Yesterday: A day of protest in the World
Reading various news websites I found that yesterday June 12th, was a day of protest in several places in our little world.
Of course, there will be many more marches and protest that I have not heard. If you want you can compartila in the comments.
Now, I wonder, protest as a tool to bring about change, it serves? Or is the only way to make visible a problem; where the mass media are influential in this approach? The mass media are accomplices of power, not allowing more direct action?
