=o= There's been one injury, a man named George Alexander.  A
blade in a mill with poor safety conditions hit a nail and he
was seriously injured.  This was widely propagandized as the
fault of Earth First!, but in fact there is no reason to believe
that EF! or any environmentally-motivated individual put that
nail in that tree (which was not logged from a contested stand

EF!; he blames his employer's lack of concern for the lives of

torture tactics used against the kids who were nonviolently
