I question your decision to prominently feature (Page Stegner's) review of David Foreman's book, "Confessions of an Eco-Warrior," in the March 10 Book Review. If his biocentrist philosophy were implemented, it would bring about mass deaths through the dismantling of our industrial means of production. It would be more fitting to classify Foreman as an eco-terrorrist. He and his organization Earth First! have maliciously carried out acts of sabotage against private property, and the attention afforded to him in your newspaper only serves to encourage such acts.

An environmental activist pleaded guilty Tuesday to federal charges in an alleged plot to sabotage nuclear facilities in three states, and four co-defendants entered guilty pleas to lesser charges, but the judge did not immediately accept the plea bargain. The defendants, including the co-founder of the radical environmental group Earth First!, entered their pleas in the middle of their federal court trial. U.S. District Judge Robert Broomfield continued the trial until Sept.

Nine o'clock on Saturday morning, and Dave Foreman has just finished a back-yard breakfast with a group of Laguna Beach environmentalists. Within an hour, they'll head up toward an area of Laguna Canyon known as Sycamore Hills and protest the planned six-lane San Joaquin Hills tollway that would crisscross the canyon. It's the same place local residents converged by the thousands in 1989 and, as local history would have it, persuaded the Irvine Co.

Give me silence, water, hope. Give me struggle, iron, volcanoes. -- PABLO NERUDA * Strange to think of him now hiding out in the mysterious canyons of the Colorado Plateau like some solitary prospector from a B. Traven novel.

Jury selection began Monday for the federal court trial of five radical environmentalists, including a founder of Earth First! charged with conspiring to sabotage nuclear plants in three states. In the trial, the government hopes to prove that current and former members of Earth First!, a militant environmental group, damaged ski lifts, sawed through power poles and plotted to sabotage nuclear installations.
