Martin Luther King, Jr. on Non-Violence

"As I have walked among the desperate, rejected and angry young men I have told them that Molotov cocktails and rifles would not solve their problems. I have tried to offer them my deepest compassion while maintaining my conviction that social change comes most meaningfully through nonviolent action."

-- The Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., April 4, 1967, Riverside Church in New York

Interesting that supporters of the ALF often accredit themselves as MLK Jr.s of the AR movement.
