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


Please Note: The following blog post is not an endorsement for DGR or for tactics such as “Decisive Ecological Warfare”.
     However, with many of our coastal communities in Palm Beach County home to radical environmentalist (rad enviro) cells, instead of trying to monkeywrench local city politics and initiatives (which only drains resources, money, and personnel), the rad enviros need to try and focus on the big issues such as western sprawl, the Ag Reserve, and saving the Florida Everglades.

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

Are you tired of protesters banging pots and pans, obnoxious noise-makers from the dollar store?

Tired of reading about another lawsuit that everyone knows is just a fallback and delay tactic? Money to fund these lawsuits drains resources and money that are desperately needed elsewhere.

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!”

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

“Community Action Group”?

The 1960’s 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.
