Protesters/agitators typically deny violence when acts aren’t committed against person(s). I’ve seen enough of it locally. Destruction of property is completely justified to them. There’s no point in trying to level with these types if you encounter them online.Violence doesn't mean "directed at people" - it means "use of destructive physical force" against a person or thing.
Considering how much damage they did, starting with throwing bricks through windows - yes, I would call it violence.
It was actually bordering on terrorism, given that it was a planned violent act that they even left a note detailing that they did it specifically to intimidate them.
