Schweik Action: Promoting Social Defense

Schweik Action Wollongong is a voluntary group in Wollongong, Australia, fostering awareness of nonviolent action and social defence, which is nonviolent community resistance to aggression as an alternative to military defence.

Social defense is based on widespread protest, persuasion, noncooperation and intervention in order to oppose military aggression or repression. It uses methods such as boycotts, acts of disobedience, strikes, demonstrations and setting up alternative institutions. No society has yet made systematic efforts to develop the capacity for social defence. Schweik Action Wollongong seeks to learn how to best promote this alternative.
