Protest opportunity?

Discussion in 'Politics, Laws, Government & Insurance' at netrider.net.au started by Mouth, Sep 5, 2006.

  1. Hypothetically...
    Your in Melb, and have a *perfect* opportunity to protest directly against the current govt (at the very top of the pyramid!) over bike issues (levy, etc.) and could give a LOT of other riders the opportunity also, at short notice.
    Do you do it?
    Would you want jump on the bike one evening and join in, with only a few days notice?

  2. I would, but with just a few days notice I think the numbers would be very low, thus loosing the impact of the protest.

  3. Hypothetically ...
    The protest would be *high* profile, and much more notice would ensure that the opportunity would get removed.

  4. Depends on the issue and the nature of the 'protest',and whether or not I had something better to do. Protests might make the protesters feel better, but there is not a lot of evidence that they are effective except in a handful of extreme cases.

  5. I would, provided it was out of work hours. Thats the only proviso. I have a strong allegiance to my empoyers.

  11. As Moike said above, the usefulness would be subjective.
    But, the oportunity and it's presence is a great one.
    I guess I'm wondering if people would want to be notified, or just let it slide

  12. I would do everything possible to make it.
