198 Methods of Nonviolent Action

Practitioners of nonviolent struggle have an entire arsenal of “nonviolent weapons” at their disposal. Listed below are 198 of them, classified into three broad categories: nonviolent protest and persuasion, noncooperation (social, economic, and political), and nonviolent intervention. A description and historical examples of each can be found in volume two of The Politics of Nonviolent Action, by Gene Sharp.

Each Other

EachOther bring together journalists, professional storytellers and creatives to increase public knowledge of and support for human rights. We tell the human stories which powerfully illustrate why human rights are so important and how they relate to the lives of everybody. Sometimes these stories are those that aren’t covered in other media and, in telling them, we are amplifying the voices of individuals and organisations fighting to make a difference.
