WODCW believes in the practice of being harmless to self and others under every condition. It comes from the belief that hurting people, animals or the environment is unnecessary to achieve an outcome and refers to a general philosophy of abstention from violence. Believing in non violence as a practice in our compassionate conservation ethic. Nonviolence also has ‘active’ or ‘activist’ elements, in that nonviolence as a means to achieve political and social change; including critical forms of education and awareness.
“The foundation of my beliefs is the same as it was when I was 10. Non-violence.” Joan Baez
Because of WODCW’s belief of non violence means they cannot support Wolf Patrol because of public accusations of sexual assault of one of its female patrol members.
EarthFirst notice – The Earth First! Journal has been notified that the FBI has recently been contacting someone who they associate with having worked with the group Wolf Patrol.
Even though we at the Earth First! Journal don’t support Wolf Patrol because of its founder’s unwillingness to be accountable to abusive behavior, we are adamantly opposed to the state and do not support the FBI in any of their attempts to contact, interrogate, or imprison anyone, so we are putting out this warning in hopes that folks will be prepared if they are contacted by the feds.
If you are contacted by the FBI—by phone, at your door, over email, or through any other means—do not talk to them. Any information you give them can be used against you, against communities, and against movements. Contact a lawyer, as the person who the FBI recently contacted did.
