Earth First! Fist, Volume Three

Foreman, Dave, et al., eds. Earth First! 3, no. 7 (23 September 1983). Republished by the Environment & Society Portal, Multimedia Library.

In this issue of Earth First! stories about the road construction in the Kalmiopsis Wilderness area in Oregon continue. A special section in this issue discusses the Earth First! organization and non-violence, in light of the behavior of some EF! members during the Bald Mountain Road blockade.

Earth First! is not a monolith… . There are many of us, with many styles, many abilities, many callings. We are united in a belief in Earth first… . Many of us feel a need to take to the streets peacefully and legally—but passionately—to voice our opinions about those who would rape our Mother.
