EARTH LIBERATION FRONT TAKES RESPONSIBILITY FOR ARSON OF ROSS ISLAND SAND AND GRAVEL CEMENT TRUCKS

The underground Earth Liberation Front (ELF) has claimed responsibility for the arson of two cement trucks belonging to Ross Island Sand and Gravel in
the Portland, Oregon area. In their communiqué the ELF warns, "If Ross Island Sand and Gravel mines in the Columbia River Gorge, then the E.L.F. will take
necessary action. Let this be a warning to all the greedy corporations who exploit our Earth's natural resources, especially those who do it under the FTAA and the title of "free trade."

In recent years Ross Island Sand and Gravel have made headlines in Oregon for their environmentally destructive practices, including the dredging of toxic
disposal cells.

*The following communiqué was sent anonymously to the North American Earth Liberation Front Press Office:

"The Earth Liberation Front claims responsibility for the fire that took place at Ross Island Sand and Gravel on Sunday, April 15th. For many years Ross Island Sand and Gravel has been guilty of stealing soil from the Earth,
specifically the lagoon on Ross Island. Further, the recent acknowledgment of the dredging of toxic disposal cells has drawn our attention to the exploitation that Ross Island Sand and Gravel commits against our Earth. In
their Easter basket we decided to leave four containers with gasoline and a time delayed fuse placed under two of their cement trucks. If Ross Island Sand and Gravel mines in the Columbia River Gorge, then the E.L.F. will take
necessary action. Let this be a warning to all the greedy corporations who exploit our Earth's natural resources, especially those who plan on doing it under the FTAA and the title of "free trade."
