Earth First! Fist, Volume Five

Foreman, Dave, et al., eds., Earth First! 5, no. 8 (22 September 1985). Republished by the Environment & Society Portal, Multimedia Library.

This issue of Earth First! discusses the rehabilitation of wilderness and visionary proposals for big wilderness. Moreover, Mary Sojourner reports on the Grand Canyon Uranium Mine protests, Dan Dagget discusses road building in the Coconino National Forest, and David Seals calls for cooperation between natives and natural people.

“Indians are too controversial,’ declared a senior Sierra Club official a few years ago. ‘We better not get too involved with you. We’re working on so many sensitive issues that Treaty Rights and Native Sovereignty would upset some of our delicate coalitions, particularily with the League of Women Voters.’ I kid you not, that’s what he said. Ray Beaulieu stopped me from killing the guy right there.
