All Green groups are encouraged to use direct actions creatively in ways appropriate to their communities. It is important to plan and study before engaging in direct action. Affinity groups should be formed when doing civil disobedience. Greens are encouraged to build coalitions with like-minded groups and constituencies, both in planning and as a result of direct action.

We support all forms of nonviolent direct action, including civil disobedience. We neither condemn nor publicly advocate monkeywrenching (a term for direct action in support of the Earth taken from the title of an Edward Abbey novel), believing that such forms of resistance and creative sabotage should be left to individuals and their own consciences.
