Of course compromises would serve to ensure that an anti-nuclear campaign’s integrity was matched by its scope in a way that could successfully mobilize large and diverse numbers of people. But how diverse should these coalitions really be? Patrick Lacefield, a member of the WRL, FOR, and the Democratic Socialists of America, felt the infighting within the June 12 Coalition instructive, insofar as it could teach future coalitions how not to operate.

It was not just the existence of alternative politics that separated these two approaches, but an uncertainty as to how to most effectively utilize new waves of support and turn them into a powerful force for change.

The WRL, WILPF, USPC, and others continued to have their say in the coalition and continued to organize for their members and friends to get to New York on June 12 but also became more interested in organizing civil disobedience actions on June 14, the Monday following the mass rally in Manhattan. As a divisive protest tactic, nonviolent civil disobedience was not endorsed by many of the mainstream peace organizations, and those that did promote it as a dramatic campaign tactic acknowledged its divisive nature.
