I like protesters. In many cases they are the ones who are the disenfranchised doing what they do to get what they deserve. Protesting is one of the purest forms of democracy IMO, where the people band together to get their voices heard.
Most of the bigwigs get what they want quietly, by negotiating, bribing, lobbying, advertisements, etc. People who dont have these means have protesting. You dont need arms, you dont even need a voice. You just need to be there. Your presence itself is a symbol.
Estne volumen in toga, an solum tibi libet me videre?
