2 The Earth Liberation Front 1997-2002

Pickering, Leslie James Portland, Oregon Arissa Media Group 2007 Trade Paperback


Former ELF spokesperson, Leslie James Pickering, traces the first five years of ELF activity through communiques, underground newspapers, interviews and news media releases. The first book to be published on the ELF, Earth Liberation Front 1997-2002 is a must read for anyone interested in understanding the radical environmental movement in the United States and the birth of a clandestine, underground organization acting in defense of the planet. Leslie James Pickering quit high school at seventeen to struggle against this system that stops at nothing to profit from the destruction of everything. After five years of continuous civil disobedience and protest, he grew frustrated with the lack of results in his activity and helped to found the North American Earth Liberation Front Press Office (NAELFPO) in early 2000. He served as press officer with the NAELFPO until his final resignation in summer of 2002. During this period, the NAELFPO sustained two raids by the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) and the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms (ATF), responded to half a dozen grand jury subpoenas; conducted pubic presentations; produced booklets, newspapers, magazines, and a video on the ELF and handled the release of dozens of ELF communiqués. Through the NAELFPO, Pickering was the editor of Resistance, the Journal of the North American Earth Liberation Front Press Office, as well as many other independently-produced materials regarding the Earth Liberation Front. Pickering served twice as ELF Spokesperson, handling countless local, national, international, corporate and independent media inquires, which resulted in coverage in the New York Times, the Washington Times, The Los Angeles Times, USA Today, Christian Science Monitor, Rolling Stone magazine and many more. He has also appeared in televised interviews with the ABC, NBC, CNN, FOX, CBC and BBC networks, as well as National Geographic TV and many others. He has given lectures at various conferences and at

3 The Evan Mecham Eco Terrorist International Conspiracy

Pickering, Leslie James Pamphlet/Zine

Brand New! 

“As we were talking away, Mark Davis tells me what he wants to do to the Snow Bowl ski lift. I had been dialoging in the Earth First! Journal and talking to people about monkeywrenching. Is it viable? Is it effective?… I went out and did my share of things at night… but just piddily stuff. He presented to me the opportunity to see if monkeywrenching really was going to work. So I said, ‘Okay. I’m in.’” – Peg Millett. “My earliest understandings of Earth First! were almost mythological – people escaping into the wilderness, dismantling bulldozers and blasting dams. When I finally encountered Earth First! in person, what I saw was something quite different – a much more public organization, with an impressive array of campaigns and tree-sits . That myth never left me, however, and seemed to accompany Earth First! wherever it went. A couple years later, I had the privilege of seeing Peg Millett speak and perform at Laughing Horse Books in Portland, Oregon and got a glimpse of what was beneath the folklore. Peg and her group had been monkeywrenchers. The FBI had infiltrated them. They had served time in prison. More time passed, and I found myself in a very public role speaking on behalf of a new clandestine effort in defense of the wild, the Earth Liberation Front (ELF). I became intimately aware of the specifics surrounding the group’s actions, philosophy and history. I increasingly saw how each action and event played its own role, not just in the ELF’s progress, but the growth and evolution of the overall struggle. In February of 2002, a Congressional Subcommittee was held on “eco-terrorism” and an FBI agent briefly testified about a predecessor to the ELF, known as the Evan Mecham Eco Terrorist International Conspiracy (EMETIC).  I had to know more. Who was this group? What had they done? How had they laid the foundation for the underground struggle that had enveloped my life? As yet more time has passed, I’ve now seen many people speak in vague and mystical terms about the Earth Liberation Front and have realized just how important it is to thoroughly and accurately document and publicize the histories of our freedom struggles. The first half of this 60-page booklet, published by Eberhardt Press and Burning Books, details EMETIC’s series of guerrilla sabotage actions against nuclear power plants, uranium mines and the Snow Bowl ski resort in the Grand Canyon region, as well as their arrests and subsequent trial. The second half is an interview I did with Peg Millett, fleshing out additional details and relating EMETIC to the ELF. This history is essential for us to contextualize where we are currently at in the Earth liberation struggle and remind us of our own strength. As always, read and apply.” Leslie James Pickering
