Direct ACTION is activity undertaken by individuals, groups, or governments to achieve political, economic, or social goals outside of less direct social/political channels. This can include nonviolent and violent activities which target persons, groups, or property deemed offensive to the direct action participant. Examples of direct action can include strikes, workplace occupations, sit-ins, tax resistance, graffiti, sabotage, hacktivism, property destruction, assault and murder. Non-violent actions are sometimes a form of civil disobedience, but some (such as strikes) do not always violate criminal law. In general, direct action is often used by those seeking social change, in some cases, revolutionary change. It is central to autonomism and has been advocated by a variety of Marxists and anarchists, including syndicalists, anarcho-communists, insurrectionary anarchists, green anarchists, Marxist humanists, anarcho-primitivists, agorists and pacifists.
ACTION research is a reflective process of progressive problem solving led by individuals working with others in teams or as part of a “community of practice” to improve the way they address issues and solve problems. Action research involves the process of actively participating in an organization change situation whilst conducting research. Action research can also be undertaken by larger organizations or institutions, assisted or guided by professional researchers, with the aim of improving their strategies, practices, and knowledge of the environments within which they practice.
