Non-violent Fight

About non-violent fight:
Power in societies comes from the consent and obedience of people in those societies. Non-violent fight changes this pattern of consent and obedience and becomes a way of exercising power. Any form of injustice exists because it has the support of key societal groups and institutions. Non-violent action shifts the loyalties and undermines the reliability of those key groups and institutions.

There are several reasons why people do not get involved in non-violent movements and organisations to fight for justice and against starvation, slavery, oppresion, unemployment,... Some of them are:
  1. The belief that non-violence is inactive, submissive, or passive resistance;
  2. Worldwide ignorance of the successes of nonviolent strategies in the past and at present;
  3. The stereotype that "non-violence" is a religious or behavioral preference rather than an alternative means of fighting for political, social, and economic goals;
  4. The tendency of the global news media to neglect coverage of or to incorrectly report nonviolent actions;
  5. Low levels of attention and support from international organizations and governments for civilian-based, nonviolent movements fighting for rights and democracy;
  6. The belief that non-violent fight needs charismatic leaders. While some movements have had such leaders, such as Mohandas Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr., others have not.
