As we work to build a strategic and effective culture of resistance, we must work towards further radicalizing those who work towards social change. The People’s Climate March will attract tens of thousands of concerned individuals and is being billed as the “largest climate march in history.” But let us as radicals be clear that it is being funded by corporate money, contains no concrete demands, and will easily be utilized as a photo op by corporate green-washing. In the work of revolutionary politics, Deep Green Resistance NY will be participating in the march and the surrounding events, but let us remember the balance between being co-opted and being able to manipulate the millions of dollars for revolutionary purposes. Help us continue to build the culture of resistance that will be needed to dismantle this destructive system. There are lots of interesting events this weekend to help us mobilize such a culture. Our members will be at these events this weekend, so please look for our flyers and come introduce yourselves!
