Earth First! Fist, Volume 17

Shapiro, Natalie, Tim Haugen, Craig Beneville, Jim Flynn, and Leslie Hemstreet, eds., Earth First! Journal 17, no. 1 [misprinted as 16, no. 8] (1 November 1996). Republished by the Environment & Society Portal, Multimedia Library.

In this issue of Earth First! Journal Hugh Morose gives an update on the protests against salvage logging of Redwood groves in the Headwaters forest. In addition, Ken Wu discusses Earth First! and its shift towards protecting biodiversity instead of wilderness preservation, and Angela Schmitz reports about the new truce over the Tongass National Forest in southeast Alaska.  

In a drawn-out battle involving Alaska’s powerful congressional delegation, a violently antigreen Congress, a greedy multinational corporation and a well-funded wise use effort, no one would have predicted a conservation victory. For Tongass-watchers in Alaska and across the country, it’s a sudden end to a long and quixotic struggle that was supposed to be finished six years ago.
