Resources for Organizing for October 5th
Resources for Organizing
WRL is in the process of creating a web-based handbook for people organizing for October 5th. That will include tools for organizing to bring people to Washington, and tools for people planning regional actions. Until that is ready, we encourage you to refer to the following resources. The basic scenario for the DC action can be found at iraqpledge.org, which includes a link for the nonviolence guidelines for October 5th and a Nonviolent Direct Action Checklist (iraqpledge.org/checklist.html). War Resisters´s International’s Handbook for Nonviolent Campaigns) is a valuable resource. The following sections, with basic information on “Organizing for Effective Actions!” are available in pdf.
There are many other sections of the handbook that are helpful resources, including “Tasks and Tools for Faciliating a Training”, which you can find on the table of contents link above. Additional resources can be found at www.peaceworkmagazine.org/how-wage-peace-justice-tools-activists. Please remember that any distribution of these materials should give credit to the source.
