In this issue of Earth First! the editors offer a list of “22 Things to Do as an Earth First!er,” Joyee Newman discusses what it means to be a radical, and Peter Dustrud states in his editorial that: 

We are not, and the Earth is not, alive because of power first, greed first, progress first or war first—we are alive due to the Earth First—always have been, always will be. We are Earth First!ers! The survival of this one and only planet we have is what counts.
