The longtime peace activist, who died last weekend, talks about the importance of nonviolent protest at a 2008 Capitol rally.

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.
