Igniting a Revolution: Voices in Defense of the Earth


A collection of essays, writings and poetry compiled to chronicle some of the best words that inspire direct action. In Defence of the Earth hits home hard, with contributions drawn from a wide range of revolutionary movements.

SKU: AD-1441 Categories: ,


Global warming, acid rain, deforestation, air and water pollution are but a few of the overwhelming indicators that the earth’s health is worsening. For decades, environmental groups have been resisting the destructive trends set by industry and government, but as the social and political climate has changed, popular protest movements have become less and less effective. As the earth’s situation worsens, those opposing its destruction have out of necessity become increasingly militant. Corporate and federal properties have been vandalized, set ablaze-even bombed-and the government is meeting this new brand of environmental militance with an increasingly heavy hand.

Whether you’re drawn by frustration with environmental strategies that, to date, have been ineffective against this growing ecological crisis, or simply by curiosity (Who are these people? Why are they doing this? What do they hope to gain?), Igniting a Revolution offers a fascinating and compelling look at the emerging movement of revolutionary environmentalism.

Includes essays by Marilyn Buck, Robert Jensen, John Zerzan, Ashanti Alston, Jeffrey “Free” Luers, Derrick Jensen, Ann Hansen, and a preface by Bron Taylor.

Quote from a review by the ALF :
“This book is truly a stick of dynamite — or perhaps more akin to a well-placed homemade pipe bomb — designed to ignite the aspirations of people everywhere who recognize how dire of a situation we are in, while also providing analysis of the justifications and effectiveness of radical direct action in defence of ourselves and the earth.”
