Michael Sykes - North America

Michael is an 18-year-old anarchist from
Lambertville, MI, currently serving a prison
sentence for eco-related acts of property
destruction, committed while he was a minor. He
was convicted of setting fire to two homes under
construction, and accused of attempting to cut
down a utility pole, burning down other homes
under construction, and setting fire to a Kroger’s
semi-trailer. He was tried as an adult and is
currently serving a 4-10 year prison sentence with
somewhere between $200,000 and $400,000 in
restitution. While Michael was 17 at the time of
the alleged crimes, he was tried as an adult. His
motivation was to interfere with sprawl, because
he “was tired of seeing all the forest being
destroyed.”
