In this time of political action and global protest, what are the politics and ethics of militant resistance?

In Languages of the Unheard: Why Militant Protest is Good for DemocracyStephen D'Arcy uses the vivid examples of the Quebec Student Strike to the Mohawk land defence at Kanesatake to the Black Blocs at summit protests and attempts to build off the words of Dr. Martin Luther King that "riot is the language of the unheard."

Direct action on Line 9: Moving beyond Keystone and Northern Gateway

On the morning of June 20, 2013, a group of people walked onto the Canadian energy corporation Enbridge's North Westover pumping station and occupied the facility. They called this blockade "Swamp Line 9". The facility is part of what is called Line 9, a pipeline that moves oil west towards Sarnia and the refining facilities there. However, the industry has been engaged in an effort to slowly gain regulatory approval to reverse the pipeline, allowing it to carry tar sands oil east for refining or to the Atlantic coast for export.
