Earth First! Fist, Volume 18

Evarts, Craig, et al., eds., Earth First! Journal 18, no. 6 (21 June 1998). Republished by the Environment & Society Portal, Multimedia Library.

In this issue of Earth First! Journal Stefan Wray discusses how to monkeywrench using computers and the Internet. In addition, Susanne Wong reports on the occupation of the Maheshwar dam site in India, and Jan Lundberg expresses his opinions on the use of cars within the EF! movement. 

Computers. Some of us swear by them. Others against them. […] It is almost impossible to function today without being touched by computers. […] Given that our political opponents are among the most wired in the world, it is foolish to ignore the computer. Rather, it is important to turn our attention toward it, to understand it and to transform it into an instrument of resistance.
