If A Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front

'If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front' explores two pressing issues - environmentalism and terrorism - by lifting the veil on a radical environmental group the FBI calls America's "number one domestic terrorism threat." Daniel McGowan, a former member of the Earth Liberation Front, faces life in prison for two multimillion-dollar arsons against Oregon timber companies.

Having known a good deal about the ELF/Green Scare before watching this movie, I didn't find anything too groundbreaking in it. With that said, I thought they did a good job illustrating both sides of the coin. I would like to have seen them talk a bit more about certain issues/topics relating to the ELF movement and the broader picture of things. End:CIV talks about some of the broader aspects I thought that may have been brought up in this movie.

If you are readily aware of the ELF you may not find it to groundbreaking, but none-the-less it is a good documentary that establishes a dialogue that I think could be more prevalent in todays social commentary.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $35.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $35.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $35.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $35.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
