Chicago Principles

 

Our solidarity will be based on respect for a political diversity within the struggle for social, economic and environmental justice. As individuals and groups, we may choose to engage in a diversity of tactics and plans of action but are committed to treating each other with respect and working towards a common goal of peace and justice.
 
As we plan our actions and tactics, we will take care to maintain appropriate separations of time and space between divergent tactics.
 
We oppose any state repression of dissent, including surveillance, infiltration, disruption, limiting our action to “free speech zones,” and violence, or attempts to divide our movement through the conscious creation of divisions regarding tactics, organization, strategies, and alliances.
 
Any debates or criticisms will stay internal to the movement, avoiding any public or media denunciations of fellow activists and events."
