A Modern Eco-Sabotage Manifesto

By Max Wilbert The woman places an arrow on her bow, draws to her cheek, and fires. The arrow arcs over a high-voltage electrical transmission line, carrying a non-conductive rope. She jogs to her arrow, and begins to reel in the rope. As she pulls it over the lines, a conductive cable is revealed to … Continue reading A Modern Eco-Sabotage Manifesto

The Legal System Will Not Save the Planet

DGR member and lawyer Will Falk explains why the legal and regulatory system is structurally incapable of defending the natural world from threats, because it was never designed to do this.

Living Underground

Sankara on the Oppression of Women

“Woman’s fate is bound up with that of the exploited male. This is a fact.

Update on Unist’ot’en Camp (Thursday AM)

Today the Coastal Gaslink company will be negotiating with the Wet’suwet’en traditional leadership. They may potentially allow workers past the barrier at Unist’ot’en Camp to conduct “pre-construction” activities.
