Breaking Away from the ‘Protest Paradigm’
In the first four days of December:
Weeks of unrest by “yellow vest” protesters led France’s president to suspend the enactment of a fuel tax scheduled to begin Jan. 1;
UNC students protested the administration’s decision to relocate its “Silent Sam” monument, which honors North Carolina’s Confederate soldiers, to a new campus building;
Crowds of demonstrators disrupted traffic in Dublin, Ireland’s City Centre as part of long-running protests over the country’s housing crisis.
Protests aren’t common everywhere, but they are a regular part of the news diet. Whether you’re parachuting into Paris or a protest on the other side of the state, are there better approaches?
