Long Island activist Connor Cash was acquitted yesterday, in a case alleging that he was a leader in an Earth Liberation Front cell, which claimed responsibility for a string of anti-sprawl arsons in 2001. The FBI has had limited success in convicting people affiliated with the group. They are now offering a $50,000 reward for information regarding two 2001 anti-genetic engineering arsons in Washington and Oregon.
