Earth First 

EF! originated in the USA in 1979, but from there spread around the world, and morphed to suit local conditions & priorities.

In the UK it was successfully started in 1991, and quickly grew, developing it’s own distinct character. Initially the biggest campaigns were around imports of tropical timber and anti-roads campaigns, though there were numerous smaller campaigns. Genetic crops, international solidarity, peat and climate change have been other strong campaigns over time. To read a bit about the history, have a look at the short articles in these EF!AUs: 1 | 2 | 3, or read the 20 Years of British EF!leaflet.  For even more voices & other notable protests, see here and here

Schnews (Newspaper)

SchNEWS was born in a squatted Courthouse in Brighton in 1994 as part of Justice? – Brighton’s campaign against the Criminal Justice Act. A few bright sparks decided to start reading out the news. Some of those bright sparks then decided to put some of it on paper – nearly ten years later and we’re still printing! From the anti road protests at the M11 in London to the Newbury Bypass to the big Reclaim The Streets events of the nineties SchNEWS was there. From worker’s struggles such as the Liverpool Dockers, fights against privatisation of public services to reporting on social centres and sustainable futures – week in week out SchNEWS reported the news from the direct action frontlines.
