The assault is remorseless

In watching, I understand how better to write a poetry of resistance that will declare the necessity of preserving this region.  Can it operate without me shouting out my poems against the shooters, the shires?  Whatever the answer is, I do know that every act of resistance adds together, and remaining non-aggressive but resolute in response is what slows the assault against the environment.  The assault is remorseless.  -- John Kinsella, December issue of Poetry

The assault is remorseless but the resistance must remain non-aggressive. I can't fathom this bit. Especially when it's only words.
