If so, what was your experience like? 2. Do you believe that violent or non-violent protests are more effective at achieving goals of the movement? 3. What social issue is so important to you that you would be willing to participate in a protest? Why is it an important issue? 4.What factors would contribute to go and what factors might prevent you from attending? 5. What are the steps that a social movement must take to become successful? 6. Do you believe that police departments should be present at protests in an effort to stop them or to ensure that people are allowed to express their view freely? 7. People praise Gandhi and MLK Jr. for their non-violent protest; however, would their campaigns have been successful without the background of violence they had? 8. Does aggressive or peaceful protest create more/better martyrs? 9. Do protesters against activities in foreign countries always understand what they are protesting? When they demand their governments cut trade connections/aid and force companies to stop doing business, do they know what the outcome could be?
