From the Boston Tea Party to the violent demonstrations in Minneapolis, Portland, and Rochester, protests have always served as a response to governmental oppression. The subjugation of rights, abuses of power and a disregard for basic civil liberties have led citizens to take action, with the goal of affecting social change with their words and deeds. This presentation focuses on the sociological variables that lead to protests and looting in America, the psychology behind these events, and the possibility of easing tensions while creating a more equitable America.
