The Deterritorial Support Group (DSG) is an internet-based political entity that emerged early in the second decade of the 21st century.[1] Named in derisive homage to the London Metropolitan riot police unit the Territorial Support Group, the group was said by The Guardian to have "cast a long shadow over politics in 2011" through the viral spread of the output of their self-described "ultra-left propaganda machine" throughout mainstream media discourse.[1] As of December 2011, it was composed of 10-20 North London-based underemployed graduate students with "no future" who were radicalised by the 2010 UK student protests. The group was responsible for the exposure of disgraced journalist Johann Hari.[1] They characterise themselves as ultra-leftist and anti-authoritarian communists.[2]
