DGR UK is a very new chapter of the Deep Green Resistance movement which started in the US in 2011 following the release of the book Deep Green Resistance: Strategy to Save the Planet by Aric McBay, Lierre Keith, and Derrick Jensen. In that short space of time DGR chapters have been initiated all over the world. DGR UK is part of that network, starting at the beginning of 2013.
The year started steadily and well with DGR UK members in attendance at at the Earth First! Winter Moot in February in Lancashire. We then had a very successful day, selling over £150 worth of DGR books at the Bristol Anarchist Bookfair in April and, the same month, attended the Extreme Energy Gathering in Manchester. Some of our members have been taking direct action against the building of Hinkley C Nuclear Power Station, in Somerset.
We will be at the Earth First Summer Gathering in August and will be leading a workshop on anti civ ideas within the environmental movement.
