Today at 10:15 am Forest Guardians' chief canvasser, Mike Cherin,
discovered a pipe bomb when he opened the mailbox outside Forest
Guardians' office in Santa Fe. The bomb did not explode and no one was
hurt. Police bomb squads subsequently arrived and detonated the bomb,
which was loaded with ball bearings, meaning it was designed to kill.
Last week Rio Arriba County hosted a day-long meeting of officials from
counties in Northern New Mexico and Southern Colorado. The purpose of
the meeting was to get more counties to join Rio Arriba in intervening
against Forest Guardians et al. in the national economic lawsuit, and to
censure the State of the Southern Rockies report authored by John
Talberth and Bryan Bird (a Wildlands report).
The people who spoke at the meeting are all known to us - Ike deVargas,
Santiago Juarez, Chellis Glendinning, and Richard Rosenstock. They
foment hatred and violence against Forest Guardians and Zero Cut on a
regular basis by calling us genocidal racists etc. in public forums and
publications, particularly La Jicarita , a newsletter circulated in
Northern New Mexico. According to Bryan Bird, who was there, numerous
threats of violence were made at that meeting.
We are very, very thankful that Mike was not killed. I can post
whatever stories are printed in tommorrow's papers. Mike says it makes
him want to work harder than ever.
The FBI has become involved and is treating the bomb attempt as a
terrorist act. The bomb was larger than originally thought. According to
the FBI it could have blown apart the building and killed pedestrians in

We have so much more to do! We are working so hard to get the word out to
the world via the Internet on these crucial and cutting-edge campaigns
against these outrageous atrocities! Our postings about David Chain's
killing have now gone out to over a million people on five continents and
been translated into French, German, Greek, Italian, Spanish and Russian.
WE NEED YOUR HELP RIGHT NOW
We have just gone through a tormenting last five months and are flat broke
with broken down gear, scant supplies, and late bills to cover. We are in
need of certain supplies as well, such as Epson 740 ink cartridges, zip
disks, videotape, postage, and subscriptions to periodicals, if we are to
continue on after March.
Please send contributions to further our work in support of the above and
dozens of other EF! campaigns, payable to "Earth First!," to
