  Supposedly, Earth First! monkeys have now stopped tree-spiking,
and in these newsgroups some claim to have "renounced violence."
Now, this is mighty big of them. But, at the same time, they sell
and promote literature that enourages other types of sabatoge and
assaults on innocent workers and business owners. This is mighty
nasty of them. So, if they really have "renounced violence" it
would be nice of them to stop promoting it and making a profit
from it by selling books that instruct people how to do it against
innocent people. One of the books they push called "EcoDefense"
is the literal bible of fundamentalist wacko environmentalist
terrorist type who think they are saving Big Mama Gaia by assaulting
innocenct workers and business owners. Too bad more of these creeps
have not been caught convicted and thrown in the slammer.
