 Psychological Operations In Guerrilla Warfare
Guerrilla warfare is born and grows in the political environment; in the constant combat to dominate that area of political mentality that is inherent to all human beings and which collectively constitutes the "environment" in which guerrilla warfare moves, and which is where precisely its victory or failure is defined.
The tactical effort in guerrilla warfare is directed at the weaknesses of the enemy and at destroying their military resistance capacity, and should be parallel to a psychological effort to weaken and destroy their sociopolitical capacity at the same time.
Guerrilla Weapons Are The Strength of the People over an Illegal Government The armed propaganda in populated areas does not give the impression that weapons are the power of the guerrillas over the people, but rather that the weapons are the strength of the people against a regime of repression.

 CNN Cold War - Historical Documents: CIA Manual: Psychological Operations in Guerrilla Warfare
All these acts have as their goal the creation of an identification of the people with the weapons and the guerrillas who carry them, so that the population feels that the weapons are, indirectly, their weapon to protect them and help them in the struggle against a regime of oppression.

 Understanding Guerrilla Warfare
In all these phases of guerrilla warfare, some of the common tactics are the dispersion of guerrilla forces, the night attack as a psychological weapon against the enemy, the emphasis on attacking isolated forces, and the use of the local populace for support.
The philosophy of the guerrilla is that the guerrilla represents the masses.
Guerrilla warfare is conducted in three phases depending on the organization and strength of the guerrilla and the comparable strength of the enemy.

 Guerrilla marketing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Guerrilla marketing, as described by Jay Conrad Levinson in his popular 1982 book Guerrilla Marketing, is an unconventional way of performing marketing activities (primarily promotion) on a very low budget.
Guerrilla marketing was designed for small businesses, but it can also be (and is) used by large businesses.
Today, Guerrilla Marketing is driven by Jay Conrad Levinson in the US, and by his European President Paul Hanley in Europe, Middle-East and Africa.

Although the American Revolutionary War is often thought of as a guerrilla war, guerrilla tactics were uncommon, and almost all of the battles involved conventional set piece battles.
One of the exceptions was in the south, the brunt of the war was upon militia forces who fought the enemy British troops and their Loyalist supporters, but used concealment, surprise, and other guerrilla tactics to much advantage.

 Global Guerrillas
Guerrillas: Alali Horsfall, Dokubo-Asari's second-in-command in the Niger Delta People's Volunteer Force, said by cell phone Thursday that he and a force of 6,000 men, armed with machetes and dynamite, had taken over 10 oil flow stations and would not abandon them until their leader was freed from custody.
Guerrillas increasingly understand that it is non-productive for secrecy in most communications and coordination efforts -- as demonstrated by recent media enabled communications between Zarqawi and bin Laden.
A primary goal of Iraq's guerrillas is to fragment the country's loyalties -- ethnic, religious, tribal, etc. A hollow, non-functional state that is increasingly reliant on loyalist paramilitaries (Badr Brigades and Peshmerga) is precisely the desired outcome.

 The Guerrilla Girls (Articles) Harry Sheff
The gorilla masks are a play on the group's "guerrilla" name and a way of keeping the focus off individual personalities while maintaining a sense of humor.
The Guerrilla Girls use the masks and aliases for their public appearances, which include interviews, workshops, speaking engagements, and of course protests.
Recent highlights include photos of the Guerrilla Girls' design for male and female librarian dolls (Betty the Bookworm and Merrion the Librarian), a refutation of Bush's claim that Afghani women are better off since the American invasion, and news that things are improving for the women of Morocco.

 'Guerrilla': Revolutionary Has-Been (washingtonpost.com)
Hearst, who drove the getaway car at a bank robbery that left a woman dead, served two years in prison before her sentence was commuted by President Jimmy Carter; six members of the SLA were not so lucky and died in a fiery shootout with police.
That's the question, the way of framing things, that distinguishes both people of conscience and violent ideologues from the rest of the democratic mass.
Guerrilla: The Taking of Patty Hearst (90 minutes, at Landmark E Street) is not rated but contains obscenity and footage of a shootout.

 Guerrilla HCI
I used the term "guerrilla HCI" in the title of this chapter because I believe that simplified usability methods can be a way for a company to gradually build up its reliance on systematic usability methods, starting with the bare minimum and gradually progressing to a more refined lifecycle approach.
Many teachers of usability engineering have described the almost religious effect it seems to have the first time students try running a user test and see with their own eyes the difficulties perfectly normal people can have using supposedly "easy" software.
Unfortunately, organizations are more difficult to convert, so they mostly have to be conquered from within by the use of guerrilla methods like discount usability engineering that gradually show more and more people that usability methods work and improve products.

 'Guerrilla': Hardly Radical (washingtonpost.com)
"Guerrilla: The Taking of Patty Hearst" is a fascinating, straight-ahead account of the short-lived history of the Symbionese Liberation Army, whose brief, disastrous life was highlighted by the kidnapping of heiress Patricia Campbell Hearst.
"Guerrilla" (whose original title was "Neverland: The Rise and Fall of the Symbionese Liberation Army") offers insightful interviews with former SLA members Russ Little and Mike Bortin, and renders the Hearst/SLA story effectively with memorable news footage.
"Guerrilla" is an engaging film, but it's a documentary and nothing more.

 Battlefield:Vietnam | Guerrilla Tactics
Initially, local guerrillas were given only a basic minimum of infantry training, but if they were recruited to a main force unit, they could receive up to a month of advanced instruction.
To ensure that the guerrillas understood why they were fighting, all training courses included political instruction.
By the mid-1960s, most main force Vietcong troops were armed with Chinese versions of the Russian AK-47 submachine gun.
