Fighting back is characterized by the use of organized, military or armed means to undermine genocidal authority, and is exhibited through diverse forms. Sabotage, partisan groups, espionage, revolts and riots are all examples of this kind of resistance. Armed resisters aim at either liberating themselves or putting an end to a genocide. While victims might fight back to ensure their survival, they and non-victims alike may fight to oust the genocidal regime. However, whether due to lack of resources, insufficient training or insurmountable odds, those engaged in armed resistance will often perish.
