Publisher Description

For years, Derrick Jensen has asked his audiences, "Do you think this culture will undergo a voluntary transformation to a sane and sustainable way of life?" No one ever says yes.
Deep Green Resistance starts where the environmental movement leaves off: industrial civilization is incompatible with life. Technology can't fix it, and shopping—no matter how green—won’t stop it. To save this planet, we need a serious resistance movement that can bring down the industrial economy. Deep Green Resistance evaluates strategic options for resistance, from nonviolence to guerrilla warfare, and the conditions required for those options to be successful. It provides an exploration of organizational structures, recruitment, security, and target selection for both aboveground and underground action. Deep Green Resistance also discusses a culture of resistance and the crucial support role that it can play.
Deep Green Resistance is a plan of action for anyone determined to fight for this planet—and win.

Deep Green Resistance

Along with Endgame, volumes 1 and 2, some of the most important and illuminating books I've ever read. These books helped bring me to a Copernican realization about my place upon the Earth. They saved me from a defeated nihilism brought on by the incessant rapacity and omnicide of industrial civilization. Find a place to love. Nurture it. Cherish it. Defend it.
Infinite growth on a finite planet is the ideology of a cancer cell...and it is the ideology of industrial civilization. You can have a living planet that feeds, clothes, and heals your ills...or you can have industrial civilization, but you cannot have both. It's as simple as that.
