Earth First! Fist, Volume 14

Penn, Stefanie, et al., eds., Earth First! Journal 14, no. 7 (1 August 1994). Republished by the Environment & Society Portal, Multimedia Library.

In this issue of Earth First! Journal Della-Mae Hellbender reports about the arrest of 58 activists at the Watts Bar Nuclear Plant. In addition, Howard Armstrong calls for attention to the struggles of Dineh (Navajo) families to stay on their land at the Big Mountain, Arizona, and Al Gedicks and Zoltan Grossman give an update on the Exxon Mineral Company’s return to Wisconsin.

They may have gotten 58 of us, but there were lots more in the woods who were not caught. In several of the articles following the action there would be a paragraph out of the blue saying “inner security was not breached.” Bullshit. It was, and if TVA is going to pursue further charges or press this SLAPP suit it has hell-of-a-lot to do with the fact that they can’t stand that we got behind their fences and glued locks, spraypainted hexes on buildings, and had the potential to really fuck shit up.
