New Belgium logoIt looks like supporting an eco-terrorist organization is not terribly popular after all.  After Craig, Colorado businesses started a boycott of New Belgium Brewery for its support of Wild Earth Guardians, an ecoterrorism group hell-bent on closing down the Colowyo Mine that employed over 200 Craig residents, Craig resident Jayne Morley took matters into her own hands and contacted the businesses that support Wild Earth Guardians.

As Morley told the Craig Free Press, “You don’t mess with my community. This valley has a special place in my heart.”

A funny thing happened as Morley started to to contact these companies and organizations to tell them that she would no longer support them. Not only did the vast majority of the organizations – over 454 of 605 – drop their support and ask to be removed from the Wild Earth Guardians website, it appears as though Wild Earth Guardians lied about who was actually supporting them.  Some of these organizations actually had no clue that Wild Earth Guardians claimed them as supporters.

Take this exchange with the Denver Botanic Gardens as conveyed to the Craig Daily Press:

Morley emailed the Denver Botanic Gardens on June 9, stating that she will never visit the business again due to its name being on the list.

Denver Botanic Gardens Director of Marketing and PR Jennifer Riley-Chetwynd responded, stating “we have no affiliation with this organization.”

“I’d appreciate your letting me know what relationship you had heard about between the Gardens and WildEarth Guardians. I was not familiar with them prior to your email, but having consulted with our leadership team, we do not collaborate with them,” Riley-Chetwynd wrote in an email.

As for the remaining 150 or so supporting organizations, we have provided a list, which ironically includes the Mining Exchange Hotel, for your convenience taken from the Wild Earth Guardians website. Not only should these organizations not support an eco-terrorist organization, but they should support the economic prosperity of Craig, Colorado. Feel free to boycott these organizations as well.
