I, Ben Barker, am a radical activist, writer, and community organizer, living on land now called Southeastern Wisconsin. I'm the coordinator for the Wisconsin chapter of an environmental and social justice movement called Deep Green Resistance and founder of a radical literature distributor called Beautiful Resistance Distro, Most importantly, I am a humble member of human and non-human communities, which I live for and will die to protect. My primary emergency is building a culture of resistance (locally and globally) to confront and dismantle the dominant culture.

The Kid Cutbank blog is a manifestation of my burning desire, love, and rage as I grow and learn and fight back against this culture. This space helps me to record the progression of my activism, thoughts, and feelings, and my greatest hope for the project is that it will be useful to allies.
