Civil Resistance 2.0 (http://tinyurl.com/CivilResistance20) is a crowdsourced database of nonviolent methods upgraded to incorporate the latest technology. Our goal is to provide activists with a go-to resource of technology-assisted civil resistance methods which they can use to inform their efforts.
