From the Secret Vaults of the BLM: Hip-Hop Land Management

by Russ McSpadden

The Bureau of land management, or (mis)management if you will, oversees 264 million acres of public lands for multiple uses including long hikes, hunting, drunken ORV joy riding, oil extraction, mining and cattle grazing. They’ve long been criticized as a bureaucratic government arm of private industry, but, in this recently unveiled video that had hitherto been locked away from public view, the BLM shows itself in a new light and with far more street-cred than you might think. For real, this shit is dope!

    Well I hope by calling “This Shit Dope” the writer is using a healthy dose of irony, the BLM sells off The earth to the extraction industry!

    And don’t forget to check out the Earth First! Journal’s new Punk Compilation CD, “No Compromise”, to be released next month through All We Know Records.
