A protest is the act of objecting, by words or action, to a policy, event, organization, or idea. The most common form of protest is through organized public demonstrations. Over the decades, people have protested wars, civil rights, government policies and polarizing events. Organized mass protest can fuel revolutions and bring about change, as we have seen with recent protests in the Middle East that have led to the toppling of government regimes.
