They are all domestic terrorists, groups such as ELF, PETA, et al commit crimes daily, Ever seen the Anarchists protest? They are anything but peaceful, they fill viles with unknown liquids and spray them on the police. Would you like to be sparyed with an unknown liquid? ELF has burnt down homes, PETA isn't as bad. These groups are basically criminal enterprises such as the mob, and the FBI treats them as such, as they should.
There are times it may be necessary to spy on a group, but by and large it should be avoided because it has the affect of stifling dissent in a free society. Most people are fairly nervous about getting involved in a cause, and the belief that they are being watched will only serve to discourage dissent in our society. None of those groups can be compared to the mob, though on occasion radical elements inside some of those groups have engaged in extreme or outrageous behavior. The only group in the article that I can understand getting some FBI attention is ELF, even though I have sympathy for some of their methods.
IN THE ABSENCE OF LAW AND ORDER, SOCIETY WILL SURELY DESTROY ITSELF.

Well that does explain a lot.
PFIEL, I could be wrong, but I think ELF has engaged in a number of nonviolent actions. For instance, didn't they do some tree sitting to protect trees? I'm of course against their arson and other violent attacks.
