1 In his article, Mike Cardwell outlines the key features of nonviolent protests and gives examples of how such protests have been effectively deployed to bring about social change. He goes on to state that scholars have identified over 200 specific methods of nonviolent protest based on non-cooperation, nonviolent intervention and protest/persuasion. Imagine that you are going to organise a nonviolent protest about an issue you care passionately about. Based on your understanding of the article, how would you organise this most effectively? Explain your arguments.
2 Cardwell goes on to examine whether nonviolent protests work, citing specific examples including the mothers of the Plaza de Mayo. Find the section that uses the terms ‘monolithic’, ‘relational’ and ‘fragile’ (Sharp 2012). Explain these terms in your own words based on an event you have studied (for example in GCSE history).
