Civil resistance is political action that relies on the use of nonviolent resistance by civil groups to challenge a particular power, force, policy or regime. Civil resistance operates through appeals to the adversary, pressure and coercion: it can involve systematic attempts to undermine the adversary's sources of power, both domestic and international.
Much organizing, reporting, and writing of many actions does not specifically mention 'non-violent resistance', 'civil resistance' or other such terms, yet the actions concerned are properly included in articles and books on non-violent resistance, civil resistance and related topics, whether in Wikipedia or elsewhere.
