Expert's answer

Civil disobedience is a civic, non-violent, and meticulous crack of law commenced to enact an alteration in government policies or state laws. Civil disobedience can take the form of legal protest, conscientious refusal, revolutionary action, militant protest, and organized forcible resistance. For instance the practice of organized forcible resistance. Organized forcible resistance is a prearranged effort by some portion of the civil population of a state to resist the legally proven government or an occupying power and to disturb civil order and stability. It seeks to attain its aims through either the use of non-violent resistance-civil resistance or by the use of force, whether unarmed or armed. During the American Revolutions in the United States of America, civilians used organized forcible resistance to enact a new state of leadership and governance.

In the recent past, organized forcible resistance has been used in several episodes. In Kenya, the Mau Mau Uprising that existed between 1952 to 1960, was a form of organized forcible resistance. It was also recognized as the Mau Mau Rebellion, the Kenya Emergency, and the Mau Mau Revolt. It was a war in the British Kenya Colony from 1920 to 1963 between the Mau Mau, and the British authorities to seek political independence.
