12 Nov

Perhaps you’ve heard of the false promise of Bright Green Technology? If you couple that with a strong dose of human-centrism, you might have something like Ecomodernism. That’s not a good thing. Deep Green Resistance co-founder Derrick Jensen explains. The idea of a ‘good, or even great, Anthropocene’ as promised in the Ecomodernist Manifesto is […]

Nature on the Rack: Will Falk on Mauna Kea

21 Jul

Please check out this passionate, eloquent essay from Deep Green Resistance member Will Falk. Will deconstructs the issues surrounding the ongoing attempts to block construction of an 18-story astronomical observatory with an Extremely Large Telescope (ELT).

More on the “Magicke” of Green Technology

19 Jul

Deep Green Resistance understands that Green Technology, Renewable Energy and other similar terms/approaches are a false promise. They will not, and can not, deliver us from the devastation that industrial civilization is wreaking on the planet.

Destroy the World… and Feel Good About It

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 […]

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.
