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

Time is Short: The Bolt Weevils and the Simplicity of Sabotage

Resistance against exploitation is nothing new. History is full of examples of people—perfectly ordinary people—fighting back against injustice, exploitation, and the destruction of their lands and communities. They move through whatever channels for action are open to them, but often, left with no legal or political power, they turn to militant means to defend themselves. … Continue reading Time is Short: The Bolt Weevils and the Simplicity of Sabotage

Time is Short: Misdirection & Target Selection, Part 2

In our last bulletin, Time is Short presented an overview of the need for strategic target selection.

Identifying and striking at key targets is necessary for any social change movement to be successful, … Continue reading Time is Short: Misdirection & Target Selection, Part 2

Time is Short: Misdirection & Target Selection, Part 1

By Alex Rose / Deep Green Resistance Colorado We’re up against a lot. With hundreds of species going extinct every day, with the oceans being vacuumed of life, with the last vestiges of wild forests being felled or burned and the heart of the planet being torn up to poison the air, civilization is driving … Continue reading Time is Short: Misdirection & Target Selection, Part 1

Time is Short: No Time for Attrition

Within the radical environmental movement, it is widely acknowledged and rightly accepted that we have little time left before the earth is driven into catastrophic and runaway biotic collapse. We know that civilization is predicated on the slow dismemberment of the planet’s life support systems—a dismemberment that is increasing in speed as more efficient and … Continue reading Time is Short: No Time for Attrition

Time is Short: Every Day, All Around the World

Wherever there has been oppression, there has been resistance. Despite the narratives that are drilled and forced into our heads—narratives of the exceptionality and futility of resistance—the history of civilization is chalk full of individuals, groups, movements that stood in the face of subjugation and cruelty to fight for a better world. This is as … Continue reading Time is Short: Every Day, All Around the World

Time is Short: Twenty Years of Sabotage & Agenda 21

It is important to note that this analysis and perspective is not meant to be authoritative on, nor instructive towards the objectives, organization and operation of Agenda 21; those are always their own to determine, as they see fit. This is definitively an outsider’s perspective, gleaned from publicly available information, and is undoubtedly lacking insight … Continue reading Time is Short: Twenty Years of Sabotage & Agenda 21

Time is Short: Principles of War and Strategy

Why are we losing? Why, after 40 years of struggle, education, petitions, letters to the editor, reusable coffee mugs, marches, protests, direct action and even sabotage, are we still losing?  Why do mountains, old growth and glaciers keep disappearing? Why are children born with 200 toxic compounds in their bodies? Why do the levels of … Continue reading Time is Short: Principles of War and Strategy
