Stop the Violence!

Thanks to the Spillers who contributed to the 2 quiz-pics ; South Africa House in flames from the humungous Poll Tax riot and the furious Battle of Orgreave were the venues- this is the last before peace breaks out and is another from the period where Thatcher & her gang did their best to smash all forms of opposition & protest. For me it poses the question - where & when is violence justified? I love the end of Spike Lee's film "Do the right thing" where he posts 2 quotes - one from MLK and one from Malcolm X and just leaves you to ponder....i go with mr.X
"I don't even call it violence when it's in self defense; I call it intelligence."
Oooh - now that's hard to argue with...
