Deep Green Resistance (DGR) is a new radical movement just taking its first steps. This movement is based on the book co-authored by Derrick Jensen called Deep Green Resistance- Strategy to Save the Planet. For anyone that has been moved by Derrick or Franklin ‘s work, this is where the answers are. DGR is for the weary, the desperate, anyone who is ready to align their actions with an honest assessment of the situation we have created for ourselves. It is time for the honest and good individuals to do what is necessary in defense of the planet.
In the whole of its history, the environmental movement has not been able to stop the growth of fossil fuel consumption, slow the rate of species extinction, or end the conversion of living communities to dead commodities. The Earth is on the brink of biotic collapse. For the brokenhearted, for those who are tired of ineffective activism, for those who can’t wait anymore and for those who know the real world and are willing to do whatever it takes to protect it and restore it and ourselves – and most importantly – for those who are willing to consider a new strategy, announcing Deep Green Resistance. DGR has a plan of action for anyone determined to fight for this planet…and win.
“Most of our actions are frighteningly ineffective. Yet we keep on doing the same old symbolic actions and keep on calling the making of this or that statement a great victory.
Many activists get burned out and frustrated because they’re trying to achieve sustainability within a system that is inherently unsustainable. What would happen if we listened to such feelings of despair? Could they tell us that what were doing isn’t working, and so we should try something else?
Resist as if your life depends on it, because it does.” – Derrick Jensen
