There is a difference between peacefully protesting and rioting. Peacefully protesting should be encouraged but rioting is not acceptable. It's not fair to others by damaging property or worse, putting the lives of those not involved in danger. Rioting doesn't even need a message. Remember the Vancouver riots? Just a bunch of fans being sore losers when their team lost.
@Jake518 You haven't been in many protests, haven't you? Do you know what happens to peaceful protests? They get dispersed and ignored.
Name one movement that reached its goals. because of a peaceful protest rather than the use of violent or nonviolent attacks/sabotage/boycots or the threat thereof. I'll spare you the effort: Not a single movement has accomplished its goals by peaceful protesting.
@Voidkom Martin Luther King ring a bell? Get educated then maybe you won't be a moron and defend riots. Like the L.A. riots which served no purpose except property damage and loss of human life.
@Voidkom @made_u_look And to add to your thought process, some protests aren't worth crap. Because society has to deem whether its worth the change. For example PETA they protest just about everything most of it is ludicrous. Now racial equality of social injustice was done with peaceful means a MAJORITY of time were there riots yea. But what got through were the peaceful debates and speeches. For woman s rights and African American rights. There wasn't looting or rioting for woman's rights.
@Voidkom @made_u_look Learning about someones struggles and achievements through peaceful protest, yes it takes someone with the mental capacity to see faults in a democratic government. Rioting in a violent nature with radical intent creates more animosity than a peaceful conclusion. You asked for one movement, I gave you one. Now your saying naming one isn't a enough? How about Gandhi, Tank man? You act like a violent child and start destroying someones place of work or home, guess what your not helping your cause your just pissing off sympathizers. But I guess radicals like yourself careless that's why you never get anywhere.
I'm sure there was also no riots back then, right? You think there was no sabotage or boycots back then? Here's a hint: Protests are worth shit.
