Transcription

I am convinced that nonviolent resistance is the most potent weapon available to oppressed people in their struggle for freedom and human dignity. It has a way of disarming the opponent; it exposes his moral defenses; it weakens his morale and at the same time it works on his conscience. This gives it power.
