  • Activists are patriots

    Often activists are believed to be dissidents who actively challenge and sometimes make fun of their country's policy, military forces, social institutions. But what if we take a deeper look on this people? We shall notice that they are real patriots who cannot stay aside when their community undergoes encounters, when external forces agitate the passions of society, when tyrannical regime reigns.

    It is much harder and more difficult than just sit at home and praise the President, the army, the policy, saying that there are no problems around. Dissident - in my view - is much more patriot than a person that habitually tells sweet speeches about his or her country, but does nothing to show the right way to solve a problem. That is why we need to take care about the safe of activists.

  • Drive them to an island

    Yes kick them and all the fucking Muslim freaks out of Canada I say feed them to the Sharks and kill all the muslimns they seem to be killing us white people so kick them out of my country I was born here get rid of them now I hate them wish them and their stupid God dead meat

  • Yes but only if it is peaceful activism.

    Yes. But we also need to think about the fact that people sometimes end up needing protection from activists. Ferguson was an example of this. More can always be done to protect things, but there also has to be a cut off point if activism turns into a riot. I think that no matter what, police will always be seen as bad when interfering in a protest even if that protest turns violent and because of this, there needs to be a clear distinction of when protesters are no longer protesters and when their assembly is no longer peaceful. This is necessary when talking about increasing protections for protesters, because such protections would logically include limits on law enforcement's ability to control and restrain protesters. These protections would be a good thing, because peaceful assembly must be protected but only so long as it does not stop being peaceful. If it becomes a danger to the public, then the police have to do their job of protecting that public. So there would be a difficult balance here and the problem is that if you give activists an inch, they will take a mile and demand that their protests be respected even when those protests are actually riots. There is a certain sense of entitlement in activist culture. They like to see how far they can push things, and I think that if policy for more protection is to be brought to the table, then there would have to be some mention of when peaceful assembly is no longer peaceful and thus able to be treated like a danger to the wider public. Large groups can be deadly. This is shown every black Friday. And those are just shoppers. When all within a large group are filed with anger or discontent then that only compounds the danger, and at that point the group needs to be treated as dangerous.

  • Yes but I feel it will never happen

    I think it should but the government, no society as a whole looks down on free speech, if i want to make the statement "gays are horrible people" you should not take that to offence you should challenge that view with a debate as i am sure most people here are aware of.

  • Activists are people too

    Of course, more can be done to protect activists. They are just opinionated people who are trying to use their freedom of speech. Let them. It's their right to protest and fix all that's broken. As long as they do not get violent there isn't a problem. Don't attack or arrest them for simply being open minded and opionated, it's what are country was built on.

  • Yes of course.

    Unless.... The "activists" are people who believe in God, or who believe that being white does not necessarily mean that someone is "privileged" or "evil," or that "women's rights" should apply to all women, regardless of their stage in life, or that you have no legal obligation to redistribute your possessions simply because someone next to you doesn't have as much as you... In which case, society would say "**** those people, put them in jail, kick them in the crotch, and spit on their face."

  • Yes, I believe that more can be done to protect the lives of activists.

    Yes, I believe that more can be done to protect the lives of activists because in a democracy, these individuals are exercising their rights and standing up for what they believe in. Activists often risk their lives for their cause and more needs to be done to ensure that they are safe.

  • More can be done to protect lives of activists.

    Yes, I believe that more can be done to protect the lives of activists. Even though everyone will not agree, people should still be allowed to feel how they feel and appropriately express it. If a person experiences violence from a person who disagrees with them, then the penalties for these crimes being raised should lower the amount of these incidents.

  • Yes more could be done to protect them

    Activists are paying with their life to protect various things. We need to extend protection to the besieged human rights activists and their organizations. We need to explore the untried strategies and tactics for the same. These organizations and activists are vital to the attainment and maintenance if political order and hence more could be done to protect the lives of activists

  • Yes activists lives should be protected

    I think activists lives should be protected because they are just people who want to make a difference in there country rather than other people who just ignore the problem and expect it to get better.

    Also they are usually doing peaceful protesting so there is no reason to endanger the lives of people who are not doing anything wrong and, it just shows how corrupt the government is that it goes out of its way to silence the voices of people who want make a difference in the policies of there country

  • Yes but I feel it will never happen

    I think it should but the government, no society as a whole looks down on free speech, if i want to make the statement "gays are horrible people" you should not take that to offence you should challenge that view with a debate as i am sure most people here are aware of.

  • Donald trump don't vote

    Ha ah ah ah ah ah h a h ha ah ah ha ah ah ha ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ha ah ah ha ha ha ah ah ah ha ah ah ha h ah ha h ah ah ah ah ha ha ah ah ah ah ah ah ha ah ah ha ha

  • Nothing to do.

    Here, in the U.S., we already have laws to protect peaceful protests. Problem is, protests don't always stay peaceful.
    There is not much, if anything, we can do about rights in other countries. It would be contradictory if we forced other countries to allow freedom of speech. The article was a bit vague as to the circumstances so it's hard to say if the protesters did anything to warrant the actions taken against them.
    A problem with protesting is that it too is an escalation of aggression. When one side increase aggression, the opposing side usually responds with escalating it. This back and forth escalation tends to occur rapidly and before you know it, violence breaks out. Hypothetical: Group A peacefully holds signs near business B to protest their actions. People that support business B enter anyway. Group A starts to yell at Group B. Group B yells back. Next thing you know, a fight breaks out and of course people are hurt on both sides.

How about doing more to save the lives of the unborn children they are so eager to murder?
