By examining the modern culture of industrial civilisation and the persistent widespread violence and environmental exploitation it requires, END:CIV details the resulting epidemic of poisoned landscapes and shell-shocked nations, while further delving into the history of resistance and the prospect of fighting back against such abuse. Detailed is an overview of the environmental movement analogous with the historical whitewashings of the ‘pacifist’ social struggles in India with Gandhi and Martin Luther King in the United States; the rise of greenwashing and the fallacy that all can be repaired by personal consumer choices. Based in part on ‘Endgame’, the best-selling book by Derrick Jensen, END:CIV asks: If your homeland was invaded by aliens who cut down the trees, poisoned the water, the air, contaminated the food supply and occupied the land by force, would you fight back?
Featuring interviews with Paul Watson, Waziyatawin, Peter Gelderloos, Lierre Keith, Stephanie McMillan, Qwatsinas, Rod Coronado, John Zerzan and others …
The culture of industrialized civilization is a culture of occupation. Occupation by the corporations and systems that support them. We must also recognize our willingness to consume comes at a price that threatens all life on earth.
The solution is not passively signing petitions or protesting in peaceful marches. The perpetrators will not listen to reason or ethics. The cycle of destroying life to feed greed requires force to be broken. The answer is organized, widespread political resistance. The question is, how much are we willing to tolerate before we fight back? No place on earth is so remote that it hasn't already been adversely affected. The tipping point is now.
