About Everglades Earth First!

This ribbon was created by Rachel on March 19, 2014

EEF! is a non-hierarchical, direct action group dedicated to the defense of the remaining wild lands of the Everglades bioregion. We seek to build relationships with any community struggling for environmental justice and stand in solidarity with those fighting against environmental racism. We recognize that before the unjust colonization by European settlers the land that comprises the Everglades bio-region supported a diversity of life including complex ecosystems and autonomous indigenous communities.

- BIOCENTRISM: “Deep ecology, or biocentrism, is the belief that nature does not exist to serve humans. Rather, humans are part of nature, one species among many. All species have a right to exist for their own sake, regardless of their usefulness to humans. And biodiversity is a value in itself, essential for the flourishing of both human and nonhuman life. “Judi Bari –Revolutionary Ecology

- DIRECT ACTION: Since 2007, EEF! has used tactics such as road blockades, tree sits, lockdowns, protests and other means of mischief to achieve its goals.

- NO COMPROMISE: EEF! will not negotiate or enter into any agreement with developers, the state, or any other entity which would force us to compromise our biocentric philosophy.

*Commitment to Anti-Oppression:* “We define oppressive behavior as *any*conduct that demeans, marginalizes, rejects, threatens or harms any living being on the basis of ability, activist experience, age, class/income level, cultural background, education, ethnicity, gender, immigration status, language, nationality, physical appearance, race, religion, self-expression, sexual orientation, species, status as a parent or other such factors. Oppressive behavior comes in a wide variety of forms, from seemingly harmless jokes to threats of violence, from interrupting to verbal abuse, from unwanted touching to rape, from hitting to murder. Some forms are more extreme and irreparable than others, but all are unacceptable under this anti-oppression policy.” ~ EF! Journal Collective
