Resistance movement facts for kids

Kids Encyclopedia Facts

A resistance movement is an organized movement by some portion of the civil population of a country to fight against an occupying power and to cause civil disorder. Sometimes they could be a nonviolent resistance (sometimes called civil resistance), or the use of force.

In many cases, as for example in Norway in the Second World War, a resistance movement may have had both violent and non-violent methods.
