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."
