Deterritorial Support Group
The Deterritorial Support Group (DSG) was an internet-based political entity that emerged early in the second decade of the 21st century. 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. As of December 2011[update], 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 played a part in the downfall of British journalist Johann Hari by discovering plagiarized quotes in Hari's interview of the Italian author Antonio Negri. They characterise themselves as ultra-leftist and anti-authoritarian communists.
As of 2011, the Group's website indicates that they are no longer operating.
