Earth First!'s Action Update    Why a New Action

Apparently we have far too much free time and not
enough good ol'
common sense, because we have decided to produce an
Earth First!y
newsletter, an "action update," to compliment the
in-depth analysis
of the Earth First! Journal. A motivated and
(somewhat) skilled few
of us have volunteered to collate action reports,
campaign news,
announcements, eco-prisoner updates (and possibly hot
gossip) into a
small newsletter on a monthly basis.

While the EF! Journal's coverage of radical actions in
defense of the
Earth is in-depth and campaign oriented, the Action
Update's coverage
would be brief and event oriented. With a monthly
newsletter, we will
be able to have timely announcements and post-action
reports. The
world is changing rapidly, the war against the planet
is in full
swing, and everyday there are people defending the
Earth and its
inhabitants who could stand a little more coverage,
help and
movement-building information that a monthly action
update can

Hopefully, working with the EF! Journal, we can
inspire hordes of new
actions and activists! Either way, we need to hear
feedback from you.
Does the movement need another paper? Can we support
it? Can you
help, and how?

In order to do this, we require your help. You will
articles, photographs, artwork, news, action reports,
and more news
about actions (at least if you want to help "spread
the word" you
Earth First!'s Action Update will be small in order to
keep mailing
costs minimal, so keep your submissions short. We plan
to not only
cover Earth First! actions, but all actions in defense
of the Earth
and its inhabitants. While some coverage will be from
around the
world, there already is an EF! Action Update which
covers Europe.
(You can contact them at EF! Action Update, POB 487,
Norwich NR2 3AL,
England; mail@actionupdate.org.uk.)

We plan to run our first issue as the blankwall in the
issue of the EF! Journal. Subsequent issues will be
distributed by
subscription ($15/year) and at gatherings.

Due to the EF!J's production schedule, THE SUBMISSION
ISSUE IS JANUARY 10. (If you do not have anything to
contribute to
the first
issue but want to stay on the e-mail list, write back
to tell
indicate your
interest.) For more information and to send
submissions, contact
