5. I believe protests and demonstrations are effective and
need to be continued. When people see others going out of their way to make a political statement, it gives them a reason to examine their own beliefs, whether they be pro or con. If observers are sympathetic to the cause, it allows them to feel valid and not alone in their thinking. It also keeps the matter in the public view and tells those in power that they cannot continue to do their dirty deeds unchallenged.
