Yes, I agree with this statement. Without that demand for freedom and the peaceful protests he initiated, the demands and the way they were put forth might have taken a far different turn. Change seldom happens without the demand of the voices of the oppressed. If you think about it, this statement can be applied to a broad range of topics from King's civil rights movement to workers movements for better conditions and increased pay.
