There never was a good war or a bad peace. ~Ben Franklin
Essentially, we follow Peace Action's suggestions about conduct, specifically, these simple guidelines:
Participants are expected to adhere to the following rules, during the demonstration:
Respecting others, including policy-makers, law enforcement personnel and any other interlocutors;
Refraining from physical or verbal violence;
Abstaining from drug or alcohol use or possession;
Respecting group decision-making and agreeing to follow direction from those in charge of the tactical scenario of the action
These four principles were suggested by Kevin Martin, the Executive Director of Peace Action and Peace Action Education Fund; he has been a peace and social justice activist for 25 years. See his online article: http://www.pbs.org/kcet/tavissmiley/reports/what-does-nonviolence-r...
These are the basic ethical principals for TPF activism. With this information, we hope you feel comfortable enough to come join us for our civic actions, peace vigils, and anti-war marches.
