Earth First! Fist, Volume Ten

This issue of Earth First! features the activities of the EF! movement throughout America. Dale S. Turner gives an update on this year’s Earth Day, Leslie Lyon discusses animal rights, and Captain Paul Watson vents his frustration regarding net-fishing in the North Pacific.

I’m mad. I’ve had It with those ocean raping bastard fishermen from Japan, Taiwan, and Korea. […] These nets are killing our oceans, buckaroos. I’m talking holocaust, the killing fields of the North Pacific. I’m talking about death dealing that makes Hitler, Pol Pot and Stalin look like rank amateurs. Those fascist vermin only killed humans. These scum are slaughtering fish, marine mammals, sea turtles and birds, and transforming the North Pacific into a place devoid of life.
