On March 4th,2018 – Derrick Jensen (one of the co-founders of DGR) held a public talk at the Eugene Public Library. His talk, which was about the destruction of the planet and the patriarchal violation imperative, was met with such vocal and threatening hostility that Derrick was forced to hire security from a private local security firm.

This is a public event hosted at the library in Eugene. TRA’s tried boycotting it, threw stink bombs and were harassing anyone trying to see Derrick Jensen’s talk. Thankfully, it wasn’t at a school, and they let him speak because it was a public space, but the TRAS tried to drown out his livestream of the event by being extra-woke douchebags that scream and cough over things they don’t like.
