"Identified by the FBI as a terrorist group, the ALF and its sister organization, the Earth Liberation Front, claim their members committed 137 illegal eco-terror actions last year -- including 10 in California -- that caused $17.3 million in damage. The actions ranged from plastering stickers on a Los Angeles bank to setting a $5.6 million fire at the University of Washington. Just last week, ALF/ELF said members had sabotaged a biotech park under construction in Maine and set fire to a new genomics research center being built at the University of Minnesota."
