Last week we held a contest for our readers, and challenged them to share the reasons why they resist.
Our winners are Elizabeth Alex Stevenson, Diren Dominic, Peter Doerfer, Dill Emma, and Majadi Baruti, with honorable mention to our own Rachel Ivy.
These winners will each receive a free copy of the book, Deep Green Resistance.
Elizabeth Alex Stevenson: I am a Deep Green Resister because I’m tired of the human centric attitude of entitlement. We’re dependent on the Earth and Mother Nature, not the other way around. This page works tirelessly to open the minds of resisters everywhere and let them know we’re all in this together. We must come together and stop the rampant warfare against race, class, and nature that society continues to perpetrate. At this point society will kill every living thing on this planet if allowed. As a Deep Green Resister I will stand with my fellows to stop the destruction and to spread truth to the masses.
Rachel Ivy: I am a Deep Green Resister because a movement that does not hear or heed the voices of women is not a movement for justice.
Diren Dominic: I am a Deep Green Resister because I believe that it is our responsibility to ensure that current and future generations, of all living beings, have access to the essential, unpolluted necessities of life.
Dill Emma: I am a Deep Green Resister because I see Trees before Wood .
Peter Doerfer: I am a Deep Green Resister because it is what we must do. Our home is sacred and it is being damaged and desecrated and becoming full with delusion. Earth lives and we live with it; It must be saved from from all our destruction. Our children will have children, and they will have children, their children will also have children. Our great grand children will have great grand children, and us, their future ancestors at this serious turning point, should care to preserve the one thing that we have in common. Life on Earth, so that we shall not have to suffer and die, so soon.
Majadi Baruti: I am a Deep Green Resister because Resistance is Love, and I am a lover and a fighter! http://ift.tt/1rMRaQb
