  1. Civil resistance - Wikipedia › wiki › Civil_resistance

    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 or expose the adversary's sources of power, both domestic and international.

    I see you are a new editor. If "civil resistance" is a term used widely by various movement please reference it with WP:Reliable sources. Otherwise it is all WP:Original researchwhich can be removed. Or the article merged into a similar one like nonviolent resistance. Do not remove the tag until the whole article is properly sourced. If you can't or don't find references the best thing to do with this article - besides delete it - is to move it to being about the contents of this one book. Thanks. CarolMooreDC (talk) 03:42, 15 February 2011 (UTC) 1. 1.1. I put back the tag. You can only use material that actually mentions "civil resistance" and not put in material that is about something you consider to be civil resistance. I'll give you all a couple days to show those refs which do not have links or quotations to prove your point actually do so. Per this policy: WP:Proveit. Otherwise it is WP:original research. 1.2. Also, per Wikipedia_talk:Non-free_content that quote from the book...

    I'll comment as I see anything problematic.

    There are compeling resasons for the merging. It is basicaly the same concept. The examples cited are also the same!Olegwiki (talk) 18:04, 9 March 2011 (UTC) 1. I hear what you're saying, but there are reasons for keeping both terms (and some other near-synonyms) in use. Some of the reasons are indicated in the opening paragraphs of the article, and are implied in the section added today on the relation to other forms of power. I'd just add that in different societies, or in different contexts, one term may be more appropriate than the other. The fact is that both terms, and others, are widely used. I'd completely agree that there should be extensive cross-referencing between the articles that relate to these terms. Aberdonian99 (talk) 19:24, 9 March 2011 (UTC) 1. 1.1. The fact that the term is increasingly being used ( it for 2011) makes it notable, though a clearer presentation of why it is being used so much more lately than just nonviolent action or resistance would b...

    I know those who most have worked on this have written their own books and articles. But they must make sure that the way this material is presented is not just a reflection of their views but of a number of views. (Others can summarize your views, but at very least you have to identify them as yours if you are doing so, plus of course provide cites.) I don't feel like giving detailed specifics right now, though the introductory paragraphs and numbered lists in last two sections stand out as particularly problematic. Please read and consider what is on the policy page WP:Original Research. CarolMooreDC (talk) 14:08, 24 June 2011 (UTC) Thanks. This requires some further checking and thought. I will get back on all this later in the month when I get time.Aberdonian99 (talk) 09:19, 4 July 2011 (UTC) The process of revision and adding sources is now in train. The changes made to date further clarify that the article has the character of drawing on a wide range of views and sources, and...

    I have removed the "freedom of worship" section for two reasons. Firstly, while it cited many sources, those sources largely didn't discuss civil resistance. Thus it was original synthesis, if not outright original research. Secondly, that topic was given far too much weight. Discussing one specific example of civil resistance at such length is hardly appropriate, more so when it's a comparatively little-known example. Discussing the Women of the Wall at greater length than Gandhi and the US civil rights movement combined borders on the absurd. Huon (talk) 20:05, 13 November 2013 (UTC)

    Hello, editors. I have stumbled upon this article and would like to correct what I see as a very big error. I refer to the picture that is used to illustrate the term civil resistance. It is a misconception to think that Boris Yeltsin was acting in the interest of the people or was a leader of something resembling a civil resistance movement. He was a communist and he was acting in the interest of the close-knit group of people who would go on to become oligarchs during his rule. Therefore putting Yeltsins picture to illustrate the article on civil resistance is even somewhat insulting to me. I propose to remove the controversial picture and substitute it for something more suitable and less disputed. If any sources and or references need to be provided, I would be happy to do so, just say the word) Net mozgov (talk) 17:36, 17 February 2014 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Net mozgov (talk • contribs) 1.
