    Protests and Movements
    Protests started out as small gatherings in the most populated parts of a town, which allowed the issues raised by the protesters to be seen by more people, and thus raise support for their cause. Today, protests can be a petition, a sit in, a boycott and more. The people, and thus the culture, of these different protests can change. So, in discussing what protest culture is, it is important to establish what a protest is. Protests are, to give a very broad definition, an event in which people who disagree with a person or institution regarding one or more issues seek to circumvent the established means of change in order to change laws, social norms, or other established rules regarding those issues. Under this definition, everything from peasant riots to online petitions is covered. However, that is not it for this section, aspects of a protest need to be covered as well. Protests are often connected events, and a series of connected protests around one or more common (related) issues is called a movement. Beyond that, protests also come in different shapes and sizes, and the atmosphere of the protest can vary depending on who is going to the protest, and who is going depends entirely upon the structure of the specific protest and the movement that it is a part of (if there is a movement).
    Camps and Infighting
    Once a movement reaches a certain size, camps start to appear. Camps are comprised of people who all agree on what the issue that needs protesting is, but differ on what needs to be done about it. For instance, in the civil rights movement, black nationalists wanted black individuals to control their own neighborhoods, while black separatists wanted a separate ethnic state for black people. Both of these groups agreed that the total political and economic control that white people had over black communities was worth protesting, but they had their own separate perspective on how to solve the issue at hand. The size of a movement can be determined upon the existence of camps. It is important to note here the practice known as infighting, in which members of separate camps in a movement openly disagree with each other. Infighting can be helpful, as it shows independent outsiders that the protest is large enough to have separate camps, which can be helpful in the early portions of a movement. However, size is not a measure of strength, and too much infighting can weaken the movement by moving focus away from the issue and towards the infighting. For example, A large portion of Americans believe that gun laws in this country are not strict enough, and have gathered to protest on many an occasion. But there are many different opinions on what the specific stricter laws should be. There are some that say only semi-automatic weaponry should be banned, others believe that it is more important to focus on background checks, and some think that no private individual should own a gun and I have only scratched the surface of how many different opinions exist. Anytime a gun control bill is passed favoring one of the camps, the others criticize it, and since politicians dislike having people mad at them, those criticisms often discourage politicians from pushing more laws. So, despite being a large movement, the American gun control movement is rather weak due to the infighting.
    Protest organizations, Centralization, and Accessibility
    Often, a movement can grow large enough that specific protest organizations appear. Protest organizations are organizations that exist purely to plan protest or otherwise help in regards to one or more issues (usually one). Labor unions and PETA are both large protest organizations, but smaller ones can exist. Protest organizations are everywhere, and are responsible for many protest that happen by acquiring a permit to protest, advertising for it, and more. A protest that was organized by a protest organization can have levels of centralization. In essence, centralization is the level of control a protest organization has over the protest itself. Centralization is a concept that mostly applies to larger protest organizations. For instance, in a strike, a strike is called by the union, and the union can decide when it starts and ends, where it takes place. Due to the level of control that a union has over a strike, a strike can be called a highly centralized protest. Centralization doesn't work well as a concept on a local level because all protest organized by a local protest organization would be highly centralized. A local protest organization already does all of the local organizing, the where, when, and how, but a larger protest organization has the option to not control all of this. For example, a large protest organization has the ability to call for a protest, then have little to do with it afterwards. Accessibility is also important when discussing protest organizations. In order to be a member of a labor union, one must be a member of that profession. This can mean years of training. Contrast that with an organization such as Antifa. There is no barrier to entry when it concerns who can claim to be a member.
    Sympathetic protests
    Now, onto different types of protests that one can attend. Sympathetic protests are protests designed to evoke sympathy, and increase the credibility of a movement. Rarely is there violence at a sympathetic protest. A notable example of a sympathetic protest is the march on Washington. It was a televised event that ran counter to the other protests aired on T.V. in that no violent action was taken by the police or the protesters, and the protesters were able to speak their message without their message being connected to a violent event. The march helped to sway public opinion, and gave the civil rights movement a clear goal. This result is common in sympathetic protests, though not usually so effective. Sympathetic protests have the effect of increasing public opinion of the movement, increasing the membership of the movement, and gathers together a semblance of unity within the movement.
    Desperate protests
    If there exists a sympathetic protest, then there must also exist a non-sympathetic protest. A protest not designed to increase public opinion. If the purpose of a sympathetic protest is to increase unity, than the purpose of a desperate protest is to turn that unity into strength to fight for the movement. In a desperate protest, the protesters show that they are willing to face challenges and make sacrifices. To keep with the civil rights movement example, the protests that most often occurred were ones in which the protesters faced violence and imprisonment. Yet people still protested. The protests in which people were beaten by police showed that the protesters were willing to be beaten by police to get what they wanted, which scares people who are in positions of power. The civil rights bill was passed partly because politicians feared that if it didn't pass, there would be riots or even a revolution. That is the purpose of a desperate protest, to scare the opposition into submission. A desperate protest can also increase support for the movement if the methods used to suppress the protest are wildly disproportionate to the methods used by the protesters which is why non-violent protest works only when there is a possibility of violent retaliation against the protesters, because otherwise it would be a sympathetic protest.
    All of the above is important, but no protest or movement would be complete without a target. Direct action

