Question: Do you think political protests serve any purpose in terms of creating change?

"Yes, I do. Well, I think that violent ones don't because they bring down the position they're tying to (help). But civil protests do bring change."

"Yeah, it helps to get the word out on their viewpoint, what they're backing or supporting."

"It kind of seems like compared to the '60s, the protesting doesn't have that much effect on anything. I think it's good that people are going out and expressing what they want to, but it doesn't seem to make a big an impact unless it's like the WTO in Seattle. That changed some things, but mostly now (protests) turn into crime sprees."

"It depends on how they're conducted, I think."

philosophy senior

"Yes, I do. It's the duty of citizens to protest if they don't like what their government is doing, because it's a quicker way to send a message than waiting for the next election."

"Of course. (Protesters) want to get their points across and make sure all the political leaders don't go and make all their own decisions before considering other people's choices."
