Underground Action Calendar

Deep Green Resistance maintains an international Underground Action Calendar to publicize and normalize the use of militant and underground tactics in the fight for justice and sustainability. Below, we excerpt actions from the area covered by the UK chapter of Deep Green Resistance. Listing an action does not necessarily mean we support the goals, strategies, or tactics of those actionists.

See also our Resistance Profiles for broader information on the strategies, tactics, goals, and effectiveness of various historic and contemporary resistance groups.

If you know of a published action appropriate to add to the Calendar, contact us at undergroundpromotion@deepgreenresistance.org

NOTE: We ONLY accept communications about actions that are already publicly known in one form or another. DO NOT send original communiques directly to this email address. THIS IS NOT A SECURE MEANS OF COMMUNICATION.