    Direct Action: Direct protests are protests that are targeting the issue directly. For example, when the labor movement was just getting started, the most effective gains were after taking direct action against the employer instead of passing labor laws, since those laws were often ignored or ineffective. Strives are a form of direct action.

    designed to evoke sympathy, and increase the credibility of thea movement. The march on WashingtonRarely is there violence at a perfectsympathetic protest. A notable example of this.

    There are also various methods that protests use in order to achieve change.
    target. Direct action
    Direct Action: Direct protests are protests that are targeting the issue directly. For example, when the labor movement was just getting started, the most effective gains were after taking direct action against the employer instead of passing labor laws, since those laws were often ignored or ineffective. Strives are a form of direct action.
    Indirect Action: Protests designed to get someone else to do the fighting for you. Voting is a form of indirect protest, as you are voting for someone else to take direct action. Any protest to get a representative to vote a certain way is an indirect protest.
    Sympathetic protests: Protests designed to increase the credibility of the movement. The march on Washington is a perfect example of this. There were no violent actions taken at the march on either side, Dr. King spoke his famous "I Have a Dream" Speech, which showed the CR movement in a more sympathetic light. It caused public opinion to sway in the direction of (but not in the favor of (it wasn't completely successful)) the CR movement, and caused more people to want to join the protests. In essence, sympathetic protests are designed to increase the numbers of protesters in total, and they attempt to gather the existing protesters into one cohesive camp, instead of the divided camps.
    Desperate protests: If the purpose of the Sympathetic protest is to increase the unity of a movement, a desperate protest is one in which the unity is turned to strength to show the desperation. Structures of power stay in place unless the people at the top are scared, and these protests show that the people who participate in them are willing to sacrifice in order to get change, which scares people in power. Keeping with the example of the CR movement, these protests are the ones in which people were attacked with hoses, and the existence of the Black Panther movement is an example of a desperate protest.

    Protesting is an important part of world history, especially so in the last few centuries. In the 1800s, in the early days of the labor movement, protest gave the people of many nations the right to a weekend, freedom from child labor, and other benefits. In the turbulent 1960s, protests helped to end the Vietnam war, enact civil rights laws, and more. Today, that legacy of protest continues, from the black lives matter movement, to occupy wall street. Popular protests were responsible for all of those changes to society and law. However, no protest would be incomplete without the participants; after all, without them there would not be a protest. However, the lives lived by the protesters are rarely publicly commented on, the common traditions and values held by most protesters unstated.

    Introduction
    Protesting is an important part of world history, especially so in the last few centuries. In the 1800s, in the early days of the labor movement, protest gave the people of many nations the right to a weekend, freedom from child labor, and other benefits. In the turbulent 1960s, protests helped to end the Vietnam war, enact civil rights laws, and more. Today, that legacy of protest continues, from the black lives matter movement, to occupy wall street. Popular protests were responsible for all of those changes to society and law. However, no protest would be incomplete without the participants; after all, without them there would not be a protest. However, the lives lived by the protesters are rarely publicly commented on, the common traditions and values held by most protesters unstated. Here, I use my definition of protest, and several other concepts to analyze protests of the past and now, to see what culture protests have or have had in the past. A surprising amount of information can be inferred about an individual by the type of protest that they attend.
