    Nonviolence training - Diversity of tactics and backfire

    This session we will be talking about a diverse array of tactics, dealing with violent flanks, and what happens with backfire.

    Violent flanks/Diversity of Tactics - how to use a variety of tactics to make progress, how to deal with violent portions of a movement that can arise.

    Backfire - All violence backfires. Violence by armed forces of the state opens up sympathy for a campaign as long as the campaign keeps its nonviolent discipline and image. Violence, even in self-defense, by a movement backfires and justifies crackdown even as it removes sympathy for the movement by general public.

    Room will be updated as soon as we have the information.
