Civil Disobedience Index


"Those who profess to favor freedom, yet deprecate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightening. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters. This struggle may be a moral one; or it may be a physical one; or it may be both moral and physical; but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will."

– Frederick Douglass, African-American abolitionist

The history of Civil Disobedience is a long and international one.
ACT UP practices a form that comes from a variety of progressive movements.
Below are several pages describing some of the history, theory, and practice of civil disobedience.

Many of these sections were taken (with love) from the Handbook for Nonviolent Action available from the War Resister's League in New York City.
