  • Peaceful protest is effective.

    I believe that peaceful protest is the most effective way to protest. When it comes down to it all the people who were the most known for protesting like MLK , Gandhi, Mother Teresa and Nelson Mandela. None of these leaders used violence. They used their words and knowledge and got their point across and changed the world.

  • Non violent protesting works because please listen better then in violent protesting.

    When you have a non violent protest pleople will listen to you more. If you show up with a gun and start telling people fallow me we can move faster and get it done faster it does not work.Ttherefore, our world needs to work on becoming non violent by trying to not be at war.

  • Violence wont help

    Unless you want to keep the anger going, you have to keep peace in between each other. Fighting back will just make people more, like if you punch someone, will they like you? Maybe if they're your friend, but probably not. Instead, if you were to keep neutral between each other, everything would be fine.

  • Nonviolent protests are affective.

    In the question that was asked do nonviolent peaceful protests work. I believe that they do because martin Luther king proved that they work. If they are handled in the right way and violence is not the answer to your problems. But in some cases it is. It just depends what topic or situation that you are protesting for.

  • Violence is never the answer.

    Peaceful protest is the easiest way to get someone to consider and actually think about it. MLK made a huge impact by just using his words instead of using violence to be heard. Everyone heard Martin Luther King and he pushed and got what he wanted. I would rather fight someone with words and intelligence than to fight with fists.

  • Nonviolence protest does work in my opinion.

    Martin Luther king Jr. Used nonviolence protest to change peoples views against unfair treatment to African American's. In my opinion this way of protest stops people from getting injured and can also demonstrate a more civilized way of gaining followers, and respect for their cause. A nonviolence protest can result in change because it helps show people that violence isn't needed and their words mean more than anything. Martin Luther was an example of that along with Gandhi . Those 2 historical figures fought for change and got it due to nonviolence protest.

  • Violence makes things worse. (by carla)

    Violence causes tension. Whether one side "wins" there will never be justice. Hurting people causes mental and physical damage. By talking things out peacefully we will come to a peaceful agreement eventually. Dr. MLK never used violence even once and as you can see he made a world changing impact.

  • Violence Doesn't work

    Violence causes people to loose support for a movement. Look at the Civil Rights Movement. During the violent protests people didn't like that protesters were shooting at them and it lost them protesters On the other hand, nonviolent protests gained more supporters. And all of you who are saying actions speak louder than words, nonviolence is an action. And, according to this website it works better statistically as well:

  • Cant fight fire with fire

    Peaceful protest is the most effective way to bring about change. Just look what Martin Luther King Jr did. He led protest in the south and he earned legislations respect. They were willing to hear what he had to say unlike Malcolm X, since the government considered him a criminal.

  • Violence doesn't work

    The modern mind does not like such talk. Violence is bad all violence or so we have been led to believe. From most angles it appears a laudable belief. But there is one angle that we keep missing. And in our current climate, it is a crucial one. So don't vote VIOLENCE!!!!!!!! :( :( :(

  • You have to look from another perspective!

    Right we really don't learn from history there is no such thing as a peaceful protest. We are in a different era now, why people don't actually come up with solutions to problems it amazes me. No protest anymore has any substance. You can't just simply challenge a government like that. Why would the people in power take you seriously? They don't and this shows with the constant failure of public protests. It is a violent mindset to the government, hence it doesn't work. There is however a more effective way to solve things, if you want to change the world grow an organisation that works with the government. Not run by the government, but "with". Create policies and ideologies, stop chatting about it to your mate. Write it down. Tell me this would you ever listen to someone you hate? No. Then make friends with the enemy so to speak then you can actually negotiate and work towards making the world a better place. Simple.

  • Non-violence may use to work; it may not work now.

    People have grown too complacent. They want to avoid violence because they feel it is too extreme which is exactly why the system hasnt been fully fixed. Occupy Movements, Black Lives Matter Protests have not changed anything. Sure it raised alot of awareness, but things are still the same because people are afraid to cross that line. People still feel oppressed, cheated, and unsafe. And so will the Anti Trump rallies that are happening now; people have gotten hurt, some killed but it still isnt enough to light that spark that will spread to the whole nation to rise up. Of course non-violent protests get more supporters than violent ones, they will be viewed in a negative light if they openly support violent protests. But if you want revolutionary change, then you need to do more than march and shout. How can those that live up high hear you?

  • You cant have one without the other

    Even if it starts out peaceful, i may get offended of what you say so then it starts violence. A lot of things had made history bc of violence.

  • What's your threshold?

    Do we have to wait until every minutiae of our lives is mechanised, monetised, tamed, surveyed, regulated and geared towards increasing corporate profit before we can no longer take it? What is our threshold going to be before we fight back? As Jensen adds, ‘if you can’t or won’t give that threshold, why not?

I agree so much with the no section because no one would listen to you if you were peaceful, you have to be heard like libya who suffered for their country!
