Earth First! Fist, Volume Eight

Foreman, Dave, et al., eds., Earth First! 8, no. 1 (1 November 1987). Republished by the Environment & Society Portal, Multimedia Library.

The Earth First! celebrates its 7th anniversary and Dave Foreman provides us with stories from the past. Bill Devall reports with skepticism from the Fourth World Wilderness Congress, George Wuerthner proposes a new national park in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom, and Chim Blea discusses why the political Left has attacked the Deep Ecology/Earth First! movements.   

Some argue that seven years is a special period in human lives, after which change occurs. The ”Seven-year Itch” is a good example of this. Since this newspaper lays no claim to total rationalism, seven years seems like a good milestone to acknowledge.
