    Yes, they most definitely ARE terrorist acts. ANY violent act carried out against the public/private business in order to attempt to change political policy is an act of terrorism BY DEFINITION.

    They don't necessarily have to include injury or death to people. Putting metal spikes in trees, bombing or setting fire to animal research facilities or foresters late at night when no one is there. Sabotaging equipment. Etc..

    Yeah, I'd say it fits the definition.

    BTW - I didn't frame this as a Yes/No poll, peoples reasoning as to why they think is more important and much more instructive.

    I'd need more information than has been given so I err on the side of "Maybe. Just depends." Is "violence" violence against people, violence against property, or both?
