    Development of interest groups and methods used to influence decisions:- Development of interest groups and methods used to influence decisions. An interest group attempts to influence the making or implementing or administering of government decisions. Interest groups range in size and issues. There are large world wide groups that have core charters, but work within local communities helping with issues that come under the core values of the group, these include Greenpeace, The Wilderness Society and The World Wide Fund for Nature. 1. Direct action - picketing, strikes, blockades, marches, demonstrations, protest, boycotts, go slow and bans. 2. Political strikes - not used to improve working conditions but to protest against political decisions. 3. Lobbying - can be conducted directly by interest groups, or by employing professional lobbyists who have access to government ministers. 4. Petitions and letters. 5. Use of media - usually only wealthy groups can afford paid advertising. Editorials and reports tend to be more sympathetic to groups representing commercial interests.
