Earth First! Fist, Volume 19

Reese, John, et al., eds., Earth First! Journal 19, no. 4 (20 March 1999). Republished by the Environment & Society Portal, Multimedia Library.

In this issue of Earth First! Journal Brian Tokar focuses on genetic engineering and other types of biotechnology, Katúah Earth First! in Northern Georgia, US, relays news of struggles and triumphs in that region, and John Bowling reports from the British EF! winter meeting.

Biotechnology ultimately seeks to commodify all that is alive and bring all of life into the realm of commercial products by altering the patterns of nature so as to better satisfy the demands of the marketplace. Where nature is not well suited to continued exploitation, biotechnology offers the means to redesign life.
