If you care about life on this planet, and if you believe this culture won’t voluntarily cease to destroy it, how does that belief affect your methods of resistance?
Keeping questions like these in mind, we will, as a group, chart a course of action for the future.
At this meet-up, we’ll continue our conversation about organizing events, campaigns, and actions to stop civilization from killing the planet, and how to create the organized resistance movement necessary to be effective.
If you are involved with DGR, considering becoming involved, or just interested, please join us for this meet-up.

Deep Green Resistance Wisconsin is hosting an “Introduction to Deep Green Resistance” event to introduce the community to their grassroots environmental movement.

DGR analyzes previous resistance movements throughout history, and offers a concrete method for how to stop the destruction caused by industrial civilization. Join members of the Wisconsin chapter of the Deep Green Resistance movement as we outline our plan of action, and offer a question and answer session to follow.

Derrick is the acclaimed author of fifteen books, including A Language Older Than Words, The Culture of Make Believe, Endgame, and Deep Green Resistance, a book, co-authored with Lierre Keith and Aric McBay, which inspired the formation of a movement by the same name. Author, teacher, activist, small farmer and leading voice of uncompromising dissent, he has been hailed as the philosopher poet of the environmental movement.

Indigenous activists and their allies are hitting the road in an effort to bring knowledge to the people. The tour’s Wisconsin stop will feature speaking and music aimed at telling the truth about this invader culture and its wholesale destruction of Mother Earth. In the end, it will ask those in the audience if they will warrior up and fight back for Mother Earth. It will do this through speeches by people who are on the ground already fighting back and with Hip Hop music that promotes the same message.
The Warrior Up Resistance Tour features a variety of activists and artists. Included is the radical indigenous music group Savage Family, Lakota activist Olowan Martinez, Coastal Salish activist Queen Sascheen, and Deep Green Resistance member and Latino activist T.R. McKenzie.
