I think the best way for non-violent protest to work is when the protestors suffer violence themselves.

That was one of the great unwritten lessons of the civil rights movement, and has been one of the successes of OWS versus other left wing protests.

We all owe a debt of gratitude to the pepper spray manufacturers of America for getting this movement off the ground. The more they use, the more likely OWS will win.
