Former ELF Spokesmen Form New Revolutionary Organization (english)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Former Spokesmen for North American
Eco-Sabotage Group Form New National Revolutionary Organization in U.S.

PORTLAND, OR – Leslie James Pickering and Craig Rosebraugh, the former spokespersons for the North American Earth Liberation Front, announced today the formation of a new revolutionary organization in the United States called Arissa.

“Arissa is an effort at building an effective revolutionary movement in the United States,” the group proclaims on its website located at http://www.arissa.org. “Until such time as a revolution occurs, the U.S. political structure will continue to inflict widespread atrocities on a domestic and international level.”

Both Pickering and Rosebraugh operated the North American Earth Liberation Front Press Office, an independent public relations group ideologically supporting the Earth Liberation Front. The Earth Liberation Front, or E.L.F., is an international underground organization that uses direct action in the form of economic sabotage to stop the destruction of the natural environment. Since 1997, the E.L.F. has inflicted over $45 million in damages to individuals, corporations, and government agencies in the United States alone.

Pickering and Rosebraugh left the press office after concluding that more directed, strategic, and severe action needed to be taken against the political structure itself in the United States. Both maintain that only a political and social revolution in the United States will create the necessary opportunity to alleviate most domestic and international human and environmental problems caused by the U.S. government.

Determining that the pursuit of building an effective revolutionary movement must begin with public education, Arissa in near future will be offering educational materials in various forms of media designed to demonstrate the need for a revolution in the United States.

Any more information? (english)

There are any number of anarchist groupings and federations around the country doing good work. Why form yet another one? Your website doesn't really say anything. It just seems like one big cult of personality around one person. Is this really a healthy formative basis for launching a revolutionary organization?
