Earth First! Fist (1991)

Fox, Mary Lou, et al., eds., Earth First! 11, no. 8 (23 September 1991). Republished by the Environment & Society Portal, Multimedia Library.

In this issue of Earth First! the EF! Ocean Task Force calls for attention to the turtle slaughter in Japan, “Freebird” gives an update on the effort to save Walbran Valley, and the recurring column “Shit fer Brains” (letters from readers) is longer than usual. 

I see a bunch of whiney, feminist, geeko computer programmers all trying to turn EF! into a dress wearing, letter writing, debating society of wimps. Rationality, ego, and cowardice seems to be driving EF! into the Greenpeace sellout corner. I am wild, hairy, “woo-woo” and not ashamed of wanting the absolute collapse of civilization.
