Earth Liberation Front Communique via GREENFIRE LA

by Frontline News Servie Tuesday, Jan. 09, 2001 at 11:20 AM

ELF continues its good work.

Underground ELF Sends Further Message Of Responsibility

For The November 27 Fire In Longmont, Colorado

URGENT NEWS ADVISORY

January 4, 2001

LONGMONT, CO - The Earth Liberation Front (E.L.F.) has communicated further information in regards to the November 27th fire that destroyed a new luxury

home in Longmont, Colorado.

The communique sent by the ELF stated, "This message is being sent to tie up some loose ends regarding the boulder ELF direct action on November 27th."

The ELF is an international organization that uses direct action in the form of economic sabotage to stop the destruction of the natural environment.

The communique continued, "The method used to burn down the legend ridge mansion included these steps:

1) We arrived at the legend ridge mansion undetected at approximately 2:50a.m.

2) We placed several pages of the denver post on the wooden floor next 2 the

south-side wall and doused the spot with nearly 4 gallons of unleaded gasoline.

3) We lit a newspaper torch with a lighter and threw it down on the gasoline-soaked spot."

The communique went on to state, "we know that the real 'eco-terrorists' are the rapists of mother earth. We know that the real 'eco-terrorists' are the

white male industrial and corporate elite. They must be stopped. This boulder ELF direct action attempted to financially disrupt the operations of boulder's

corporate developers. Join the resistance!"

The ELF have also recently claimed responsibility for a series of fires attacking urban sprawl on Long Island in New York. Over ten actions in a few month time period have been claimed by the ELF on Long Island.

Over million in damages have been inflicted by the ELF in the United States since 1997 on entities profiting off the destruction of the environment.

COMMUNIQUE SENT BY THE EARTH LIBERATION FRONT

---------------------------------------------



"This message is being sent to tie up some loose ends regarding the boulder ELF direct action on November 27th, 2000. The method used to

burn down the legend ridge mansion included these steps:

1) We arrived at the legend ridge mansion undetected at approximately 2:50a.m.

2) We placed several pages of the denver post on the wooden floor next 2 the south-side wall and doused the spot with nearly 4 gallons of unleaded gasoline.

3) We lit a newspaper torch with a lighter and threw it down on the gasoline-soaked spot.

We embrace the Earth First! philosophy of "No Compromise in the defense of mother earth." We know that the real "eco-terrorists" are the rapists of

mother earth. We know that the real "eco-terrorists" are the white male industrial and corporate elite. They must be stopped. This boulder ELF direct action attempted to financially disrupt the operations of boulder's corporate developers. Join the Resistance!

We support the zapatistas in their negotiations with the u.s.-controlled mexican federal government.

Remember david "gypsy" chain!

Remember judi bari!

The fbi must stop harassing craig rosebraugh.

The fbi must stop harassing ancient forest rescue and radical environmental

student groups at cu.

The fbi must be stopped.

Free leonard peltier!

Free mumia abu-jamal!

Free ted kaczynski!

Free all the prisoners!



We will keep in touch,

the boulder ELF"
