Violence Is The Voice Of An Oppressed People


Martin Luther King in 1966 (in an interview on CBS) said “A riot is the language of the unheard” and in 1967 (in “Beyond Vietnam“) wrote “I could never again raise my voice against the violence of the oppressed in the ghettos without having first spoken clearly to the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today – my own government.” Misquoted and taken out of context, his words are used approvingly in this INLA/IRA mural.
