So, I’ve mentioned direct action, in connection with combatting the tech takeover of San Francisco. Here are some step-by-step guides.
WORKERS DIRECT ACTION
The Industrial Workers of the World published a variety of working class direct action guides over the years. Here’s a recent archived one, HOW TO FIRE YOUR BOSS.
Here’s a version by DAM/IWA called DIRECT ACTION IN INDUSTRY.
And yet another discussion on LibCom, called HOW TO SACK YOUR BOSS.
MORE WIDE RANGING DIRECT ACTION GUIDES
From nonviolence to citizens’ action to anarchist direct action, here’s a selection of guides from the Bay Area Public School:
CITIZEN’S GUIDE TO DIRECT ACTION
CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE TRAINING
ANARCHISM IN ACTION: METHODS, TACTICS, SKILLS AND IDEAS
DIRECT ACTION HANDBOOK
NONVIOLENT DIRECT ACTION
RUCKUS ACTION PLANNING TRAINING MANUAL
RUCKUS MEDIA TRAINING MANUAL

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away….
Maximum Rocknroll, the magazine I write for, used to publish “Book Your Own Fuckin’ Life” as a kind of Whole Earth Punk Rock Booking Catalog. Then it went online, then it died, and now its back. I can’t vouch for its quality, but here it is.
Also, a local Bay Area booking resource is now in play, called “Burn Down The Bay.” Again, I can’t vouch for its quality, but it is available online. Enjoy.
