Power and Protest

Black Lives Matter activists and allies celebrate the removal of a statue of Edward Colston, a notorious 17th century slave trader, from its plinth in Bristol, England .

Disruption is at the heart of civil resistance, as long as it does not turn to violence. See Property Damage, Violence, Nonviolent Action, and Strategy by Tom Hastings in our July-September issue (with thanks to the International Center on Nonviolent Conflict, the original publishers) comment
