What is Earth First!?!?
Welcome to this User-Sponsored web site. As you can see, there's quite a comprehensive design plan underlying it all. There's also some pretty cool stuff already up, lurking, e-wrench in hand, behind many of these links.
But many links go nowhere right now. Like this one. That's where you come in. Is there some aspect of this site you would like to support and see further developed? Well then! Send a contribution payable to Earth First! and tell us what you want more of... More Warrior Poet issues! More on Genetic Engineering actions! More Eco-defense! More road show info!
Of course these donations are sliding scale: no one's preferences or opinions turned away for lack of funds. This is a porous project that will continue to grow. It's only limited by the love and support we get from the users of this site. But please don't spend too much time at this web site. There's a lot of work to do right now out in the fields and forests and corporate board rooms.
So come back soon and see what has sprouted here in this section that seemed of interest to you. And if you can, please send a contribution and a note to:
P.O. Box 324

Rockin' in the Tree World!
P.S. In the meantime, here are some scribbles grafitti'd by the weboteur of this web site. Got something better to write on this? What are you waiting for? Send it along to Hayduke Rocks!

- Earth First! is about shining as a beacon of ecological justice to remind the others in our societies of the urgent need for an immediate ecological shift in human economic activity and modern lifestyles.
- Earth First! always has an exclamation point!
- Earth First! is not about any organization, bureaucracy or club. It is about tuning in to something inside your self, and because of it, acting with others, taking personal responsibility for ecologically fixing society.
- Earth First! has a battle cry: "No compromise in defense of Mother Earth!"
