ELF, or FBI? (english)
05 Sep 2002
Interesting similarities to a "public consiousness build up" of COINTELPRO era.
The following is excerpted from the supposed ELF press release forwarded to the ELF Press Office. Note: ELF is a completely decentralized "movement" of eco-defenders, with very clear principles that the below text cleary conflicts with. While the National Forest service is a valid target because of it's complicity in Big Business and Earth Exploitation, the communique is nonetheless of questionable circumstances.
We would like to direct the attention of readers to W Churchill and J VanderWall's book AGENTS OF REPRESSION, specifically what they have to say regarding the Murderous FBI agent-provocatuer Dennis Durham (chapter 8).
ELF Cell Press Communique (with Numerous Comments) found here:
"These agencies continue to ignore and mislead the public, at the bidding
of their corporate masters, leaving us with no alternative to
underground direct action. Their blatant disregard for the sanctity of
life and its perfect Natural balance, indifference to strong public
opposition, and the irrevocable acts of extreme violence they perpetrate
against the Earth daily are all inexcusable, and will not be tolerated.
If they persist in their crimes against life, THEY WILL BE MET WITH MAXIMUM RETALIATION[!!!]
In pursuance of justice, freedom, and equal consideration for all
innocent [why just "inocent life" ? Who do they define as "guilty"?]life across the board, segments of this global revolutionary
movement are no longer limiting their revolutionary potential by
adhering to a flawed, inconsistant "non-violent" ideology. While
innocent life will never be harmed in any action we undertake, WHERE IT IS NESSESARY, WE WILL NO LONGER HESITATE TO PICK UP THE GUN to implement
justice, and provide the needed protection for our planet that decades
of legal battles, pleading, protest, and economic sabotage have failed
so drastically to achieve. "
It is a common tactic of provocation to utilize the culture and spirit of direct action to create a seemingly more militant act, therby attributing the act to the OVERALL movement, rather than autonomous acction. Then using such instances as excuse for JUDICIAL repression.
So, look soon for actions on the part of "ELF" that WILL injure or KILL a person, therby "forcing" the authorities to act without restraint. Read the communiques very carefully.
The comments above are either quasi-ELF writings (meaning govt bullshit) or extremely misinformed ELF Cell cadre. They COMPLETELY CONTRADICT THE ELF PHILOSOPHY!
