Operational Security 101 for Activists and Revolutionaries

     by Max Wilbert / Deep Green Resistance Those in power do not hesitate to assault, imprison, torture, and sometimes murder those who fight capitalism, patriarchy, racism, the murder of the planet, and other elements of global empire.

You cannot be yourself; you must fully inhabit whatever role you have assumed… The key to being underground is to be invisible. Just as there is a way to walk in … Continue reading Living Underground

Political Education 101

     by Boris Forkel / Deep Green Resistance Germany The idea for this article came to me when I heard a man say at a demonstration that he was confused because he didn’t know if he was “right” or “left”.

Desalination and the SNWA Water Grab

It should be clear by now that the SNWA water grab is a vampire project. Just when you think it is dead, it comes back again.

Political Education for the Poor – An Advocacy for a New Political Awareness

Coming to a political consciousness is not a painless task. To overcome denial means facing the everyday, normative cruelty of a whole society, a society made up of millions of people who are participating in that cruelty, and if not directly, then as bystanders with benefits.
