What is the most popular theme for protest?

Hello! I'm analytical_sea, and today I will be discussing what the most popular theme for a protest is. BTW, I'm don't really know the technical word for what you are protesting about, but I'm calling it a 'theme' for a protest XD.

Are you talking about current issues, or past solved protests?

Im talking about current issues, still being protested for, problems still needing to be solved. People still protesting, still caring.

Ummm... I only know like one protest theme??

Below I'm going to list some research for my top two, and the websites I found the information from! :)

Racism:

This is probably my number one! Racism in it's simplest form, is treating people differently (e.g. Bullying, police stopping a person in the street, people not inviting them to play with there group) only because of there race. Note: The definition of race (I found this in a dictionar) is:

{noun: race; plural noun: races}

each of the major groupings into which humankind is considered (in various theories or contexts) to be divided on the basis of physical characteristics or shared ancestry.

"people of all races, colours, and creeds".

A big racism protest which has happened:

George Floyd Killing Protest;

Tens of thousands of people attended protests across the UK on Sunday – including one where a statue of a slave trader was pulled down – after a week in which growing numbers defied calls from politicians and police to avoid mass gatherings to rally against racial injustice.

In London, thousands gathered outside the US embassy in south London in solidarity with demonstrators in the United States, where protests against police violence and systemic racism sparked by the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis continued into a second weekend.

Protests have continued around the world as people took to the streets to show their support for the Black Lives Matter movement in the wake of the killing of George Floyd in Minnesota on May 25.The death of Floyd, a Black man killed by a white Minneapolis police officer pressing on his neck for almost nine minutes, sparked worldwide protests against racism and police brutality.n city after another. Back then, Richard Nixon seized on a message of “law and order.” He would restore normalcy by suppressing protest with the iron hand of the state. In return for his promise of pacification, Americans gave him the White House.

Climate Change:

This is a big one for eco, environment and animal lovers, like myself. Climate change is a long-term change in the average weather patterns that have come to define Earth’s local, regional and global climates. These changes have a broad range of observed effects that are synonymous with the term.

Changes observed in Earth’s climate since the early 20th century are primarily driven by human activities, particularly fossil fuel burning, which increases heat-trapping greenhouse gas levels in Earth’s atmosphere, raising Earth’s average surface temperature. These human-produced temperature increases are commonly referred to as global warming. Natural processes can also contribute to climate change, including internal variability (e.g., cyclical ocean patterns like El Niño, La Niña and the Pacific Decadal Oscillation) and external forcings (e.g., volcanic activity, changes in the Sun’s energy output, variations in Earth’s orbit).

A big climate change protest which has happened:

Gtreta Thunburg's Protest For Climate Change;

Swedish teen Greta Thunberg skips school for climate protest. In May 2018, aged 15, Greta won a climate change essay competition in a local newspaper.

Three months later, in August, she started protesting in front of the Swedish parliament building, vowing to continue until the Swedish government met the carbon emissions target agreed by world leaders in Paris, in 2015.

She held a sign that read "School Strike for Climate" and began regularly missing lessons to go on strike on Fridays, urging students around the world to join her.

Her protests went viral on social media and as support for her cause grew, other strikes started around the world, spreading with the hashtag #FridaysForFuture.

By December 2018, more than 20,000 students around the world had joined her in countries including Australia, the UK, Belgium, the US and Japan. She joined strikes around Europe, choosing to travel by train to limit her impact on the environment.
