Congress Pressures Sierra Club To Name ELF, ALF As Terrorists
05 Nov 2001
Modified: 06 Nov 2001
A letter has been sent from Congress to the Sierra Club asking them "to disavow the Earth Liberation Front and the Animal Liberation Front, calling them terrorist cells."
Actual text of Sierra Club memo follows:
==============================

The House Subcommittee on Forests and Forest Health has sent a letter to the Sierra Club asking us to disavow the Earth Liberation Front and the Animal Liberation Front, calling them terrorist cells. We believe they have also sent copies of the letter to the press. Carl Pope will be the only spokesperson responding to any and all inquiries about this letter. Please forward every press call on this issue to Joanie Clayburgh, our Press Secretary in SF, at 415-977-5508. Thank you,

David Willett
Associate Press Secretary
Sierra Club

First They Came for the Jews

First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left
to speak out for me.

well, maybe they feel emboldened by the announcement that your organization made shortly after 911, that you would refrain from criticizing george w. bush during this time of national crisis...or maybe your endorsement of al gore for president...and you call yourselves enviromentalists...typical liberal garbage
