The organization of Guerrilla Self-Protection can be broken up into this basic cadre structure: Block Commander, Commander, Block Leader, Cell Leader, and Guerrilla. The structure is built on the premise of the active spreading of Guerrilla Self-Protection. It is not a hierarchy of “rank.”

It should be thought of as an acknowledgement of the efforts the individual has put into spreading Guerrilla Self-Protection to serve others. The more service, the more value to the communities, and therefore the greater responsibility and acknowledgement.

This is a non-hierarchical approach and each individual decides their level of community involvement and action—understanding that where energy is receivedenergy will be given.
