Video clip highlights Marv Davidov’s lifetime philosophy of social justice activism

Longtime Minnesota peace activist Marv Davidov died last weekend at age 80.

He spoke with me on camera during a Sept. 2, 2008, protest rally at the Minnesota State Capitol held during the Republican National Convention.

In this clip, Davidov — who was profiled by MinnPost’s Doug Grow last year — speaks about the importance of activism and nonviolent protest in the name of peace and social justice.

    When I moved to Minnesota in the 1980’s, Mr. Davidov was a regular visible fixture in progressive political advocacy. I dodn’t know him personally, but it seemed he was one of those guys who was a lunch pail advocate, showing up for work every day while knowing that it was to be a long struggle. And he did. What ever you think of his policy preferences, he represented himself and his views with dignity and class to my understanding. That’s to be admired. RIP.
