Question: silent actions

Just wanted to let you know about our action for Jan. 20th, I have found that some radicals don't get what we are doing and the potential force of the action when we are confronted with the mob of Bush supporters who will want us to react. Do you have specific examples of silent and powerful actions in history-from India, to Civil rights, antiwar. Including examples that led to violence being perpetrated against the actionists?
