Biographies of EndCIV, from EndCIV.com

Derrick Jensen
Jensen’s books are mandatory reading in the study of culture and social change. With over two dozen works in print, including A Language Older Than Words, Listening to the Land, Strangely Like War, and While the Planet Burns, his ideas are gaining ground around the world. The popularity of Endgame continues to grow, especially among young people growing up in an increasingly degraded environment. They find in Jensen’s analysis a sharp-edged realism, refreshingly free of self-serving justifications for the destruction of the natural world and enslavement of our fellow humans.

Jensen writes for the New York Times Magazine, Audubon, and The Sun, among many others, and his speaking engagements pack university auditoriums, conference halls, and bookstores across North America.

“Derrick Jensen is a force for the common good.” – Terry Tempest-Williams.
“Derrick Jensen is a public intellectual who both breaks and mends the reader’s heart.” – Publisher’s Weekly.

Franklin López – Director
Award-winning filmmaker Franklin López hails from San Juan, Puerto Rico. Selected as Atlanta’s Emerging Artist of the Year in 2003, his work has been featured on Canada’s City TV, GNN, Current, BET, and Democracy Now!

“Join the Resistance! Fall in Love,” López’s breakthough film, reached minor cult status with 30,000 views and screenings around the world. In 2005, López’s post-Katrina video remix “George Bush Don’t Like Black People” reached 1 million people and got a nod from the New York Times, Washington Post and BET. Wired Magazine picked subMedia.TV for its list of top ten online video sites in 2006. The same year, López was hired to produce Amy Goodman’s Democracy Now!

In 2007, López unleashed “It’s the End of the World as We Know It and I Feel Fine.” The online TV news series is watched by tens of thousands of loyal fanatics and broadcast nationally on the Dish Network.
