The Oregonian : A “Must Read” on Eco-Terror
IN SEPTEMBER 1999, The Oregonian published the most comprehensive accounting yet by a US newspaper of the costs of “environmental terrorism”.
Journalists Bryan Denson and James Long worked for 10 months with such organizations as FCUSA, the Forest Service, and Americans for Medical Progress, and interviewed a host of key figures in the animal rights / eco-terrorism movement. The result is a comprehensive account of the movement’s history, its rise in America, and the costs it now forces society to pay.
By examining the backgrounds of such players as Earth Liberation Front press officer Craig Rosebraugh, Animal Liberation Front spokesman David Barbarash, and convicted terrorist Rodney Coronado, the authors provide a fascinating insight into the way terrorist groups operate. They also examine what law enforcement and Congress can, and just as important cannot, do to reverse the tide.
This four-part series should be considered a “must read” for all those whose livelihoods are threatened by these terrorists’ “no use” agenda.
Part 1 (Sept. 26, 1999): Eco-terrorism sweeps the American West
Escalating sabotage to save the environment has inflicted tens of millions of dollars in damage and placed lives at risk.
Part 2 (Sept. 27, 1999): Ideologues drive the violence
Radical environmentalists and animal rightists, once separate camps with little use for each other, have joined forces and turned eco-terrorism into a persistent threat.
Part 3 (Sept. 28, 1999): Terrorist acts provoke change in research, business, society
Saboteurs’ influence extends to vivisection, herbicide use, even filmmaking.
Part 4 (Sept. 29, 1999): Can sabotage have a place in a democratic community?
Experts say it tears at society; some extremists say it’s how to get change.
