In this issue of Earth First! Darryl Cherney gives an update on the protests against logging in Goshawk Grove in Sanctuary Forest, California. Daniel Gibson writes on waste management, Roland Knapp calls for attention to the neglected White Mountains in California, and ecologist George Wuerthner untangles the “let burn” policy in Yellowstone National Park.

The Iroquois Indians used to live and plan according to the principle of “Seven Generations.”
All decisions made by the Iroquois were considered in light of the possible effects they could
have on the seventh generation following the decision. This stands in marked contrast to the typically short sighted decision-making process that shapes modern America, one that could have disastrous consequences for us all.
