Protecting the Environment

December 08, 1987

In response to the malicious actions of the Earth First!, I must formally contest their most improper means of social protest.

In order to draw media attention to their cause, the group strategically placed railroad ties on a section of the Barstow to Vegas motorcycle race course (Part I, Dec. 2). Fortunately, no one was injured or killed. However, this does not alter the fact that Earth First! knowingly and purposely erected a dangerous obstacle. Someone should be held responsible for this dangerous and illegal publicity stunt. I invoke the legal system to closely evaluate the treacherous form of protest employed by Earth First! and to repudiate these radicals so that protests like this might never occur again.
