5)  Financial support, which in this case
came from outside the university from
concerned citizens.  Although this fund 
ing made it possible to buy newspaper
ads, fly in speakers for demonstrations,
and pay some organizers, these elements
are by no means essential to a successful
mobilization.  This manual contains myr 
iad organizing strategies that are essen 
tially "free."
6) Spirit of nonviolence.  FPLA was
predicated on the nonviolent teachings of
Gandhi and Martin Luther King; UCLA
and ROTC officials were addressed, pub 
licly and in person, with respect and rea 
son, which was a useful strategy particu 
larly when some ROTC representatives
became defensive and lashed out.  In the
face of such outbursts, FPLA representa 
tives   and their requests  appeared all
the more reasonable.  Firm, resolved and
committed, yes, but always reasonable.
7) Steady escalation from research to sig 
nature collection to on campus demon 
strations and the courting of media atten 
tion was a hallmark of FPLA.  
8) Check points were built in to FPLA s
plan.  It was important to provide UCLA
with a reasonable amount of time to
respond to questions and requests.  For
instance, once the chancellor was pre 
sented with the list of signatories to the
Statement of Conscience, FPLA stood
back to give him and his advisors time to
absorb the messages and formulate a
response.  It was also important to be
flexible about the scope and content of
the on campus demonstrations, depend 
ing on the reaction of the campus com 
munity to previous actions, the academic
schedules of FPLA student organizers,
and other factors.
