Earth First! Fist, Volume 18

Schweizer, Errol, et al., eds., Earth First! Journal 18, no. 7 (1 August 1998). Republished by the Environment & Society Portal, Multimedia Library.

In this issue of Earth First! Journal James A. Barnes and Craig Beneville report about an assembly of anti-environmentalists on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. In addition, John Hallam gives an update on the protests against the Jabiluka mine in Australia, and Errol Schweizer contributes a piece on “Radical Ecology from the Urban Jungle.”

Chairman McCollum introduced the proceedings by explaining the nature of the “growing and extremely disturbing problem of violent acts by radical environmental organizations, or ’ecoterrorism.’” And while he asserted that his purpose in convening the hearings was not “to unfairly malign any person or group,” he made it clear that “radical environmentalists [i.e., you and me] generate nothing but terror.”
