Elle Magazine Green Issue Getting Punked By Eco-Terrorists?

The current article you are reading does not reflect the views of the current editors and contributors of the new Ecorazzi

We have very little information regarding who is behind the hoax, but apparently “Retraction” stickers have been showing up in Elle Magazine’s green issue. They declare a statement related to an article on a group of supposed eco-terrorists. Here’s what the stickers say,

“Following consultation with federal agencies, we at Elle wish to retract this article. Not because of the stream of factual inaccuracies beginning in the second sentence (there has never been a CrimethInc. convergence in Athens, Georgia), but because in the current political climate it is irresponsible to even pretend to give a fair hearing to radical anti-capitalists. Even if Anna’s story is a cut-and-dried case of entrapment, we have to understand this as a necessary defense of our free market freedoms. Not to say that we are not concerned about the environment at Elle. On the contrary, the global environmental crisis offers unprecedented opportunities to promote sustainable fashions (p. 98), give the meat industry a makeover (p. 245), and renew faith in this country’s discredited electoral process (p. 104); even the color green itself is making a comeback (p. 72). Consumer capitalism may be threatening life on earth, but there’s simply no other option—that is, not unless you’re willing to join the ranks of the eco-terrorists.”

These stickers have been found in every issue in at least one bookstore. Anyone else encountered them?
