Humanity First is an anti-steppers political movement led by Brian Cowley.[1][2]

The Long Earth

The Humanity Firsters think "Stepping" is unnatural and an abomination and see natural steppers as mutants who will replace them like the Homo Sapiens replaced the Neanderthals.[2]

This movement gathers all kind of people who suffered from the discovery of the Long Earth like Rod Green (a phobic, left behind by his family who founded a colony in the Long Earth) or Jim Russo (who has lost fortunes because of the economical consequences of Step Day).[2]

The Firsters were responsible for the Madison bombing.[3]
