Earth First! Fist, Volume 13

Fox, ML, ed., Earth First! Journal 13, no. 5 (1 May 1993). Republished by the Environment & Society Portal, Multimedia Library.

In this issue of Earth First! Journal Karen Pickett calls for attention to the real purpose of the EF! journal and movement. In addition, Gene Lawhorn presents a native peoples’ perspective on environmentalism, and Don Smith and Mike Roselle contribute “Deep Ecology, Animal Rights, and Native People: A Perspective.”

It is biocentrism that defines our movement, it is not anarchy. The rallying motto/call is not fuck shit up but no compromise in defense of Mother Earth.
