Great advice from the ACT UP Civil Disobedience Manual.

•    Your objectives must be reasonable. You must be able to communicate this to the people in the office.
•    Maintain as much eye contact as possible.
•    Make no abrupt gestures. Move slowly. When practical, tell the people there what you are going to do before you do it. Don’t say anything threatening, critical, or hostile.
•    Don’t be afraid of stating the obvious.
•    Seek to befriend your opponent’s better nature; even the most brutal and brutalised among us have some spark of decency that the nonviolent defender can reach.
