Protesters by mezzoblue (CC by-nc-nd)
A student campaign using the social networking website Facebook has forced a multinational bank into a U-turn over charges. HSBC is to abandon plans to scrap interest-free overdrafts for students leaving university this summer.
The first organized lunch-counter sit-in for the purpose of integrating segregated establishments began in July 1958 in Wichita, Kansas at Dockum Drugs, a store in the old Rexall chain. In early August the drugstore became integrated. A few weeks later on August 19, 1958 in Oklahoma City a nationally recognized sit-in at the Katz Drug Store lunch counter occurred. The Oklahoma City Sit-in Movement was led by NAACP Youth Council leader Clara Luper, a local high school teacher, and young local students, including Luper&apos;s eight-year old daughter, who suggested the Sit-in be held. The group quickly desegregated the Katz Drug Store lunch counters. It took several more years, but she and the students, using the tactic, integrated all of Oklahoma City&apos;s eating establishments. Today, in downtown Wichita, Kansas, stands a statue depicting a waitress at a counter serving people honors this pioneering sit-in.

Letter from Birmingham Jail
Direct action to initiate
Unjust law is against God’s
Martin Luther King
“For years now I have heard the word ‘Wait!’…We
must come to see…that ‘justice too long delayed is
justice denied.’…One may well ask, ‘How can you
advocate breaking some laws and obeying others?’
The answer is found in the fact that there are two
types of laws: just and unjust...One has not only a legal
but a moral responsibility to obey just laws.
Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey
M. L. King, Letter from Birmingham Jail
I shall assume, as requiring no
argument, that there is, at least in
a society such as ours, a moral
obligation to obey the law,
although it may, of course, be
overridden in certain cases by
other more stringent obligations.
…a public, nonviolent,
conscientious yet political act
contrary to the law usually done
with the aim of bringing about a
change in the law or policies of
Rawles: Theory of Justice (1971)
“committed openly…non-violently…and conscientiously…
within the framework of the rule of law…with the
intention of frustrating or protesting some law, policy or
decision…of the government.”
H. A. Bedau: Civil Disobedience in Focus
...if the aim of disobedience is to present a case to the public, then only
such disobedience as is necessary to present this case is justified...if
disobedience for publicity purposes is to be compatible with fair
compromise, it must be non-violent.
Peter Singer: Civil disobedience
Not defensible in a democracy
Have ALL other methods been exhausted?
Obeying social contract
1. Disobedience Purpose of civil protest for change
2. Civil Public, open, acceptance of consequences
3. Non-violent respect people & property
4. Legitimacy Conflict of laws or morals
