Goals and Tactics
The primary tactic used is a "peaceful protest". These gatherings were help in populated areas in order to be seen. Pacifists would often make picket signs with mottos supporting their argument, and yell encouragement at bystanders. These protests were also a revolt against the government, implying that they would not be taking part in, or supporting any war. Other verbal tactic were speeches and rallies, which they would plea their case for the objection of violence in attempts to gain allies. Another tactic was through literature. Some pacifistic authors would write poems, articles, and even novels about the ideas of pacifism to spread the word to the public.
