Nonviolent Direct Actions

Know Your Rights and Risks, and Push Boundaries

Direct Actions can include protest (expressing your dissent), non-cooperation (withdrawing from the problematic system), solutions or alternatives (developing alternatives to problems) and intervention (directly intervening in the way a system functions). While indirect actions, such as voting, rely on others to grant the people their demands, direct action takes the power into the hands of the people to demand change.
