Earth First! Fist (1991)

Bodeen, Billy Bob H., Carla Neasel, Gaby Barrett, Timothy Bechtold, and David Varmint, eds., Earth First! 11, no. 3 (2 February 1991). Republished by the Environment & Society Portal, Multimedia Library.

In this issue of Earth First! the newly installed editorial collective presents their values and their intentions with this new phase of the journal. In addition, Lisa Henry sheds light on the Ecotrans’ movement, Donald H. Kern calls for attention to the Montanore mine project’s negative effects on the Kootenai National Forest, and “The Mad Artist” explains how to make a paint balloon inflator.

We cannot continue to claim that the paper is simply an independent voice within the Earth First! movement; if it were so it would yet be a voice so loud that others could scarcely be heard. We are commited to giving voice to all parts of the radical environmentalism, as we affirm the value of all parts of the natural world.
