Time is Short: Ferguson, Missouri: Seeing Clearly

By Will Falk / Deep Green Resistance San Diego We need to be clear about what is going on in Ferguson, Missouri. Let’s pretend, just for a moment, that your people were stolen from their ancestral homes and stacked like lumber in the hulls of filthy ships to be sold half a world away. Millions … Continue reading Time is Short: Ferguson, Missouri: Seeing Clearly

Time is Short: Resistance Rewritten, Part II

By Lexy Garza and Rachel / Deep Green Resistance Humans are storytelling creatures, and our current strategy as a movement is a story, with a beginning, middle, and end.  We need to ask whether that story matches up with reality, and with the way social change has happened throughout history. So here’s the story as … Continue reading Time is Short: Resistance Rewritten, Part II

Time is Short: Resistance Rewritten, Part I

By Lexy Garza and Rachel View video of the event at the Deep Green Resistance Youtube channel Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it. This quote by Spanish writer and philosopher George Santayana was posted on the wall in my high school history classroom. The idea, as my history teacher … Continue reading Time is Short: Resistance Rewritten, Part I

Time is Short: Stop the Flows, Stop the Machine

Industrial civilization is killing the planet. It is, by its very nature, entirely dependent upon tearing & rending apart the fabric of the living world for the raw materials which sustain industrial society. As civilization fells ever more forests, blows apart ever more mountains, dams ever more rivers, vacuums ever more fisheries, drains ever more … Continue reading Time is Short: Stop the Flows, Stop the Machine

Time is Short: From Repression Comes Resistance

It’s often said that where there is oppression and brutalization, there is resistance; that resistance is fertile, and that it inevitably takes root in the cracks between the building blocks of exploitation and injustice. Even as industrial civilization drives indigenous peoples from their homelands and destroys what little remains of the living world, there is … Continue reading Time is Short: From Repression Comes Resistance

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

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

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

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
