Action directe (French) is literally 'direct action'. The syndicalist Georges Sorel (1847-1922), rejecting the "peaceful" tactics of the socialist parties and labor unions, advocated a radical change in "working class" policies in the form of action directs, i.e., violent action aiming at the destruction of what was called the "bourgeois" system of economic management.
