18 Of The Most Amazingly-Creative Protests Ever!

| Resist!

What does create long-lasting change, is changing the hearts and minds of the people, and changing the consciousness of society. This is done by connecting to them on both an emotional and a logical level, not by just expressing how angry you there. There is certainly plenty of value in large gatherings where people loudly express their views, but it will require a bit more creativity than that to really connect with people on a deeper level.

Most people think protests are aimless especially when they are mismanaged and get violent. Such protests instead lead to many socio-economic challenges, which create more problems than before.

However, if clever words and peaceful gestures are used for a protest, it gets more positive attention and hence may change the course of history. Traditionally, protests have been thought of as a way to demand change from the masters, but as we have seen throughout history, this rarely achieves long-lasting change.

Here are 18 of some of the most creative protests ever recorded in history:

    Bingo! …..

    I know it is said that “power concedes nothing without a demand, it never has, it never will” – but though demands are, indeed, necessary for change, they are not sufficient to produce it ….

    Street theater and street parties, sometimes with a sprinkling of celebrity activists do not a reform make. To free the world from the death, destruction and deprivation from the world’s mightiest military force, prodded by imperialists and ideologues, will require first reforming the idea and nature of reform.
