Warning: Earthfirst.org Is Not a Movement Website

Beware of this website which is masquerading as an Earth First! movement networking tool. Please help us spread the word.

Beware of this website which is masquerading as an Earth First! movement networking tool. Please help us spread the word.

from Earth First! Newswire

The out-dated websites EarthFirst.org and its affiliated EarthFirstNews.com are not connected to the Earth First! movement. There is no accountability on where the “donations” go, nor the content that is posted. The owner of the site, Greg Thorne, is a web domain speculator who has had no known connection to the movement for at least a decade. Unless this changes, we ask that you do not promote the site in any way. If you have donated there in the past, we suggest you ask for a refund so that you can direct your money to a project which is accountable to the EF! movement, such as the Journal (which has a collective that is responsive on a daily basis and meets openly at EF! gatherings twice a year) , or directly to one of the many active campaigns which can be found through the EF! Newswire.

If you are curious for further details about the website owner, they are all available through simple public research. Several members of the Earth First! Journal Collective have attempted to communicate via email and phone over the past several years. The only result has been Thorne removing the Journal contact from his website.

While we do not aim to slander this individual, we feel people should be aware of how this site is damaging our movement by misdirecting funds and attention away from current, relevant movement news and analysis.
