This Spring 1990 issue includes, amongst other articles, a rebuttal in an ongoing argument between EF! members about the role of violence in environmental movements, and in the EF! movement in particular. It was not only a question of tactics but a sense that EF! was being "managed" by those who wished to eliminate violence from their arsenal.

Ecotage is not only effective at saving wild places from Greed-heads, but fun as well. It should be understood as more than a viable tool of resistance, because it is a rite of passage for many of us, and a new ceremonial icon for our movement. [. . .]

In our fight against the burgeoning monoculture, let's not adopt their sameness. EF! is diversity with cooperation. It needs no managing -- united beneath the soil, like intertwining roots, by the resolute standard of "no compromise!" Deep ecology and civil disobedience, poetry and ecotage.
