Underground Action Calendar

The Underground Action Calendar exists to publicize and normalize the use of militant and underground tactics in the fight for justice and sustainability. We include below a wide variety of actions from struggles around the world, especially those in which militants target infrastructure, because we believe this sort of action is necessary to dismantle civilization. Listing an action does not necessarily mean we support or stand behind the goals, strategies, or tactics of those actionists.

This page highlights specific actions. See also our Resistance Profiles for broader information on the strategies, tactics, goals, and effectiveness of various historic and contemporary resistance groups.

If you know of a published action appropriate to add to the Calendar, contact us at undergroundpromotion@deepgreenresistance.org

NOTE: We ONLY accept communications about actions that are already publicly known in one form or another. DO NOT send original communiques directly to this email address. THIS IS NOT A SECURE MEANS OF COMMUNICATION.

18 thoughts on “Underground Action Calendar”

  1. I wish that positive action would be taken to replace the polluting sources of energy. About 35 years ago I saw a functional unit that took the sewer waste and turned it into energy. The byproducts we sterile compost and sterile distilled water and a very small amount of oxygen. Only the waste from two homes went into it and it produced enough electricity to amply supply seven homes. Would this not be a kinder to the Earth way to make electricity? The compost was wonderful, smelled like pine forest duff, very clean and was great for growing plants.

    1. I agree, it’s probably the hocus pocus around bird deaths and noise pollution. More birds die by flying into domestic windows by some huge order of magnitude yet you don’t see them boarding up windows.

  2. DGR includes acts by CIA-sponsored pseudo-rebels in Syria as part of this list. DGR talks a good game about “feminism.” What will Syria look like under the CIA-back Jihadis and the Shria order they hope to impose on Syria. Assad’s regime is nothing to admire, but its fall will only aid the forces of reaction in the region. It will shift the balance of power in the region to the Gulf states and Israel, away from Hezbollah and Iran. As the imperialists are supporting the so-called “rebels” so too is DGR. Lenin taught that the first duty of a revolutionary in an imperialist country is to oppose their own empire. For all the criticism DGR has received over its trans comments, the support for the imperialist conspiracy against Syria is far more offensive.

    1. Hi Jazzer,

      Thanks for reading and commenting. The purpose of the Underground Action Calendar is to publicize and normalize the use of militant actions & sabotage in resistance efforts, not to promote the ideology or goals of those who carry them out. The actions included in the Calendar come from a wide spectrum of political movements, and by no means do they all match DGR’s perspective or goals. What they have in common is the use of underground resistance, mostly against industrial infrastructure; DGR believes that without the application of that force resistance will never be successful, and that’s why these actions are included here–to promote and normalize that kind of resistance.

      If you familiarize yourself with the ideology and work of DGR, it should be unequivocally clear that DGR is resolutely anti-imperialist. Aside from including that one action on this list, where has DGR ever expressed support for the anti-Assad rebels in Syria? I think it’s a big leap to say including that one action is equivalent to supporting “imperialist conspiracy”.

  3. Less humans=more NATURE and more Living World and more birds, animals etc.

    The ultimate Green action is refusing to have children and for women to control their fertility SAFELY and PRIVATELY even where this is forbidden.

    It’s time for women to TAKE back our reproductive rights!

    In this time of backlash against women’s reproductive rights, it’s necessary to reclaim our ability to control our own bodies without having to ask permission in governmental and religious arenas controlled by men! Please post and share this with at least 3 women and it will go viral!

    Menstrual extraction (ME) is a process by which menstrual blood is removed from the uterus using an airtight, hand-operated suction device to eliminate inconveniently-timed periods (in cases of going camping, athletic events, etc.

    It can also be used for low-risk early abortions (up to 7 weeks) without anesthetics and a greatly decreased risk of infection. It removes the fertilized egg soon after the first missed period.
    ME is often an outpatient procedure, sometimes performed at home by a trained medical professional. Most patients said it’s far more comfortable and less painful than standard abortion procedure.

    The most common device used is called a Del-Em. The cannula is inserted into the uterus through the undilated cervix. A syringe, with a one-way bypass valve prevents air from entering the uterus, which can be fatal. It creates the suction necessary to evacuate the interior of the uterus. The material collects in an airtight glass jar.

