in wilderness, if you love the Earth, if you are appalled at what humankind is doing to the biosphere, then don’t be timid. Speak out. Act with vigor and pride in your convictions! It’s time for us to fight!
