Peaceful protest is not silent protest. It does not require the absence of speeches, and of strong but respectful language. Nor does it require the absence of placards that others might view as dangerous to their opposing views.
Peaceful protest is protest that does not engage in the assault of others, or in the damage to property. It merely demands to be heard, to be acknowledged. If acknowledgement is not forthcoming, peaceful protest demands change. The Lord God Almighty is a God of peace.
The Lord God Almighty El Shaddai
