: Unless it's in response to immediate violence, non-violence is the only viable tactic for demonstrations. Do you know what happens when demonstrators turn violent? 1) They get their asses kicked by superior police forces, and worse, 2) They lose the support of mainstream society, and rightfully so.

SDF: Demonstrators "turn violent"? We keep forgetting one of the main weapons of the Establishment, that is to say, AGENT PROVOCATEURS.

Meanwhile, THIS isn't violence? It's what the WTO protects!
