Earth First! Fist, Volume 15

Blount, Allison, et al., eds., Earth First! Journal 15, no. 5 (1 May 1995). Republished by the Environment & Society Portal, Multimedia Library.

In this issue of Earth First! Journal Leslie Hemstreet contributes her thoughts on the active summer 1995 and encourages EF!’ers to continue with direct action despite their holidays. In addition, Judi Bari brings good news from the protests against MAXXAM/Pacific Lumber (PL) company, and Mark Ottenad discusses how the timber industry welfare is a disaster for ecology.

When you finish reading this piece, I want you to go take a look in the mirror and chant the following mantra: ”I don’t have time to be looking in the mirror. My planet needs me!” Then smash the mirror. You no longer have time for vanity. Grab yourself firmly by the ear and go outside.
