The alternative to violence is not reconciliation, it is  not peace, it is not love, all of which belong to categories of a different order. The alternative to violence is- and can only be- nonviolent action. Nonviolent action truly is of the same order as violence: it serves the very function that violence claims to serve; it sets in motion a strategic struggle against injustice; it aims to create a contest for power in favour of the oppressed, to get their rights recognized and respected. ~Jean-Marie Muller
