A claim of responsibility has been issued on behalf of the Earth Liberation Front whose members allegedly placed a number of firebombs in a partially constructed office building in the Northern California town of Auburn. The Earth Liberation Front is a radical environmental group who primarily commit actions in opposition to deforestation, urban sprawl, developments in, or near sensitive ecosystems, and gas guzzling sport utility vehicles. These recent actions, which did not result in any significant damage, are suspect because according to media reports they were committed as "a statement against work and the horror of the cubical." The statement to the media went on to promise "there will be at least one or more actions every few weeks."
