Earth First! Fist, Volume One

In issue three of Earth First! the editors stress the diversity and pluralism of the movement and present the already established committees.

In diversity there is strength. That’s an old ecological maxim, but it holds true for organizations as well as for ecosystems. The people united in Eart First! are linked by our common love for the Earth—and by our belief that Earth must come first.
