Deep Green Resistance Great Basin Chapter
We are the chapter of the Deep Green Resistance movement covering Western Utah, Nevada, SE Oregon, the Mojave desert, and the eastern slopes of the Sierra Mountains. These are the occupied lands of many peoples including Goshute, Shoshone, Paiute, Chemehuevi, Serrano, Kamia, and Cahuilla nations. We work to oppose this industrialized, capitalistic, white supremacist, patriarchal civilization and all of its manifestations in this beautiful land.
Stand with us to protect the land. We are involved in various struggles of land defense and social justice in the region and around the world.
What is Deep Green Resistance?
Deep Green Resistance is an analysis, a strategy, and a movement being born — the only movement of its kind.
As an analysis, it reveals the last 10,000 years of human history–the rise and dominance of civilization–as the culture of death that is now threatening every living being on Earth.
As a strategy, it critiques ineffective lifestyle actions and explains their inevitable failure to stop the destruction of people, species, and the planet. In contrast, DGR offers a concrete plan for how to stop that destruction.
As an aboveground movement, just now taking its first steps, Deep Green Resistance is based on this analysis and implementing this strategy. And we’re recruiting.
The goal of DGR is to deprive the rich of their ability to steal from the poor and the powerful of their ability to destroy the planet. This will require defending and rebuilding just and sustainable human communities nestled inside repaired and restored landbases. This is a vast undertaking but it needs to be said: it can be done. Industrial civilization can be stopped.