    In a very few cases, a second extraction process must be performed if the abortion was not completed the first time. The procedure should be performed by a trained medical professional. However, with proper training, women who aren’t medical professionals can also be taught to safely perform ME in self-help groups. ME should never be attempted alone. Materials used to construct a Del-Em device are easily obtainable through a laboratory or chemistry scientific catalogue or are common items (a jar, aquarium tubing, etc)

    Resources
    http://www.sisterzeus.com Sister Zeus’ site is a HUGE resource for women’s reproductive rights and health issues. To find a self-help group of women trained to safely do ME, Sister Zeus suggests checking with midwives, feminist health centers, fertility counselors and local feminists. Finding a self-help group is difficult since ME is barely legal since ME can be used when not pregnant. Groups may be found by word of mouth
    Sister Zeus will help you find women in your area to start a self-help group and learn safe ME. http://www.sisterzeus.com/StateList.html

It includes a list of books about abortion herbs (Misuse of herbs can be dangerous so always consult a sympathetic midwife-herbalist), how to safely perform ME, (safe up to 7 weeks into pregnancy) and how to make a Del-Em device from cheap common items.

    IMPORTANT NOTE! There are three mistakes (on pages 116, 142 and 241) that say “TWO way bypass valve” As can be seen on the diagram on p 143, it’s a ONE way bypass valve)!

    1. “The ultimate Green action is refusing to have children”

      Even if I’m not sure if it is the ultimate green action its sure not a burden to life and planet to stay away from having children, so you def rise a good point.

  4. Great to see another useful direct action news cite from DGR… not unlike NAALPO or Bite Back.. but I do agree with some of the above comments that the selection of actions to report is important.. While there are issues with wind turbines, and renewable energy for the purpose is delivering power to industry is a major issue, small-scale wind can be a much less destructive and self-determined form of energy.. and should not be a priority in DEW.. I also question the posting of the grid sabotage in Syria.. if you report this then why not report all the other hundreds of acts of war that any militant group carries out on infrastructure? Thanks for what you do!

  5. This kind of news emboldens the environmental movement’s nonviolent work while also nurturing the possibility of a smart & effective underground – thank you! (Love the sidebar at the right with all those great links). For serious scholars and activists, this page has a ton of great reading.

    “What they have in common is the use of underground resistance, mostly against industrial infrastructure; DGR believes that without the application of that force resistance will never be successful, and that’s why these actions are included here–to promote and normalize that kind of resistance.”

    Regarding, “February 25, 2015, Flagstaff, AZ, fiber-optic line severed that supplied phones, TV and Internet to much of northern AZ (roughly Phoenix to Flagstaff) “, How does cutting off the internet help people organise resistance?
    The internet is the one tool we have going for us, in terms of having access to information that has been traditionally kept to the ruling classes (of wealth, race and gender).
    This isn’t an attack, but a genuine question. How can you justify destroying the means of self-education to millions of people as a general positive force?

    I think maybe you hoped for an industrial impact, where it is the industrial sector which will most easily find alternative means to accessing the internet, and the average person who will be left unable to function in this modern world.

    Use industrial-targeting viruses like stuxnet or something.

    1. Yes I agree, attacking the Internet is the wrong target. Without information there will be no revolution. Let’s go after those corporations that are doing the most damage to the planet and to life.

      1. Internet seems to rather have the effect that more and more people becomes less into actual action and more to sit and waste time on the internet.
        But for now maybe Internet is not the most important thing to take down but if someone would manage I would not mind that much.

        1. Agreed. We should keep in mind that the internet is first and foremost a tool for corporations (and the governments which serve them) to expedite extraction of resources and “production.” Secondly, it’s become another means to pacify the mass. Only a small number of people use the internet to organize for resistance.

          All that said, there probably are more critical targets which are just as vulnerable. The most effective reason to target telecommunications is probably in conjunction with another attack, like when the shooters at the Metcalf substation first cut the cables to prevent 911 calls from being placed.

  7. Sabotage is good. The sabotage is in it’s infancy stage. There Should be a thousand % more and a thousand % more devastating sabotage. After all, humanity is up against the most dangerous and the most sophisticated, 100% corrupt, Authoritarian/Totalitarian, Police-State in the history of the world. There should be a thousand police officers killed daily across the nation; four to ten major bridges blown up weekly across the nation, etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc.,…………….
