Episode 6

Eager peace and justice groups may rush to call a street protest or a boycott before thinking through the rationale for choosing a tactic. Choosing the right nonviolent direct action tactics for each phase of a campaign is critical for meeting objectives.

Tactics that do something,

And tactics that refrain from doing something.
