4. A problem I notice
Edited on Wed Mar-23-05 06:58 PM by Dave Reynolds
is that so few people actually wish to engage in civil disobedience because they will get arrested. So the cops grab a couple of folks or the organizers and everybody scatters.

In that case, IMO, the protest was worthless. Just standing with a sign shouting is a good way to be ignored, just look at the guys with the "The End is Near" signs..

On edit: There are no trees or mountains in ANWR, so no eagles either. I dislike nit-picking, but people do notice these factual errors with regards to protests. (Kinda like the "morans" guy.)
