Direct action is activity undertaken by individuals, groups, or governments to achieve political, economic, or social goals outside of normal social/political channels. This can include nonviolent and violent activities which target persons, groups, or property deemed offensive to the direct action participant.

Within the Occupy Movement, the most well known direct action is the initial formation of the Occupy Wall Street encampment at Zuccotti Park in Manhattan, NYC. Occupations typically have a direct action working group and plan, promote, and execute actions relevant to their locale and designed to garner local, national, and international media attention.
