Radical environmentalists you’ve supported in the past now just a disappointment? Then consider Deep Green Resistance (DGR).

Please note, this is very important: The following blog post is not an endorsement for DGR or for tactics such as “Decisive Ecological Warfare”.

However, since so many of our coastal communities in Palm Beach County are the home base for radical environmentalist (rad enviro) cells, instead of them trying to monkeywrench local city politics and initiatives — which only drains rad enviro resources, time, money, and personnel — don’t you think the rads need to focus instead on the big issues such as western sprawl, the Ag Reserve, and rallying volunteers to help clean up the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge during this latest Federal government shutdown?

If you are a dedicated environmentalist or from the Loxahatchee Sierra Club and would like to help clean up the ARM Loxahatchee Refuge the address is 10216 Lee Rd. in suburban Boynton Beach. The easiest and most direct route from the coast is to take either Lake Worth Rd. or Boynton Beach Blvd. to State Rd. 7 (441) and head south. The refuge will be on the west side of the road.

Without further ado. . .

Are you a supporter of radical environmentalism
and looking for bold ideas?

Tired of retelling old stories of tree-sits? Public relations fiascos like a rad enviro throwing a battery into a lake? Confusing ‘musicals’ sending mixed messages too?

“Yes! It is Happening!”

Nearly three years later, what did this ‘musical’ accomplish except for a well-written account by Rachel Monroe in the Oxford American?

“Community Action Group”?

The 1960s is calling and they want their
Lake Worth hippie back.

The self-described rad enviros in Palm Beach County are a big disappointment, especially when it comes curbing or at least slowing down western sprawl. You would be hard-pressed finding any proof of their success if you read the newspaper every day. Especially the “Real Estate” section.

If you’re looking for new ideas “outside the box” then consider donating much needed funds to DGR. Consider this:

     Throughout history all resistance movements have faced ruthless enemies that had unlimited resources. And, unlike the past, now everything’s at stake.
     We are battling those who are destroying the planet for their profit, not ours. Not all of us can participate on the frontlines. Many people have important reasons to stay back – families, children, or character traits. [emphasis added]

and. . .

     We are a young organization, but we have a message that is more unique and strategic than anything else we have seen. The DGR strategy – Decisive Ecological Warfare – lays out a simple (though not easy) plan to get from here – a society based on wholesale exploitation and destruction of human communities and the natural world – to there – thousands of local communities based on respect, human rights, and balance.
     As an aboveground organization, our work is strictly nonviolent. 
     Our tasks are simple: to promote the need for an underground, to shift the culture of activism, to normalize resistance, and to build movement towards true justice, sustainability, and equality.
     Join those of us who cannot be on the front lines in supporting the struggle for life and justice. With your help, we will make this dream a reality.
