Occupy Wall Street protesters in Philadelphia have managed to avoid violent clashes with city police, Annette John-Hall writes in her Philadelphia Inquirer column, because they have "kept their vow to exercise their First Amendment rights peacefully and orderly."

Give yourselves a hand, Occupy Philly. 

Or better yet, flash the world a peace sign. 

Because if there's one big thing that our local movement has taught us, it's that Martin Luther King Jr.'s template of nonviolent protest works.
