As the destruction of the planet continues, we need to begin organizing and building resistance to match the scale of the problem.
This is the first meet-up for Deep Green Resistance Wisconsin. On this day we will, together, discuss and chart a course of action for our group. If you are involved with DGR, or interested or considering becoming involved, please join us for this meet-up.
Discussion points include:
- Roles to match each of our gifts
- Promotional materials and tabling for DGR Wisconsin
- State-wide campaigns
- group structure
- Future event ideas: Hosting a weekend-long DGR conference; END:CIV film screenings; webcam conferences with Aric, Lierre, or Derrick; DGR book discussion clubs; landbase defense and restoration; any points you who are attending would like to bring up.
Please read these important DGR documents before coming:
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.

Writer and activist Derrick Jensen has been discussing the inherent destructiveness of industrial civilization and urgently calling for resistance against it for decades. 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.
