Forum Post: If it has not been done already, the OWS needs to publicly denounce the violent and destructive actions that took place in Oakland.

it is of the utmost importance for the protest movement to remain non-violent and the only way i see that this can happen is to make the public statement that the OWS movement does not support violence and the destruction of property in any form.
the other thing that peaceful protesters can do is to make citizens arrests upon those that are breaking this code of non-violence.
we must stay strong in solidarity on this point or we have already failed.
