FORMER ECO-SABOTAGE SPOKESPERSON, CRAIG ROSEBRAUGH, RELEASES SPOKEN WORD CD DISCUSSING THE LEGITIMACY OF POLITICAL VIOLENCE
PORTLAND, OR - "THE LOGIC OF POLITICAL VIOLENCE: Lessons in Reform and Revolution" was released today by Arissa Media Group in Portland. This 65 minute spoken word cd contains a live lecture given by Craig Rosebraugh at a bookstore in Portland in 2003.
"Within Westernized societies, particularly the United States, there has been a near universal acceptance that non-violent action has been the foundation on which the progress and/or success of political and social justice movements has been built. Yet, contrary to popular beliefs held by many in the United States, political violence has played a crucial role in advancing historical justice struggles. This lecture examines the historic role that both nonviolence and political violence have played in social and political movements both in the United States and internationally." - From the cd cover.
From 1997-2001, Craig Rosebraugh received international notoriety from his role as a spokesperson for the Earth Liberation Front. Considered to be the top domestic terrorism threat in the United States by the F.B.I., the ELF has inflicted over $43 million in damages since 1997 to entities profiting off the destruction of the natural environment.
Rosebraugh resigned his spokesperson position in 2001 after believing that more directed and extreme action was need against the political system in the United States. In 2003, Rosebraugh co-formed Arissa, an effort to build a revolutionary movement in the United States.
