Successful social movements around the world have all included a DIVERSITY of styles of action in order to influence or cause change. To build a successful social movement, it is absolutely necessary to look at and study successful social movements around the world, current and historical, to see what worked and what didn’t. Consistently, social movements are most successful when the diverse methods used by a broad based people’s movement are, at least somewhat, unified and coordinated towards their common goals, despite ideological or strategic differences. Social movements become weak and fail when they begin dividing into ideological and strategic camps that fight against each other.
