Campaign

“A strategically planned and executed set of nonviolent actions aimed at a targeted group.”

Srdja Popovic, Andrej Milivojevic and Slobodan Djinovic, Nonviolent Struggle – 50 Crucial Points, 2007, page 70

As you can read in 50 Crucial Points, actions taken together become a campaign. The actions, according to Gene Sharp, fall into three broad categories, including protest and persuasion (i.e. marches, displaying symbols, vigils, etc.), noncooperation (i.e. a boycott of products, a strike, refusal to pay taxes, etc.), and intervention (i.e. a sit-in, picketing, hunger strikes, etc.). In a campaign, every public action should be a part of the larger effort, and your strategy should explain why specific types of actions are performed as building blocks of a campaign.
