Now he's going to a new type of environment, a new learning experience.

Yes, yes he will. He's going to learn the true meaning of "Bubbalicious."

Public school is exactly where he learned to be a terrorist.

Here's what they did, either as a group or working in twos:

In July of 2002, they used chemicals to etch ELF onto the windows of a Parham Road McDonalds.The trio also damaged construction vehicles on a Route 288 work site.

In August, 2002 in Goochland, they used a hatchet and tools to break windows and damage homes and a tractor in the Temple Heights neighborhood still under construction.

On September 21st, 2002, two of them tried to blow up several vehicles, including a crane at the Short Pump Town Center construction site. They stuck wicks inside the gas tanks and lit them.

Just a week later, two of them hit the Universal Ford Dealership, defacing the windows of 25 SUVs.

Each time, they left a calling card claiming it was the responsibility of ELF. Federal officials say it's amazing that no one was seriously hurt in any of the incidents.

Although these arrests will impact the individuals involved, and the community in which they live, this does not pose a problem for the Earth Liberation Front as a whole. The ELF operates using the strategy of leaderless resistance, where individuals and groups who carry out actions never know or meet others who may also be active. This means that even though one group may be broken up through legal action such as this, others involved in the ELF will not be affected

In the history of the ELF, there have been very few arrests and even fewer convictions. None of these law-enforcement actions have put an end to the Earth Liberation Front in North America, which in 2003 had a record-setting year in terms of total property damage.

The ELF Press Office supports those who are facing repression at the hands of state and federal law enforcement and is available for e-mail interviews concerning this matter.

The Earth Liberation Front is an international underground organization that uses direct action in the form of economic sabotage to stop the destruction of the natural environment. Since 1997, the ELF in North America has caused over $100 million in damages to entities who profit from the destruction of life and the planet.

The Earth Liberation Front Press Office is an autonomous entity that serves to publicize news and actions of the ELF, as reported through news media or by anonymous communications from the individuals involved in activities.
