Deep Green Resistance UK

Welcome to the website of Deep Green Resistance UK (DGR-UK).

Deep Green Resistance (DGR) is a strategy to save the planet, based on an analysis of civilisation that sees it as inherently destructive. DGR-UK is part of a growing movement that sees the need for both a robust and visible culture of resistance and an active underground that together restrict the ability of civilisation to further damage our world.

We promote the need for an active underground because all other avenues to stop the destruction of our beautiful, wondrous planet have been tried and they’ve not worked. The speed of the destruction of the biosphere by industrial civilisation is increasing and will not stop until all the resources have been fought over and used up or it is stopped by force.

We support non-violent direct action against civilisation but do not believe that this is enough to tackle the scale of the problem in the very limited amount of time we have left. This short video from sums it up:

Let’s not delude ourselves – it is a very late hour for the planet. Whatever is coming, we need to face the painful facts of our situation so that we can take effective action. The DGR movement is gathering pace worldwide – if you are committed to the strategies laid out in the book Deep Green Resistance: Strategy to Save the Planet, please join us.

We welcome people of all backgrounds who agree with the following:
