Resistance Movement Profiles


Building a successful culture of resistance to address modern environmental and social justice crises requires that we learn what has and hasn’t worked for other groups. The Resistance Profiles below provide an introduction, with references to further resources, to different approaches of many resistance group of the past and present, with a wide range of goals, strategies, tactics, ways of organizing and effectiveness.

To understand the difference between strategy and tactics, please read the Strategic Resistance excerpt from the Deep Green Resistance book. We’ve chosen the examples below for their illustrative and educational value. Inclusion of a group or campaign does not imply endorsement by Deep Green Resistance of their goals, strategies or tactics.

If you know of groups that we do not currently have a profile for, or want to suggest additional information or corrections for an existing profile, please email us at

NOTE: We ONLY accept communications about groups or actions that are already publicly known. DO NOT send communiques directly to this email address. THIS IS NOT A SECURE MEANS OF COMMUNICATION. This is for the safety of all parties. This page is for RE-PUBLISHING information that is already in the public domain.
