Earth First! Fist, Volume 18

Franz, Susan, et al., eds., Earth First! Journal 18, no. 4 (20 March 1998). Republished by the Environment & Society Portal, Multimedia Library.

In this issue of Earth First! Journal Allisone Lunn discusses spirituality and various theories used within the Earth First! movement, Nick Jukes puts focus on Shell’s political influence in Nigeria, and Julia Butterfly Hill speaks about her efforts to save the Headwaters forest.

Those who are frustrated by ineffectiveness and ongoing debates, take heart, because these are the growing pains of our resistance. We are privileged to have open discussion on differences of opinion. Soon enough, we will be faced with revolution in North America and our movement cannot continue to be paralyzed by debates of theory and tactics.
