Is Eco terrorism still terrorism
Yes, The earth liberation front has been on the FBI's target list for a very long time as a terrorist group.
Just cause the FBI considers them a terrorist group doesn't make them one. You could make the argument that the USA military is a terrorist group. ELF or any other Eco terrorist group has ever killed anyone. It's all property damage
I'd argue strongly that they are a terrorist group and you should look into the horticulture fire at the University of Washington in Washington state. They destroyed nearly extinct plans that will never come back.
Furthermore, their goal is not to take life but mistakes happen. The damage they do and the fires they start could easily take a life one day if they haven't already. That is terrorism.
If that's what I think it is what happened was they thought the owners were using pesticides when they wernt. Now I don't condone any act of anything you could say is violent without eniugh Intel however still support the movement
Along with terrorism is subjective. One mans terrorist is another mans freedom fighters. To Iraq the USA is the terrorist. To Osoma Bin Laden he thought he was a freedom fighter for doing what the USA had done and helped Israel do for years
I agree that one man's terrorist group maybe another's freedom fighters but I do not agree that the earth liberation front qualifies as freedom fighters.
Here is some information on the fire and you can feel free to Google a different source because this is not the best one out there but it was the easiest one to find.
Why do they not
