Comments

With a "Forward!" by Edward Abbey. Earth First! was founded by Foreman and four others in the spring of 1980 and leapt to the national stage with their "cracking" of Glen Canyon Dam in the spring of 1982. Shortly after the death of Edward Abbey in the spring of 1989, Foreman was arrested at gunpoint by the FBI at his home in Tucson. By this time most of the original founders and activists had gone on to other pursuits and the original Earth First! was no more. Its heyday was 1980-1985 with the cracking of Glen Canyon dam in '81, the 20th anniversary funeral of Glen Canyon in '83, the Sagebrush Patriot's Rally in Moab and the Gros Ventre Wilderness Rally in Wyoming, the Canyonlands Nuke Dump Protest and the 1985 Earth First! Festival in Salt Lake City, the Bisti Badlands Wilderness Rally, and other events highlighting the years between 1981-1985.
