We are proud to announce the release of the new EF! Direct Action Manual. The DAM presents time tested tactics as well as a plethora of innovative tools for resistance.
We’ve doubled the size of the DAM to a 300 page bound book packed with new tactics and the most up to date techniques for direct action campaigns including:
Tripods, Bipods, and Monopods
Tree Sits and Platform Rigging
Traverses Basic Single Rope Climbing
Anchoring and Rope Physics
New activists, life long rabble rousers, and those fighting for a better world will find pages full of useful tools in what will be a must have book for any direct action campaign. Please check out our Indiegogo site for more info.
We’re nearly half way to our fundraising goal and need your support to make printing this project a success. There are only 10 days left, so check sign up to get your copy today.
You can preorder your copy and get some extra thank you gifts for your early endorsement by donating today. More importantly, though, we have offered a chance for you to help us spread this knowledge. Every donation over $50 gives you the chance to send a free copy of the manual to a campaign of your choice. The more you give, the more manuals we can put in the mail.
The manual will be printed in the coming month with longtime Earth First! partner, The Gloo Factory. This community-minded, union print shop has supplied Earth First! and its affiliates with stickers and merchandise for decades and remains committed to using a high standard for recycled and reclaimed material, as well as supportive worker conditions.
The manual was first printed nearly two decades ago and has been out of print since its initial dissemination. Though many of the considerations for civil disobedience and intervention have remained tried and true, new elements have altered the ways we put these tactics into action. The Earth First! Direct Action Manual will continue the role of safe and effective actions in stopping the destruction of the planet.
