Lansana Toure was the original leader of the African Ecocentrist Movement. Growing up a poor farmer in Guinea, he founded the Guinean Earth Front in 2031, opposing the intervention of foreign mineral corporations during the African Resource Rush. Making popular speeches about Western greed and the environmental destruction of mining, the Front grew rapidly in popularity. Attacking mining infrastructure and recruiting new members, the Guinean Earth Front and its associated political party rose to power in Guinea in 2055.
Toure became America's most wanted criminal following the "revelation" of his supposed connection with November Horror. In 2062, Guinea was invaded and Toure was removed from power, and executed by the US military. The Guinea National Earth Militias established by his administration led the insurgency during the Guinea War.
