Do protests need to be violent to work?
In my opinion protests dont need to be violent for many difrent reasons involving the police, injurys and the diffrence between riots and peacful protests although it is also quite efftive in diffrent ways.
police with riots
As riots are harmful and can cause immense distruption to the comunity. Eventhough riots are highly effective, they are unlike peacful protests (that will not harm anybody wich means the police will not get involved and cause catastrophe). Many people have been thrown behind bars becuase of riots but that will make the councile want to stop the riots. Thay probably means that you will get ehat you want.
Injurys and danger
Riots cause a lot of lethal danger to people becuase of fire and even tear sprey. Fights would go and on with the police and cars would have been set on fire wear the protests were takeing place. Unlike in peacful protests some people mightb be carrieng lethal weapens and screaming and swearing. If you get sevearly injured in a riot sirens will come blareing into the riot and the ambulace will come in with sheilds and will take you away.
If you compare the humble peacful protests then the threatning riots they are completly diffrent although they do have a few similaritys shared between them. For example both riots and protests are trying to spread a word to the world or government.Although one major difrence is that one is peacfull and one is filled with brutallity. Riots will cuase injurys and police might get involved alothough the peacfull protest is doing it well peacfully! Both are types of compltly diffrent protests.
Riots could involve police, injuries and are completely diffrent to over protests.
