Earth First! Fist, Volume Ten

Davis, John, et al., eds., Earth First! Journal 10, no. 6 (21 June 1990). Republished by the Environment & Society Portal, Multimedia Library.

In this issue of Earth First! John Davis writes an open letter to the FBI, Mike Lewis discusses various responses to violence, Dale Turner gives an update on the Bush Administration’s attack on the Endangered Species Act, and Mary Davis sheds light on old-growth forests in the American East.

Ironically, even as Nepal and Mongolia, as well as Eastern Europe and Russia, apparently are becoming more democratic, the US is becoming a police state with a disproportionate amount of the force being applied against Earth First! […] Why, pray tell, are you trying to crush Earth First!? Is it because you perceive environmentalists as “winning,” like the clearcutters and other land despoilers do? If so, you’re as foolish as them.
