EARTH FIRST! BRIGID 2014: $6.50, 8½” x 11”, glossy cover, 57 pgs.

Jul 03, 2014

Earth First brings you news on all things environmental going on around the world, and also acts as a forum that anyone can write into and have a chance to get published. Magazines like this aren’t around as much anymore, which is why it’s so great to see Earth First continue to publish in glossy cover, despite most people turning to the internet for news now. The main article in this issue is the protest and saboteurs of the UK Badger Cull, where badgers are pretty much open season for anyone. Secondary articles include effects of the police state on environmentalism and the fight against hydrofracking in Romania. There are countless shorter articles as well. This zine is packed with information. It gives updates on the animal liberation front and earth liberation front, too. The format is beautiful and well done. It’s great to see a zine like this still circulating, and after reading it, I got a subscription. Anyone who considers themselves an environmentalist should absolutely check this one out. –James Meier (Earth First! Journal, PO Box 964, Lake Worth, FL 33460)
