Issue five of Earth First! calls for support of the (continued) Glen Canyon Dam campaign and lets Tir Eriaur Aldaron speak.

The Earth is our first love, our first concern. Our children must be imbued with an unswerving sense of responsibility and respect for Her, and a recognition of the significance of our role leads to even greater dedication.

— Tir Eriaur Aldaron (Watcher, alone and ancient, friend of the Trees)
