FORMER SPOKESPERSON FOR THE EARTH LIBERATION FRONT

FORMER SPOKESPERSON FOR THE EARTH LIBERATION FRONT (ELF) SUBPOENAED TO APPEAR BEFORE A U.S. CONGRESSIONAL SUBCOMMITTEE ON ECO-TERRORISM

Take part in the NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION AGAINST STATE REPRESSION. A national protest will be held in Washington, D.C. on February 12, 2002. For those who can't make it, please consider organizing a local support protest in front of U.S. federal building in your city!
This hearing may have dire ramifications for us all!

Craig Rosebraugh was a spokesperson for the North American Earth Liberation Front (ELF) from 1997-2001. The ELF is comprised of anonymous, autonomous cells committed to causing economic damage to those systematically destroying the earth in pursuit of profits. After years of watching the government become more and more an instrument of big money, the observation was made that, since money is the only thing those in power value, their pocket is where they must be hit. Since 1997 ELF has inflicted more that million in damages to entities profiting from the destruction of the environment. The ELF has never inflicted loss of life, but its actions have persuaded some companies to cease doing business with destroyers of the environment.

On October 31st Craig received a subpoena to testify at a Congressional Subcommittee meeting on "eco-terrorism." Craig is commanded to appear before the Congressional Subcommittee on Forests and Forest Health at 3:00 p.m. on February 12, 2002 in Washington D.C.

The latest subpoena is part of a long history of harassment waged in retaliation against Rosebraugh for passing on anonymous information and expressing support for a cause unpopular with the monied factions that own the government. Craig has already faced seven grand jury subpoenas and has had his home and businesses raided twice. Hundreds of items of property valued at thousands of dollars were stolen by federal agents during these raids. Federal agents have followed Rosebraugh and monitored his communications for years. And have never come up with an indictment.

At a Congressional meeting on October 3, 2001, U.S. Rep. Scott McInnis (CO), chairperson of the Subcommittee on Forests and Forest Health, argued that Craig should be subpoenaed to provide them with information on the ELF. When one of the committee members made the reasonable objection that subpoenaing Craig would be a waste of time, he was accused of being "soft on terrorism." The committee member thusly accused had simply pointed out that Craig had been subpoenaed before and had never given any information, that his house had been raided, etc.
