Time is Short: Militant Mining Resistance

Mining is one of the most viscerally destructive and horrific ways in which the dominant culture—industrial civilization—enacts its violence on the living world. As entirely and unequivocally destructive as this society is, few other industrial activities are as horrifically confronting as mining. Whole landscapes are cleared of life as communities—most often indigenous or poor—are forced … Continue reading Time is Short: Militant Mining Resistance

Time is Short: Nonviolence Can Work, But Not for Us

By now we should all be familiar with what’s at stake. The horrific statistics—200 species driven extinct daily, every child born with hundreds of toxic chemicals already in their bodies, every living system on the planet in decline—haunt us as we go about our work in a world that refuses to hear, listen, or act … Continue reading Time is Short: Nonviolence Can Work, But Not for Us

BREAKDOWN: A Convalescent Collapse

By Joshua Headley / Deep Green Resistance New York Talking about collapse can prove to be quite alienating. Most people quickly denounce those of us who start these dialogues as “alarmists” in an attempt to nullify all arguments and keep us safe from all evil and depressing thoughts. An obvious reason to dismiss talk of … Continue reading BREAKDOWN: A Convalescent Collapse

Time is Short: War of the Flea: A Review

As radicals, we believe that another world—a world without patriarchy, white supremacism, capitalism, colonialism, or ecocide—is possible. But in the face of the reality in which we live our day to day lives, it can become difficult to remember not only the possibility of successful resistance to power, but also its rich and proud history, … Continue reading Time is Short: War of the Flea: A Review

Beautiful Justice: An Open Letter to Liberals

By Ben Barker / Deep Green Resistance Wisconsin Do you believe in a better world? Do you believe in one without the torture of poverty and slavery; without hierarchies based on dominance; without a dying planet? If you do believe in this world, what are you willing to do to help bring it about? I … Continue reading Beautiful Justice: An Open Letter to Liberals

Time is Short: Where Do We Draw the Line? The Keystone XL Pipeline and Beyond

The Keystone XL Pipeline is without question the largest environmental issue we in North America face today. It’s not the largest in the sense that it is the most destructive, or the largest in terms of size. But it has been a definitive struggle for the movement; it has brought together a wide variety of … Continue reading Time is Short: Where Do We Draw the Line? The Keystone XL Pipeline and Beyond

Joshua Headley: Morality & (Un)sustainability

By Joshua Headley / Deep Green Resistance New York As a socially conscious person situated within the heart of global industrial civilization, I often experience, directly and indirectly, injustices on a daily basis. A week ago, the NYPD (via two plainclothes officers) murdered a 16-year-old boy, Kimani Gray, firing 11 shots – hitting him 7 … Continue reading Joshua Headley: Morality & (Un)sustainability

Max Wilbert: We Choose to Speak

By Max Wilbert / Deep Green Resistance Great Basin I’m writing this at 68 miles per hour in the left lane of I-5. The freeway is 8 lanes wide here, a laceration running north and south for 1500 miles. It is a major corridor of human trafficking. A river of oil, a friend calls it. … Continue reading Max Wilbert: We Choose to Speak

Time is Short: Questions Overdue

Environmentalists today have our work cut out for us. Caught between the urgency of the ecological crises and reactionary capitalist forces that continue to push (quite successfully) for ever more outrageous and egregious destruction, finding an effective and timely path forward is no easy task. There are a wide variety of strategies for change vying … Continue reading Time is Short: Questions Overdue
