In 1999, Craig Rosebraugh and Leslie James Pickering founded the North American Earth Liberation Front Press Office that was a legal, above-ground news service dedicated to exposing the political and social motives behind the covert direct actions of the underground Earth Liberation Front (ELF). The North American Earth Liberation Front Press Office received anonymous communiqués from the ELF and distributed the message to the media and public. The office was founded in Portland, Oregon, "to work to explain the importance and necessity of clandestine guerrilla action in a revolutionary movement to liberate the Earth from the stranglehold of the system."

"We encourage others to find a local Earth raper and make them pay for the damages they are inflicting on our communities... Furriers, meat packers, bosses, developers, rich industry leaders are all Earth rapers. We must inflict economic sabotage on all Earth rapers."
-- Rosebraugh/Earth Liberation Front statement 8/1/99

"The realization that what the ELF and ALF are doing is correct. The realization that I support underground direct action aimed at destroying the capitalist ideology, and I want it to increase, dramatically. The realization that in my conscience I know that I am doing what is right."
-- In an interview, "E.L.F. Spokesperson Targeted by Oregon Grand Jury", for No Compromise, Issue 16, Fall 2000

"In light of the events on September 11, my country has told me that I should not cooperate with terrorists. I therefore am refusing to cooperate with members of Congress who are some of the most extreme terrorists in history."
-- November 2001 statement following Rosebraugh's subpoena to testify before a Congressional subcommittee on eco-terrorism 11/1/01

"Physically shut down financial centers. Using any means necessary, shut down the national networks of NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN, etc. Not just occupations but actually engage in strategies and tactics which knock the networks off the air. Spread the battle to the ... very heads of government and U.S. corporations... Hit them in their personal lives, visit their homes. Actively target U.S. military establishments within the United States... strike hard and fast and retreat in anonymity. Select another location, strike again hard and fast and quickly retreat in anonymity ... Do not get caught. DO NOT GET CAUGHT. Do not get sent to jail. Stay alert, keep active, and keep fighting."
-- Open letter to activists, published on the Independent Media Center website 3/17/03

"The World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks are defensible because the terrorist acts were meant to send a legitimate message to Americans. He even put a color photo of the second World Trade Center tower bursting into flames on the cover of his book."
-- The Portland Tribune, March 17, 2004

"Attack the financial centers of the country. Using covert or black block techniques, depending on the situation, physically shut down financial centers, which regulate and assist the functioning of U.S. economy. This can be done in a variety of ways from massive property destruction, to online sabotage, to physical occupation of buildings. However the latter I would shy away from, especially the open civil disobedience type of activities which purposely involve arrests. This movement needs all the assistance it can get and absolutely NO good will come from going to jail. Allowing yourself to be purposely arrested demonstrates that an individual has at least some faith in the U.S. legal system. This is completely foolish. One primary objective is to engage in serious unrest and disruption and NOT to get caught. Not getting caught means you are able to continue the struggle the next day"....."Actively target U.S. military establishments within the United States. Again, following the above stated goal of NOT getting caught, use any means necessary to slow down the functioning of the murdering body."
-- Craig Rosebraugh - On the Anti-War Struggle, Originally published on March 17, 2003

Do not think that he is just for animal rights or the environment. When it comes to America itself, Rosebraugh has no use for peaceful protests, calling them "pointless, and perhaps even counterproductive." Instead, he prefers an activist plan that terrorizes America into withdrawing troops from the Persian Gulf.

In 2003, Rosebraugh obtained a Master of Arts degree through Vermont's Goddard College. His Master of Arts thesis was titled, "Rethinking Nonviolence: Arguing for the Legitimacy of Armed Struggle."

What does this say about Goddard College? What kind of school is it that would allow a Master's thesis based on promoting property destruction and violence on the American people?

Rosebraugh has implied that the anti-war movement simply has not gone far enough. He wants to take the ELF's terrorist tactics and direct them at the federal government.

This sounds familiar... It seems that there was another group of terrorists with the same strategy... Hmmm... Oh yeah, Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols.

"An atmosphere of severe unrest, if manufactured properly, will force the U.S. government to place military resources in the streets of the United States, will threaten the economy... and ultimately create a political atmosphere unfavorable for Bush to continue on with the war."
-- Craig Rosebraugh

What is it about this person that is NOT a danger to Americans?
