Annotation: THE URBAN GUERRILLA IS DIFFERENTIATED FROM THE MORE TRADITIONAL RURAL GUERRILLA - THE GEOGRAPHY AND DENSE POPULATION OF URBAN AREAS REQUIRE A SOPHISTICATED STRATEGY DESIGNED TO WIN POPULAR SUPPORT.
Abstract: THIS STRATEGY IS CONCEPTUALIZED IN FIVE STAGES. THE FIRST IS TO GAIN PUBLICITY THROUGH ASSASSINATIONS, BOMBINGS, AND OTHER SENSATIONAL TACTICS. THE NEXT STEP IS TO BOLSTER THE RANKS AND ENLARGE THE ORGANIZATION. STAGE THREE IS TO ISOLATE THE POLICE FROM THE CITIZENRY AND TERRORISTS ALIKE. THIS WILL, HOPEFULLY, BE FOLLOWED BY INTENSE GOVERNMENT REPRESSION THAT WILL CREATE NUMEROUS NEW CAUSES. THE FINAL STAGE RELIES ON THE COORDINATION OF THE MASS MOVEMENTS THAT HAVE ARISEN WITH THE TACTICS OF THE RELATIVELY SMALL NUMBER OF ORGANIZERS. FOR GOVERNMENT STRATEGY, SEE NCJ-34207.
Index Term(s): Political influences; Revolutionary or terrorist groups; Social change; Urban area studies; Urban guerrilla warfare
