EARTH FIRST! : $6.50, 2011/2012, 8 ½” x 11”, newsprint, 64 pgs.

I knew Earth First as an environmental organization and didn’t realize they also had a magazine. I enjoyed the article, “Wolf Wars.” I had a grindcore band in the early ‘90s called Gitcheegoomee. My bandmates often asked me what I was singing about and I replied, “Wolves.” I’ve been interested in the plight of wolves for a long time and this article didn’t let me down. There is another good article on the energy consumption required by the Internet. I wasn’t moved much by the poetry submissions, but the article on the merging of the Occupy Movement and the Deep Green Resistance movement was inspiring. –Steve Hart (Earth First!
