DGR Central Valley Will Be At Sacramento Earth Day

15 Apr

DGR will be tabling at the Sacramento Earth Day Event on April 21st, from 11am to 4 pm at Southside park in downtown Sacramento.

It has been our experience in the past that Earth Day events tend to be perfect examples of the false thinking that plagues the environmental movement- touting personal choice, individual consumption, and spiritual purity as the only ways to heal our planet.

DGR:CV will be focusing its tabling on refuting these myths, expanding the converstation to actual resistance, and establishing a presence in Sacramento. Please come by, check out the booth and support our efforts!

Latest Event Announced!

11 Mar

Deep Green Resistance Central Valley is proud to announce that it will be tabling and distributing information at the upcoming Sacramento Earth Day Celebration.

On sunday, April 21st between 11am -4pm at Southside Park,  Sacramento Deep Green Resistance will be hosting an informational booth.

This free event is a great opportunity for people interested in the DGR analysis and strategy to learn more, and for us to reach concerned citizens who have not yet heard our message. Please come by and say hi, donate to support our cause, or just receive literature and learn about upcoming actions.

Earth Day events are, historically, a telling example of the gap in most peoples understanding between the severity of problems we are facing, and the proposed solutions to those problems. While DGR understands it will never be a mass movement, we feel that there is still a need to confront these fallacies and defend the imperative of resistance loudly to anyone who will listen. More information on Sacramento’s Earth Day Celebration can be found here.

This event will take place  Sunday, April 21st, 2013. Between 11am – 4pm, Southside Park, Sacramento CA

By Alex Budd/ Deep Green Resistance Redwood Coast
Resistance against exploitation is nothing new. History is full of examples of people—perfectly ordinary people—fighting back against injustice, exploitation, and the destruction of their lands and communities. They move through whatever channels for action are open to them, but often, left with no legal or political power, they turn to militant means to defend themselves.

It is hardly a simple decision, and rarely the first or preferred option, but when all other paths have been explored and found to lead nowhere, militant action becomes the only realistic route left. Movements and communities come to that truth in many different ways, but almost without fail, they come to it borne by a collective culture of resistance. One inspiring example is the Bolt Weevils.

27 Feb

by the Center for Biological Diversityfrackingprotest

SAN FRANCISCO— The Center for Biological Diversity went to court today to compel California regulators to enforce an existing state law that should protect people and the environment from hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, a rapidly spreading new method of oil and gas extraction.
