Listen to Arundhati Roy, Derrick Jensen, & more and Fund the Resistance!

Link: (Part 1 of 7)

Throughout history all resistance movements have faced ruthless enemies that had unlimited resources. That’s why all resistance movements count on loyalty and material support. And, unlike the past, now everything’s at stake. We are battling those who are destroying the planet for their profit. Not all of us can participate on the frontlines. But we all can contribute at some level. 
Below is our gift to you. Listen online or download all of the speaker’s talks at this year’s Earth at Risk event, and if you feel moved to do so contribute to Fund Deep Green Resistance.

It’s time to fund the Resistance. Here’s your opportunity to support a movement that won’t stop at symbolic or direct action. Deep Green Resistance evaluates strategic options for resistance, from nonviolence to underground sabotage, and the conditions required for those options to be successful. We leave nothing off the table. DGR’s strategy will use any means necessary to stop the destruction of the planet while there is still time left. In a short time, DGR has already expanded into more than 15 chapters worldwide, and the movement is growing fast.
Deep Green Resistance has a plan of action for anyone determined to fight for this planet….and win. With your support, no matter how small the amount, you can be part of winning this fight once and for all.

On November 13th, 2011,  Earth at Risk was held in Berkeley, CA. Hundreds attended and thousands watched by livestream online. Below, you can listen to and even download these conversations between Derrick Jensen and seven important thinkers, writers, and activists who each hold an impassioned critique of this culture and who offer ideas on what can be done to build a real resistance movement.
Our planet is under serious threat from industrial civilization. Yet most activists are not considering strategies that might actually prevent the looming biotic collapse the Earth is facing. We need to deprive the rich of their ability to steal from the poor and the powerful of their ability to destroy the planet. We need a serious resistance movement that includes all levels of direct action–action that can match the scale of the problem.
