Some organizers did their best to control the message of the march – like those “pledges of non-violence” back in the day – why is it always the victims of violence, of brutal, vicious, malicious violence, that have to “prove themselves” “non-violent”. Why don’t the police, and the ruling forces that command them – why don’t they have to pledge non-violence? Why do the people who are victims of injustice have to prove they are “responsible”, while their exploiters and oppressors are above scrutiny? The thought police were out to keep expressions of justified contempt for the institutions of oppression from being openly expressed. They met with resistance and their success was limited but they will have the cooperation of a compliant (corporate) media in their work.
