Not sure if this is the right section or not. The main subject of my book is an armed uprising against a totalitarian government, but I'm at a complete and total loss when it comes to what to call these people. (Although the government would obviously be inclined to call them "terrorists") Despite being to most accurate term I can think of, the word "resistance" is unbelievably cliché to the farthest of extremes (if I had a dime for every time I've heard it, I could almost fund a resistance!). "Rebel" isn't much better - Star Wars beat that one to death. "Revolutionary" is a rather clunky and cumbersome word, not to mention almost solely associated with the American Revolution. "Freedom Fighter"? Aside from being another clunky term, it also sounds cheesy, and is typically used in a joking manner anyway. I'm lost. As far as I know, those are the only words that exist for such a concept, and none of them are particularly good choices. Does anyone have any better ideas?
