â€œThere may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.â€? Elie Wiesel
We who in engage in nonviolent direct action are not the creators of tension. We merely bring to the surface the hidden tension that is already alive. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The voice of protest, of warning, of appeal is never more needed than when the clamor of fife and drum, echoed by the press and too often by the pulpit, is bidding all men fall in step and obey in silence the tyrannous word of command. Then, more than ever, it is the duty of the good citizen not to be silent. Charles Eliot Norton
To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men. Abraham Lincoln
Our tradition is one of protest and revolt, and it is stultifying to celebrate the rebels of the past while we silence the rebels of the present. Henry Steele Commager
Once a government is committed to the principle of silencing the voice of opposition, it has only one way to go, and that is down the path of increasingly repressive measures, until it becomes a source of terror to all its citizens and creates a country where everyone lives in fear. Harry S. Truman,
You can jail a Revolutionary, but you canâ€™t jail the Revolution. Huey P. Newton.
