  • Identify the group:

    • Who is being oppressed? Where are they located?  How many of them are there?

    • Who, what, and why are they resisting?

      • What specific things have happened to this group that are causing them to resist?

    • What do they hope to achieve/what is their mission?

  • What mode of resistance is this?  (Physical force, peaceful protest, letter writing campaign, boycott, etc.)

    • What specific examples of this are currently happening?

    • What examples of this are there?

  • What have they accomplished so far?

    • How has this group had a positive impact on an individual person or people?

  • What, if anything, are people outside of this group doing to help?
