Earth First! Fist, Volume 17

Turtle, Beth Fern Faerie, et al., eds., Earth First! Journal 17, no. 4 (20 March 1997). Republished by the Environment & Society Portal, Multimedia Library.

This issue of Earth First! Journal is filled with tributes to the deceased Earth First!er Judi Bari. In addition, Stefan Wray calls for ending capitalist dominance in the world and Theresa Kintz discusses ethics and cloning technology.

One of the arguments used to justify current cloning research is the potential for “saving” endangered species. There has been talk about creating endless supplies of breeding populations of near-extinct species through cloning—a notion that could someday be used to undermine a law like the Endangered Species Act. Why be overly concerned about protecting populations of animals in their natural habitats when you can just make more of them?
