In this issue of Earth First! Dave Foreman steps down as editor to make way for John Davis:

For six years I’ve been editor of The Earth First! Journal. I’ve watched it grow as I’ve watched the Earth First! movement grow. During the past three years, I’ve been aided in producing this newspaper on an ever-increasing basis by John Davis. […]. Before I turn this over to John, let me simply say that editing and publishing The Earth First! Journal has been the high point of my seventeen-year career as a preservationist. 

— Dave Foreman

In addition, Captain Paul Watson gives an update on the war against whalers in Japan, Leon Czolgosz tells the story of Great Basin National Park, and the column Rainforest News reports that Scandinavian tree huggers are blocking road building.
