Are Greenpeace's stunts outrageous or essential?

The Alberta Environment Network consists of a wide variety of environmental non-governmental organizations — from large national organizations to small grassroots groups. AEN members employ a variety of tactics to achieve their environmental goals. Amongst the most controversial, are the direct action and civil disobedience tactics employed by Greenpeace in their oil sands campaign.

David Berry's piece in Alberta Views — The Disobedient Albertans — examines Greenpeace's tactics in Alberta, including the perspectives of a couple other AEN member groups.

Derrick Jensen's Deep Green Resistance Training — Deadline Extended

Mar 26 2010 (All day) - Mar 28 2010 (All day)

Great News! Deep Green Resistance Training Deadline Extended to March 24!

Due to the importance of having this training in Alberta, the organizers - Aric McBay, Lierre Keith, and Derrick Jensen, have decided to remove the cap on the number of participants allowed to attend. The deadline for registrations is now March 24th. Please pass on to folks who might be interested!

Derrick Jensen's Deep Green Resistance Training — Register Now!

Derrick Jensen and rad co-facilitating friends are likely gonna be coming to Edmonton on March 26-28 to do a 3-day intensive workshop called Deep Green Resistance. This 3-day workshop is particularly relevant to those of us who have been resisting the industrial developments of more tar sands, nuclear power and other environmental destructive projects. By bringing this conference to the prairies we will be building on the grassroots community that is already coming together, building on our network and strengthening our skills to bring about the changes we need to see.

The Deep Green Resistance training is a three-day workshop for activists, changemakers, and other concerned or inspired folks who are interested in delving into some critical reflection on the state of the world and our role in fixing it. We live in the most destructive culture to ever exist. Yet does our activism reflect that? If we really accept the seriousness of the situation, what would that mean for our strategy and tactics? How do we build up a culture of resistance? These are some of the questions that will be explored over the weekend, while we build on our skills to continue doing good works. Read more »
