Like the description says, just beat the campaign without killing civilians.

Although I didn't kill any on my playthrough, off the top of my head there are a few areas where one should be careful:

1: The ghetto/slum car chase (lots of civilians in the narrow alleys)
2: The disco club (very crowded during a shootout on the dance floor)
3: The village/marketplace in Juarez - civilians running around everywhere.
4: Juan's hacienda - lots of strippers hiding in side rooms where you have to duck into to avoid suppressive fire (I had to reload here).

Note: If you do shoot a civilian, immediately reload the last checkpoint. I killed one on the last level and unlocked this achievement by doing just that.

Note: Be careful with grenades. Some levels have a lot of civilians hanging around or cowering behind counters/tables/cars etc. A misplaced grenade could kill them without you knowing.

EDIT: As mentioned in comments, you only need to clear each -chapter- without killing civilians, this does not need to be in one playthrough. So as long as you remember which chapter you messed up on, you can replay it later and clear it without civilian kills for the achievement to unlock.

If people encounter more trouble spots please inform me of them via PM or in comments.
