    Direct Action By Tom Fitzgerald. Officially licensed for obooko members. Book Synopsis. Prologue: The Present The three men and one woman walked into the chief justice’s chamber on the eighth floor of the Department of Justice Building, better known as the J. Edgar Hoover building. They; along with the chief justice were all federal.   Spaces for nonviolent direct action can be intense, scary and easily trigger a trauma response. And yet, those spaces are critically important right now to push for change. Our responses to violence and injustice have to match the escalation that it is responding to. And we are responding to incredibly escalated forms of harm.

    A framework of strategic nonviolent direct action makes it easy to reject provocation. We know what we’ve agreed to — and anyone urging other courses of action can be reminded of those agreements or rejected. There’s plenty of room in this struggle for a diversity of movements and a diversity of organizing and actions.   Direct action is anything you do outside of that, and the theory behind it is, you create situations that shine a spotlight on injustice and force a crisis that authorities need to address.
