Deep Green Resistance Chicago Seeking Activists.

You can make resistance a reality by volunteering your time and talents with Deep Green Resistance Chicago.

Work locally to foster above ground resistance to a culture that is sociopathic in its on-going war against all life on Earth.

Use your unique gifts to engage with others to help build a society that is both just and sustainable. Please know that sustainable is not a catchword in Deep Green Resistance. Sustainable is a word that describes specific practices that heal the planet – not a marketing tool that puts a green coat of paint on a biohazard.

Deep Green Resistance Chicago has projects that require the assistance of volunteers. If you are an activist, or would like to become active in defending what is left of our living planet, we want to work with you! Whatever your strengths, we need your help. And, we need it NOW!

Step up now. Learn more at the next Deep Green Resistance 101 on July 29, and email us at chicago@deepgreenresistance.org

“The Battle of White Clay” Film Screening, fundraiser for upcoming action (6/2)

Our friends in Wisconsin are preparing for an action in solidarity Lakota peoples.

Please join them if you are in the area.  Please see below

__________________

Join Deep Green Resistance Wisconsin at the Peace Action Center on Saturday, June 2nd for a film screening of The Battle for Whiteclay and a presentation about an upcoming action in solidarity with Lakota peoples against the ongoing genocide facing Native Americans. The event will start at 5:00 PM at 1001 E. Keefe Ave. in Milwaukee, WI.

The State of Nebraska’s refusal to halt alcohol sales to the dry Pine Ridge Indian Reservation from its border town of White Clay gets an in-depth look in this new documentary about a century-old problem. Four off-sale liquor stores in this 14-person hamlet sell over 12,000 cans of beer a day to an Indigenous clientele with virtually no legal place to drink it. Struggling with crippling poverty and epidemic alcohol abuse that afflicts 4 out of 5 families, the Oglala Sioux Tribe has for decades banned the sale and possession of alcohol on their reservation.

On June 9th, 2012, Lakota people of the Pine Ridge Reservation will march for justice against the genocide committed by the opportunistic alcohol dealers in White Clay. A caravan will be leaving from Wisconsin on June 7th to join them, and other members of Deep Green Resistance, in the struggle. To help make this action successful, we are calling for allies willing to come to the action in solidarity, or support the effort materially. If this speaks to you, please attend this event to learn more about the battle for White Clay and how you can help in this fight for justice.
