DGR UK Summer 2013 Newsletter

DGR UK Summer 2013 Newsletter
by Deep Green Resistance UK

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.

This is our web site address: http://deepgreenresistanceuk.wordpress.com/

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 Moot in August and will be leading a workshop on anti civ ideas within the environmental movement.

DGR and accusations of Transphobia
On May 11th and 12th, during the "Law and Disorder Conference" in Portland (USA),three incidents occurred concerning DGR and transgender/queer activists. You can read the DGR press release here: http://www.deepgreenresistance.org/incidents-this-weekend/.
This was followed on May 14th by a statement from Aric McBay, a co author of the book " Deep Green Resistance", describing why he left DGR, accusing it of being transphobic: http://www.aricmcbay.org/2013/05/14/dgr-and-transphobia/
The DGR response to Aric's statement can be read here: http://www.deepgreenresistance.org/reponse-to-aric-mcbay/
This had lead to a DGR press release stating that DGR is not transphobic: http://www.deepgreenresistance.org/protect-women-feminism-and-free-speech/ and a number of FAQs around Radical Feminism: http://www.deepgreenresistance.org/faq-radical-feminism/

DGR UK and its members stand behind all of these statements and the goal of ending oppression of all people and living beings by this culture, industrial civilisation.

We do not think DGR is transphobic but this perspective is not shared by everyone. So we are all learning more about radical feminism and how it links to anti civ thinking.

The DGR UK blog (http://deepgreenresistanceuk.wordpress.com/blog/) is regularly updated with articles, relevant events and actions.
