About Deep Green Resistance News Service
The Deep Green Resistance News Service is an educational wing of the DGR movement based on the DGR book. The News Service is dedicated to broadcasting news related to the ecological and social predicament, and working to encourage strategic resistance against the forces underlying it.
Day after day, our planet is being killed. Forests are cut down to make way for agriculture and biofuels. Oceans die as they are clogged with fertilizer, petroleum, plastics, mine tailings, and industrial waste. The burning of fossil fuels has induced climate change, leading to the extinction of many of our plant and animal relatives. Indigenous people are killed by the civilized in the name of progress, and their lands are stolen and destroyed for the benefit of the rich and privileged.
This devastation has only continued to accelerate. At the same time, people around the globe are standing up together in resistance, fighting for their land, for their water, for their health, for their children, for their communities, for their planet, and for justice.
This is not a pattern one can always glean from reading mainstream news sources. This is in large part because the mainstream media is controlled by many of the same corporations responsible for the problems we are facing.
The DGR News Service helps close this gap by providing news and commentary about the ecological and social disaster we have found ourselves in, and about those fighting to stop it. Our site gathers together news stories from mainstream, alternative, and activist sources; essays by writers such as Derrick Jensen, Lierre Keith, and other DGR members and allies; videos of devastation and resistance; interviews with front-line activists; book and film reviews; and articles providing background on everything from historical resistance movements to the abuses of the porn industry.
There are many strategically effective ways for us to fight back, and we choose to embrace them all. In doing so we will help foster a culture of resistance that will liberate a world put on the sacrificial altar by a cabal of power-mad psychopaths. There is a long fight ahead, and we hope that you will join with us.
