Derrick Jensen is an award-winning author and has been described as “the
poet-philosopher of the ecological movement.” Derrick has written for
Orion, Audubon, and The Sun Magazine, among many others. His most recent
book, The Myth of Human Supremacy, debunks the near-universal belief in
a hierarchy of nature and the superiority of humans. Derrick’s radio
program, Resistance Radio, features some of the most visionary
activists, authors, and others such as Chris Hedges, Ann Jones,
Jeannette Armstrong, Tom Butler, Kathleen Dean Moore, Mike Mease, and
more. He has also written 20 books about stopping this culture from
killing the planet.
Mainstream environmentalism has not been effective in stopping fossil
fuels or any other extractive industries. Despite over 50 years of
environmental activism in this country, we are experiencing the sixth
mass extinction, global climate change, widespread pollution, total
ocean acidification, and more–all directly caused by human activity. In
a situation of life and death, shouldn’t we do everything we can to
survive? Come learn about our analysis, strategy, and tactics for
stopping the destruction and exploitation of life on Earth.
This event is free and open to the public.
