If I were the peace "activist", there would appear to be about four possible responses to take to the above.
1. Walk away (muttering whatever under my breath)
2. Try and punch you back and then, if you run off, find your friends and relatives and punch them by way of discouraging you from punching me
3. Get together with my best friend and use a couple of iron bars to beat to a pulp some guy that I don't like and that I think you were
talking to earlier. And if anyone gets between us, we just knock them out of the way.
4. Call the police and have you arrested for assault.
Option 1 would work well in the scenario of a march but not so well if you followed me home and kept punching me there (to make the obvious extension to your analogy).
Option 2 might initially discourage you from punching me again but if one of the people I punched were your mother or kid brother, you might forget that I was bigger than you and come back to punch me again harder. Plus, of course, your brothers/sisters/father would now be more
than annoyed with me and a couple might decide that I deserved to get punched for punching your mother even though they thought you were
stupid for starting the whole thing in the first place. Then I'd have to punch your brothers and sisters, unless they ran away, in which case
I could pour brake fluid on their car, except oops that was their neighbour's car so now she's p*ssed off at me. And so on and so on.
Option 3 is of course the obvious course to take and is why the current Operation Iraqi Liberation will be such a stupendous success.
Option 4 would work in any society that I want to live in. But I suppose the police are ineffective because ... um ... we refuse to join
them or to pay them.
Help me out here if you had a better solution for what the poor peace activist is to do except realise the futility of not seeing the world
from your point of view (which gets her punched again anyway).

I agree. I would add "in the same way" to your statement.
