Protest in UK

Why protest is always seen as something negative in the United Kingdom?

By Massimo Usai

In the last few days, some people have started to protest heavily on the roads of the UK.

Protest is always very controversial.

There are peaceful protests, and not so peaceful protests.

I believe that protests impact the basement of the culture of every nation in different ways.


Insulate Britain and the Extinction Rebellion are doing all they can to appeal to the sensibilities of the British people.


Unfortunately, the British people don’t use to protest.


It’s ok to protest for football, but they protest on Saturday from 10 to 4 pm for socially essential issues, as law in Britain said.


Not disturbing business is the only Bibble they believe it and doesn’t matter what will happen to the children or themselves.


Brexit is the typical example: They took away the right to live and work in 27 countries to millions of young people. Could you imagine something like that in France or Italy?


In England, millions of people protest against Brexit or the War in Iraq (on Saturday, of course), nothing changes.

Of course, now media try to take advantage and give the people on the road some big megaphone to create the controversial argument that will make more click on their website.


In a lot of cases, there is the Government beyond, so happy with those divisions.

Protest from Extinction Rebellion in London @massimoUsai

We know the reason why they inflict this violence on the protestors. They want to take those people off the streets, to split them apart from the public opinion.

That’s why people need to lean on each other for healing.

Even as things are burning down around us, our communities become a form of home.

We educate each other, take care of each other, support each other. It’s the opposite of what the system wants us to do.

They don’t want us to come together.
