Activism: Peace: Nonviolent Civil Disobedience

This is taken from the Nonviolent Civil Disobedience Handbook from the Alliance to Stop First Strike, Santa Cruz, CA (October 1987 actions against Lockheed Missles and Space' development of the Trident-II D5 first strike MIRV'd nuclear missile).

While this Handbook is very old and may be useful primarily for historical purposes, I find that to this day I still I refer to the consensus process guidelines before I enter into what I think may be a difficult meeting. Consensus works, but of course, everyone must agree to the process, first.
