this is actually a perfect example of what gelderloos talks about with regards to violent vs non-violent tactics. not that they are non-violent but that they are only non-violent. for various reasons, we have to make use of all tactics and options. not everyone is comfortable or has the ability to confront corporations or people (not the same) with "violence".

the key is that we all have each others backs, the violent for the non-violent and the non-violent for the violent. that's what is meant by the "failure of non-violence" that they insist on only one way of doing things and they abandon those that resort to other tactics and methods, even when those are used to protect the non-violent sections. it's not that we all have to act violently but that we have to support one another, otherwise we will continue to fail.
