    70 years of research gone! Priceless

    IRVINE, Pennsylvania - The Earth Liberation Front (ELF) is claiming responsibility for an arson attack last month on the U.S. Forest Service Northeast Research Station in Irvine, Pennsylvania.
    The laboratory was set ablaze during the early morning hours on August 11, causing more than $700,000 damage, and destroying part of 70 years worth of research.

    "This lesson in 'prescribed fire' was a natural, necessary response to the threats posed to life in the Allegheny Forest by proposed timber sales, oil drilling, and greed driven manipulation of Nature," the group said in an anonymous release. "This facility was strategically targeted, and if rebuilt, will be targeted again for complete destruction. Furthermore, all other U.S. Forest Service administration and research facilities … should now be considered likely targets."

    The ELF communique says the Forest Service is misleading the public about its research, "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," the release adds. "If they persist in their crimes against life, they will be met with maximum retaliation."

    ELF, one of the groups that the federal government has dubbed "ecoterrorists," argues that it is not restricted to nonviolent forms of protest in its pursuit of environmental protection.

    "While innocent life will never be harmed in any action we undertake, where it is necessary, 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," the group states.

    If we were not all law-abiding, peaceful citizens, which we, each and every one, are, this might require perhaps just a little "leaving us with no alternative to underground direct action."

    But we would never resort to that!
