Nesta formação, discutimos as teorias de mudança que várias organizações têm sobre diversos assuntos e analisar as estratégias e tácticas que as mesmas utilizam para atingir a mudança que pretendem. Depois, discutimos como e porque utilizamos estratégias de escalamento. Esta segunda parte é relacionada com o “momentum-driven organising”, um dos princípios da Extinction Rebellion. É uma ferramenta organizacional que foi utilizada em mobilizações como Rebelião em Lisboa, Fechar Almaraz, Parar o Furo e Camp–in–Gás.

You may well ask: “Why direct action? Why sit ins, marches and so forth? Isn’t negotiation a better path?” You are quite right in calling for negotiation. Indeed, this is the very purpose of direct action. Nonviolent direct action seeks to create such a crisis and foster such a tension that a community which has constantly refused to negotiate is forced to confront the issue. It seeks so to dramatize the issue that it can no longer be ignored. My citing the creation of tension as part of the work of the nonviolent resister may sound rather shocking. But I must confess that I am not afraid of the word “tension.” I have earnestly opposed violent tension, but there is a type of constructive, nonviolent tension which is necessary for growth. Just as Socrates felt that it was necessary to create a tension in the mind so that individuals could rise from the bondage of myths and half truths to the unfettered realm of creative analysis and objective appraisal, so must we see the need for nonviolent gadflies to create the kind of tension in society that will help men rise from the dark depths of prejudice and racism to the majestic heights of understanding and brotherhood. The purpose of our direct action program is to create a situation so crisis packed that it will inevitably open the door to negotiation.
