Nonviolent Code of Conduct
SAGE Alliance Goal
The SAGE Alliance is organizing a people’s campaign to shutdown the Vermont Yankee Nuclear Power Reactor on March 21st, 2012, through grassroots organizing, education and nonviolent direct actions.
Our attitude will be one of openness and respect toward all we encounter in our actions.
We will use no violence, verbal or physical, toward any person.
We will not harm anyone, and we will not retaliate in reaction to violence.
We will not carry weapons.
We will neither be under the influence nor bring any non-prescribed drugs or alcohol.
We will neither bring dogs nor other animals, except for service animals.
During a demonstration we will not run nor make threatening motions.
In case of any confrontation, we will sit down.
While affirming that people’s lives and safety are more important than property, we will not destroy or damage property.
All participants in the civil disobedience actions will receive preparation in nonviolent direct action.
Those engaging in civil disobedience in concert with us will be members of affinity groups represented at a spokescouncil.
We support a diversity of non-violent direct action including, but not limited to, civil disobedience.
