Elvish Still Gyrating
Craig Rosebraugh, who periodically acts as a spokesperson for the radical Earth Liberation Front (ELF), has been called to appear before a federal grand jury on Wednesday. Activists who claim connection to ELF have committed a number of acts of eco-sabotage in recent years, including burning down a headquarters building of the Boise Cascade logging company and uprooting 800 genetically modified plants at the University of Minnesota. Their acts are “designed to effect change where it counts in our capitalistic society, in the wallet,” the group said in a recent communique. The “elves,” as they call themselves, communicate with the press by sending messages through Rosebraugh; he says he has no idea who the activists are. Many mainstream enviros criticize ELF’s methods.
