From Earth First! to Lowbagging: My Struggles in Radical Environmental Action

Mike Roselle with Josh Mahan

St. Martin's Press



Lauded by some, despised by others, Mike Roselle is one of the most controversial figures in the crusade to protect the environment. Mike has succeeded in stopping a lumber project by spiking trees, struggled with death threats and the car bombing of fellow activist Judi Bari, endured countless days in jail, infiltrated the Nevada Test Site to delay nuclear bomb detonation, helped put a gas mask on Mount Rushmore's George Washington, and aided actor Woody Harelson in draping a banner up on the Golden Gate Bridge. He has spent over thirty years fighting back against big business, negligent management and the lawless actions of the government itself for the safety and preservation of our great earth.
Tree Spiker: From Earth First! to Lowbagging: My Struggles in Radical Environmental Action is a fascinating autobiography from the front lines of a radical movement.



Mike Roselle stops blasting on Cherry Pond Mountain

On Monday, February 16 2009, at about 11am, two members of Climate Ground Zero were arrested for interfering with MTR blasting on the Massey Energy-owned Edwhite mountain top removal site near the Shumate Dam on Cherry Pond Mountain. The Shumate dam holds back 2.8 billion gallons of toxic sludge, the waste by-product of chemically cleaning coal, and sits above the Marsh Fork elementary school.
