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.
In strategic nonviolent conflict, a movement’s Vision of Tomorrow should attract the widest possible base of support.The more your vision becomes a shared vision in society,the more forceful it will become and it is possible that one day it will become true.Otherwise,your vision will only be a list of nice wishes shared by a few people.
Most people will struggle and sacrifice only for goals that are concrete and realistic enough to be reasonably attainable.Widely shared objectives create the potential for more widely distributed risks and reduce the likelihood that any single part of your movement will become a decisive target for your opponent.
