Civilization Claims Another Prairie Dog Colony

9 Jul

In yet another example of the insatiable thirst for death of industrial civilization, a prairie dog colony near Denver was exterminated last month. As this article in The Denver Post details, human settlements “are safer now that a prairie dog colony located near the Englewood Dam has been exterminated”. Deep Green Resistance weeps for the […]

Destroy the World… and Feel Good About It

8 Jul

Members of Deep Green Resistance identify as ‘radicals’.  That term, however, means that we identify and address the root causes of  our planet’s ecological and social injustices; it does not mean ‘extremist’. On the other hand, we know of those who are extremists. The following article, by Derrick Jensen, is reposted from Fair Observer. Destroy […]

Green Technology and Renewable Energy: The Deep Green Resistance Perspective

1 Jul

Few topics generate more commentary on our page than critiques of alternative energy. For many, solar, wind, and other non-fossil energy sources and technologies represent a pragmatic hope for saving the biosphere.

Prairie Dog Action Alert! Channel 7 News Mis-reports on Plague

25 Jun

Action Alert! Please let Channel 7 news know that their coverage of this story lacked factual information and was unacceptable. With prairie dogs disappearing across the landscape with populations at less than 1% of their historic numbers, it is more important now than ever that the truth is told and that prairie dogs are not […]

Hickenlooper: Keeping Mine Open Has ‘Nothing To Do With Climate Change’

22 Jun

In a recent interview with Colorado Public Radio, Governor Hickenlooper clumsily tap-danced around the issue of how his supposed concern with climate change might be consistent with his advocating for keeping open a coal mine in Colorado. Here’s something Deep Green Resistance saw once again about governance, in the aftermath of the Castle Rock Prairie Dog […]

Business and Government Continue Partnership to “Frack Over” Colorado

10 Jun

We don’t mean to be hyperbolic about the issue (in fact, that would be next to impossible), but the following editorial from the Boulder Daily Camera helps delineate how Colorado serves as another example of fascism. When government and industry work this closely together, there’s really no other way to describe the warm and cozy […]

Open Letter to Reclaim Environmentalism

4 Jun

Given the events of the past few months in Castle Rock (resisting the efforts of Alberta Development to slaughter prairie dogs in the name of a mall), it seems appropriate to re-post a letter by Derrick Jensen of Deep Green Resistance: Open Letter to Reclaim Environmentalism Once, the environmental movement was about protecting the natural […]

Learning to Resist: Fighting Development in Castle Rock , CO to Protect Life, Land and Prairie Habitat

27 May

by Deanna Meyer Last spring as the grasses started greening up and springing across the landscape, I joyfully drove through one of the most magnificent prairie dog colonies left along Colorado’s Front Range. Almost two hundred acres were packed full of the cozy little families all basking in the sun, rolling on the burrows, kissing and […]

Toxic vapors suspected in deaths of three Colorado oil and gas workers

19 May

Add this to the list of ‘benefits’ brought by the oil and gas industry. This article in the Denver Post illustrates somewhat vividly the extent of the toxicity of extraction, and by extension industrial civilization. The Denver Post Toxic vapors suspected in deaths of three Colorado oil and gas workers By Monte Whaley   Joe […]
