As for civil disobedience you make me laugh as that the government has made sure that is illegal too and has no problem putting 100s if not 1000s in jail for trying that.
Canadian Rebel Alliance, jail is sometimes a part of civil disobedience i.e. Ghandi, while insisting on peaceful demonstrations was arrested more then once, his moral authority increased the longer he was in jail.
Likewise, western Canadian grain farmers who have served their partial and full sentences. When people are willing to go to jail to defend their principles, it serves to show the unjustness of the law. As more and more are willing to go to jail then the unjust law looses its meaning. If 1000's do indeed go to jail over an unjust law, then the system begins to clog up and the law is unenforceable.
Jail time served when the law is unjust is a very effective form of civil disobedience.
You are right that some radical feminist orgs have resorted to violence, and that is what is discrediting them in the public domain.
We do not have to resort to that level of nastiness, support is lost not gained.
Peaceful rallies are another form of very effective civil disobedience. Only a few years ago a student organisation named Opter, likely similar to Free Dominion in that it was a group of young people who were internet based, brought down the regime of Slobodan Milosevic by the means of peaceful, civil disobedience.
Opter educated their young people on how to be activists and then their representatives organised and got an extremely apathetic general public to take part in the ongoing rallies. They did it one rally at a time, winning over one person at a time. The fractured opposition was forced to unite because the pressure from the people was too great.
Until, after the general election that they knew Milosevic had lost, by their email chain of scrutineers, but they knew he would try to rig the election; their capital city's streets filled up with so many thousands and thousands of people that no one could move or go anywhere. They always made a point of being extra polite to the police, so in the end the police joined the people.
The government branded them as fascists, when all they were for was freedom, but the people saw through the governement's claims, because when they saw them face to face they were average young people.
Because Canada is still a democracy, the level of protest does not need to be this drastic. But to enact a regime change, yes the pressure has to be greater then it is now.
The sleeping giant, as in Canada's general public has been awakened before; remember the GST and Brian Mulroney and the PCs?
Kyoto can have the same effect on the general public with the Liberals. Only when in the streets of Ontario, live cams have found most people don't even know what Kyoto is (so why are they responding to the surveys you might ask, or who are the surveys interviewing).
That has been the plan of Chretien all along. As long as the people are uninformed the easier it is to ram something like Kyoto through. The longer the public has to become educated, the more they will not be in favour of the proposed change i.e. Charlottown Accord, the GST etc.
Chretien has been around the bloc, so he knows this basic fact and doesn't give a rat's patootee if he takes down Martin and the Liberals in the process, because he has a bad case of Manning fever as in deposing whoever takes the reigns after him.
Anyway, our work is cut out for us, but if a bunch of students can take down a dictator like Milosevic through peaceful means, surely the cross-section of Canadian patriots found at Free Dominion can take down the current Liberal regime in a democracy using many of the same principles.
In order to reach the objective of Liberal regime change, is going to take heavy-duty education and real live activism. Free Dominion is the place to meet and discuss these ideas. Just like Opter, and Free Republic, we can meet and discuss activism ideas here on Free Dominion.
But in order to educate and reach the general public, Free Dominion needs MULAH, as in hard cash to get the information out to the people, in the form of bumper stickers and posters and signs.
Free Dominion needs money to archive the words that will inspire the people to rise above their apathy.
Pennies, dimes, nickels, dollars must be sent into central headquarters to enable Free Dominion to organise the kind of activities that we need to defeat the current Liberal regime. This is the way it has always been done; we have a National organisation to do it for us, now they need the money to move ahead with their organisation.
Send dem da money!
