Non-Violent Direct Action

Once a certain level of organization has been achieved, ReAct supports organizations of workers and communities to take action. ReAct promotes non-violent action and develops the conditions of possibility for simultaneous transnational action throughout different countries.

We emphasize “direct action”, because we believe it places the individual in an active position, rather than a passive “representated” voice. We believe direct action leads to strategic thinking, collective action, recognition in the world by the world, and self-expression and defense. Direct action provides a valuable civic and political education. It reveals underlying conflicts and the relations between different actors, and it allows for the negotiation of and mediation between conflicting interests (that make up society. )

Through the non-violent approach of this type of action, ReAct transforms individuals’ potential into actual power.
