Burning Rage of a Dying Planet by Craig Rosebraugh
Book DescriptionThe Earth Liberation Front (ELF) has been active in the United States officially since 1997, causing over $45 million in damages to various entities. Continuing to grow as an organisation and expand its range of targets, the ELF has opposed directly individuals, corporations and governments that, in the organisation's view, prioritise monetary gain ahead of the natural environment. Rejecting state-sanctioned means of legal protest as ineffective, the ELF uses economic sabotage to inflict financial suffering on those deemed objectionable. Listed by the FBI in February 2002 as one of the largest and most active US based terrorist group, former ELF spokesman, Craig Rosebraugh, charts the history and ideology of the ELF and explores their tactics, successes and limitations. He shows how the ELF offer an uncompromising vision of an earth under assault from the forces of greed and corporate violence and how they employ direct action against those they deem a threat to the planet. In addition, Rosebraugh examines the issues surrounding when violence is or not justifiable and the short and long term political benefits or setbacks to using violence. Finally, he offers a trenchant vision of the future of the environmental movement, radical politics and US democracy under the Patriot act. Whatever your view of direct action or violence, Burning Rage For A Dying Planet is essential reading for anybody hoping to understand the mindset and motivations of contemporary radical environmentalism.
