Earth First! Fist, Volume 18

Anderson, Sis, et al., eds., Earth First! Journal 18, no. 3 (2 February 1998). Republished by the Environment & Society Portal, Multimedia Library.

In this issue of Earth First! Journal Mark Lucey talks about the Zapatista National Liberation Army (EZLN) in Mexico, Michael Dorsey discusses environmentalism and racism, Lacey Phillabaum sheds light on endangered owls and Goshawks, and Rhys Roth puts focus on depleting fossil fuels to extinction.

North Americans are making a mess. The US, with only five percent of the world’s population, consumes 32 percent of the world’s petroleum and plastics and produces 25 percent of the world’s greenhouse gases. […] It is patently absurd that here in the US we consume and destroy our resources like no society on Earth and then actually use that as a rationalization against immigration.
