    Riot

    Hi again!

    Does a riot necessarily involve violence?

    If not, could you give an example of a non violent riot?

    Re: Riot

    A riot is essentially violent - unless it is being used as a slang term: "the party was a riot" = it was terrific fun.

    You can have a non-violent demonstration.
