Deep Green Resistance

Deep Green Resistance believes our current civilization needs to be dismantled and replaced by thousands of cultures that are fully integrated into their local ecosystems. Deep Green Resistance has a plan of action for anyone determined to fight for this planet—and win.

We are focused on our work: building a culture of resistance and working to foster a militant resistance movement strong and savvy enough to dismantle industrial civilization.

Get in touch if you are sick of the BS and want to get this done.

Radical anti-racism work is a fundamental part of Deep Green Resistance. Race, as a socially constructed hierarchy based on the reality of skin color, is similar to Gender oppression - a socially constructed hierarchy based on the reality of sex differences.

For whites and other light-skinned dominant peoples, understanding the realities of institutional racism and deeply ingrained prejudice is the first step towards standing in solidarity with people of color and helping deconstruct racism.

For dark skinned people and other people of color, understanding the nuances of how racism functions and defeating internalized oppression is a critical effort in resistance to white supremacy.

Militarism is a feminist issue. Rape is an environmental issue. Environmental destruction is a peace issue.

Go swift foxes in Fort McMurray, Alberta!

Shell Canada says the Canadian Swift Fox that has “crapped all over the place” in one of their tar sands workers’ lunch rooms 9 times is “a little shit.” “Look. I like wild animals as much as the next guy but this one fox seems to be on an eco-terrorism mission or something,” Buck Carter, Production Manager at Shell’s sprawling Albion surface mining operation, told CBC early today.
“He’s putting the guys off their food!”

Meanwhile, Canadian scientist and environmentalist Dr. David Suzuki says he likes the fox’s style.

The Swift Fox has somehow been getting into the cafeteria-style lunch room every night and having “unpleasant-smelling” bowel movements on countertops, tables and in the metal serving trays used for hot meals. S/he has not eaten any of the “baited food” left out and has done no other damage beyond leaving small piles of feces behind, quickly turning him or her into a local and social media s/hero.

Fort McMurray is the site of the petrochemical industry’s Canadian Tar Sands extraction (similar sites exist in the U.S. as well), which involves degradation and killing of an area of land the size of the state of New York. Canadian musician Neil Young, who has visited the Alberta Tar Sands site has described its horrors as being like Hiroshima after the bomb.

Deep Green Resistance is organizing in solidarity with the living earth and all foxes. We also stand in solidarity with indigenous peoples who are the original human inhabitants of this land, and who are currently at the front lines of resistance against industrial ecocide.

In this real-life model of forest resilience and regeneration, Professor Suzanne Simard (University of British Columbia) shows that all trees in a forest ecosystem are interconnected living communities - a lot like how our brains work. The largest, oldest, “mother trees” serve as hubs for the underground exchange of nutrients increases the survival of younger trees linked into the network of old trees. This means that in a forest, 1+1 equals more than 2.

Conventional, timber-industry dictated “Forest Service” philosophy has instead been about ignoring the forest’s interconnectedness and life-giving source, seeking “manage” forests as objectified “resources” in alliance with the timber industry - rather than steward, or protect, forests in alliance with the living planet and the biosphere that supports all life.

When studying and pondering and protecting the forest, we find many metaphors that speak to community resilience, and the importance of both aboveground and underground. These metaphors apply to the reality of resistance. For more on this, read the book Deep Green Resistance, and consider joining us in fighting to protect what remains of the forests, grasslands, oceans, and air.

in America, (a land founded on cultural genocide of its native peoples) the dominant culture and legal system regard corporations as persons. Now, a Canadian woman named Katherine Sinclair wants Lake Winnipeg to be recognized as a person:

“‘The lake has a spirit. The lake has a spirit just as you have a spirit. It is alive. It has life. Everything has life and she needs to be protected. Obviously, right now she hasn’t been.”

Sinclair says she came up with the plan after reading that the lake was nominated as one of the most threatened lakes in the world.

Deep Green Resistance has Canadian members east to west and we are organizing in solidarity with the living earth and indigenous peoples. Calling all Canucks, join us as a volunteer or formal member! http://ift.tt/15Dit6r

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.The winds will blow their own freshness into you… while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.
~ John Muir

When civilization ends, the living world will rejoice. We must be biophilic people in order to survive. Those of us who have forgotten how must learn again to live with the land and air and water and creatures around us in communities built on respect and thanksgiving.

Right now, industrial civilization is killing all life on our planet, driving to extinction 200 species per day - and it won’t stop voluntarily.  98% of old-growth forests have been murdered for civilization’s insatiable need for land and “resources.”  Global warming is happening now, at an astounding speed. The only honest solution is to stop industrial civilization from burning fossil fuels.

Most consumption is based on violence against people (human and non-human) and on degrading landbases across the planet.  Life on Earth is more important than this insane, temporary culture based on hyper-exploitation of finite resources. This culture needs to be destroyed before it consumes all life on this planet.

Humanity is not the same as civilization. Humans have developed many sane and sustainable cultures, themselves at risk from civilization. 

Most people know this culture is insane and needs radical change, but don’t see any way to bring the change about.  Unlike most environmental and social justice organizations, Deep Green Resistance questions the existence and necessity of civilization itself.   Our 100% volunteer-run movement offers organized, reliable ways to promote sane ways of living and surviving the ongoing crisis.  And we have a realistic plan to stop the insanity, this strategy is called Decisive Ecological Warfare.

"90 percent of water consumption is due to irrigation for farming purposes. Only the comparatively small remainder is used for potable water and industrial production. As an example, 40 percent of the cereals produced around the world is irrigated. However, in many cases this results in increased scarcity of water resources and puts a burden on ecosystems. In dry regions, the amount taken from groundwater reservoirs can easily exceed the amount being replenished, so that the groundwater reservoir is overused and depleted."

This is what civilization does, it ruthlessly exploits people and extracts resources regardless of the consequences.

"Israel’s defense minister is on record confirming that military plans to uproot Hamas’ are about securing control of Gaza’s gas reserves.
The conquest of Gaza is accelerating.” -article 1.) below

In response to Israel’s oppressive control of the Gaza for resource grabbing, some activists have taken on acts of resistance against the West Bank Electrical infrastructure. It is with great courage that these activists resist their oppressors.

Their actions are an example of DGR’s Strategy using tactics.
“Tactics,… are short-term, smaller-scale actions; they are particular acts which put strategies into effect. If the strategy is sys­tematic bombing, the tactic might be an Allied bombing flight to target a particular factory. The civil rights boycott strategy employed tactics such as pickets and protests at particular stores. The suffragists met their strategic goal by planning small-scale arson attacks on particular buildings. Successful tactics are tailored to fit particular situations, and they match the people and resources available.”-article 2.) below
