Ecoterrorists Plot 'to Destroy Civilization' Wires ^ | Tuesday, July 16, 2002 | Bridget Barton

PORTLAND, Ore. – If you are looking for a way to while away those hot summer days, you might be interested in Green Anarchy Tour, coming to "urban hells" throughout the country this summer.

The tour begins in Ashland, Ore., Wednesday and travels through California and the Southwest before making it to Washington, D.C., in August.

The purpose of the tour, according to its sponsors, is "to destroy civilization on this stolen land."

Green Anarchy Tour is a chance for "environmental" activists, animal "rights" activists, anarchists and urban hell-dwellers of all stripes to gather together to enjoy the musical stylings of punk rock bands such as "Bongzilla" and "The Fartz," and to participate in what they call "Direct Action Workshops."

Direct action is the euphemism that anarchists and ecoterrorists use in lieu of "sabotage," "arson," and other words that might better describe their attacks against government, the business community or society at large.

Wildfires raging in the West and plumes of smoke drifting across the Eastern seaboard from Canadian forest fires are reminders of the consequences that environmental extremism brings to ordinary citizens.

Decades of mismanagement prompted by extreme preservationist groups have resulted in the firestorms now erupting in our national forests. Burned-out buildings, bankrupt businesses, lost jobs, and the destruction of years of valuable medical research all bear the imprimatur of anarchists and terrorists of the sort that Green Anarchy Tour appears to want to attract.

Proceeds from the tour, if there are any, will, according to the official Web site, go to help West Coast anarchist and Earth Liberation Front prisoners such as Jeffrey "Free" Luers and Craig "Critter" Marshall, both convicted of arson for fire-bombing a car dealership in Oregon.

Writing from his prison cell, Luers had this to say about "direct action" by ecoterrorists: "For years, decades, we have pleaded and petitioned those in power, those responsible for injustice, genocide and ecocide. This pleading has gone unanswered. It is time to use actions that can not [sic] be ignored.

'Strike a Match'

"In defense of life, these actions are justified. 'Strike a match, light a fuse. We only have the Earth to lose.'"

Marshall writes from the same viewpoint. "To tear down this corporate society we're going to need more than a few 'wrecking balls' because we can't rebuild an eco-system without tearing down all that stands in its way. You can't grow a garden in concrete."

"The Green Anarchy Tour," the group posts on its Web site, "is an attempt to bridge the gap between the punk movement, the revolutionary anarchist movement, the ecological movement, and prisoners of war who have been incarcerated for their involvement in the struggles listed above.

"The majority of the content encompassed on this tour is from Eugene, an outpost of civilization in one of the most wild bio-regions in 'North America.' Eugene experienced the spirit of wild chaos during a couple [of] years of insurrection. In the aftermath, several comrades were imprisoned, several collectives endured, and what remains today is one of the most sophisticated propaganda mills in history.

"The tragedy of this historic propaganda mill is the geographic limit of it's [sic] reach. While many attempts have been made to present the critique and analysis developed in Eugene, they have not peaked outside of this locale. The Green Anarchy Tour will be an attempt to take the tools we have refined, the tools of resistance, to a new scale.

Will They Travel by Solar-Powered Vehicles?

"Through the media of slides, videos, spoken word, and music, we will share our perspective to comrades across turtle island in what may very well be one of the last state-permitted summers of 'above-ground organizing.' We understand that time is running out, for us and for the earth, and thus we will take our words, ideas, music, and spirit on the snakes of concrete, the civilized transportation infrastructure to various movements in America."

But for the more serious ecoterrorist who eschews the sort of fun and good times that Green Anarchy Tour is bringing to towns across turtle island, there is this alternative option proposed by Earth First!:

"To those feeling suicidal: this may be an answer to your dreams. If you are determined to end it all, don't slink off to some garage and intensify acid rain and the greenhouse effect by CO poisoning. Don't jump off a bridge - blow up the bridge! Who says you can't take it with you?"

Unfortunately, as Earth First! and Green Anarchy Tour remind us, and as we have been reminded in recent weeks by concerns about a dirty bomb possibly in the hands of a U.S. citizen, not all terrorism threats come from outside the country.

Here is the latest "free 'Free'" websit. That picture of 'Free' was taken up in 'Happy,' one of the sits at the Fall Crek tree sit.

This tour is going to be stopping in Fresno I see looking at their tour dates, that surprised me. My impression is these people are more the urban oriented anarchists then those who are involved in tree sits and other related actions.

You and I would volunteer to be their guards. That would be about as much fun as fly fishing. :)

Naah, just a massive love in to exchange body fluids STD's and a little aids here and there. These people kill them selves without any outside help.

Yeah, I always thought her explanation via the fictional methaphor of the factory story (where Galt worked) to be a pretty graphic demonstration of communism.

I don't necessarily associate communism with Soviet Russia but with Marx. When I think communism I think abolition of private property, worker ownership of the means of production, rule by worker committee etc. That's basically what this dimwit- and he is incredibly dim if he thinks his (Marx's) system would work- is advocating. I note that he sells his books (snakeoil) for a nice little sum. I do hope he's redistribuiting all that wealth- hmmm... How does it go? From each according to his ability...

I wouldn't volunteer per se...I'd demand payment in the form "green screams of protest" while performing my duties...In overtime situations I'd expect to receive "screams and a half" as well...

The use of bullwhips could tone up an arm for fishing and bring forth the green screams at the same time.Think positive.;o)

I'm really getting into the long spey rods for fly fishing. So I could get a 15' long and stiff graphic lightening rod and attach a long bull whip to it. Then I could practice my spey casts on dry land. :)

The eco-terrorists really hate human beings, but then, so does Satan.

You are on the best counter free page on the internet!

This is where we hear about these things that the media fails to tell us about.

The media is worried about hate crimes, picked on Islamakazis, and Richard Nixon. They don't have time to tell America the reality of these scumbags.

So we come to Free Republic to learn about these dangerous eco terrorists.

I'm sure that Satan is very proud of his demons from hell who are involved in the Green Eco Terrorism that is directed against humanity.

This is request from the Ping King and his royal pingers. There is a group of eco terrorists who are threatening violence against Americans starting this week. They will be in many American Cities starting with Ashland, Oregon this Wednesday. Then they move into N. Kalifornia to the Bay Area to S. California then across the southern half of our country and back north and then back to the NW. They are advocating violence and acts of terrorism. People in the paths of these eco terrorists need to be warned. Please use your ping lists and reply list to get this word out. Thanks Dave

This is the link to their terrorist site: (Link to the eco terrorists planned terrorism trip coming near to you this summer!)

per "critter": Attacking spokes may slowly make the wheel weaker, but by attacking the hubs, all the spokes will fall making the earth a place where we can healthily co-habitate with all the other creatures.

"attacking hubs" my okole. Start with a bar of soap you creep, then we can talk about healthy cohabitation. After all, "haven't you heard about Dial?" ;o)

Spread the word to your friends from the stop before your area and the area to the next stop.

People living in the rural routes and suburban routes could be in harm's way.

Stay Safe and report to us what if anything these clymers do.
