Resistance Radio - Jay Tiernan - 01.08.17

In April 1997 after only a few months of being involved in hunt sabotage and environmental activism Jay Tiernan became well known in the U.K. animal rights scene when at a demonstration against a breeder for beagle dogs for vivisection he climbed onto the roof of a building with one of those dogs (something he later went to prison for). A riot ensued and after another very violent demonstration a month later "Consort Beagle Kennels" closed down, he became heavily involved in a variety of animal liberation campaigns until summer 2000 when a fellow activist was nearly killed during a publicity stunt he’d helped organise. At that point he retired from activism, returning in the summer of 2012 to set up the campaign against the then-planned badger culls. As a spokesperson for the campaign, the bulk of his energy goes into using social media and working out creative ways to get into the mainstream media. The badger cull campaign has gone from a handful of people four years ago to now well over a hundred active people on any single night during the six week annual badger culls.

Resistance Radio - Sam Krop and Dillon Thomson - 01.01.17

Sam Krop is an environmental and social justice activist and high school teacher currently based in Eugene Oregon. Originally from Florida, Sam has been an organizer in direct action campaigns for farm worker rights, food justice and food sovereignty, forest defense, and fossil fuel resistance, and has been a public speaker at a variety of events on environmental issues and social justice activism.  Sam is also the founder of Warrior Sisters, a women's self-defense nonprofit, and like many feminists before her, recognizes that the ongoing abuse of the planet and the epidemic of violence against women share the same root in a way of life that is fundamentally unsustainable.

Dillon Thomson is co-founder and secretary of the Fertile Ground Institute, a non-profit working to build leadership and effective strategy for social and environmental justice movements.  For the past six years, Dillon's work with Fertile Ground has included providing trainings, lecturing, hosting interdisciplinary conferences, and organizing nonviolent direct actions up and down the west coast of the U.S. and Canada.  His work is motivated by a love of life and a deep rage for the cold, dispassionate killing of nonhuman communities perpetrated by the daily activities of the industrial economy.

Today we talk about stopping coal trains.

Resistance Radio - Klaas-Douwe Dijkstra - 12.25.16

Klaas-Douwe Dijkstra was born in The Netherlands but grew up in Egypt, drawing and describing his first dragonflies when he was 12 years old. Finding The Netherlands’ first Vagrant Emperor dragonfly, an African visitor, focused his passion when he was 20. He has since spent over 1000 days surveying dragonflies all over Africa and has described 78 species as new (over 10% of those known in the continent). 60 species were described in one paper in 2015 to draw attention to the lack of support for taxonomy and natural history. He authored the highly successful Field Guide to the Dragonflies of Britain and Europe (2006), The Dragonflies and Damselflies of Eastern Africa: Handbook for all Odonata from Sudan to Zimbabwe (2014), and is an honorary research associate at the Naturalis Biodiversity Center (The Netherlands) and the University of Stellenbosch (South Africa). He says, “For me, dragonflies and damselflies stand for our unconditional love of nature. They do not help to feed us like bees and fish do; they are not feared and persecuted like mosquitoes and snakes; nor are they studied as proxies of human psyche and society like ants and apes. Their beauty and sensitivity stand for the state and needs of nature before our own. We admire dragonflies purely for what they are.”
