What should we do to still be able to protest during covid-19

Featured Image: Protest 2

i think we could use social media to protest and show our opinion on things as we need to be able to protest no matter what so that our voice can be heard and we can spread the message of what we think is important and what we think should change.

My idea of a way to be able to protest during covid-19 is an app, this app is a bit like the hub be we have millons of different issues you can start a new one or you can comment on someone elses and there will be a button you press if you agree with this protest and you think something should be done about it by the governament. This app is for everbody in the world and you chose a language you will only be able to see things in that language and you can protest with anybody around the world! We can also post things on social media about our opinon of things. Covid-19 has made it really hard for people to protest but we should do everything we can to fight for what we belive in and be able to make a difference in our world and fight for our rights.

    What a fantastic idea creative_lemon! I have awarded you a star for problem-solving and creativity. I wonder if anyone else has ideas about how problems with protest could be overcome with a little creativity?

    We could maybe put up some posters around that say ''BLM'' or ''THERES NO PLANET B'' Or anything else about protest.

    Even if they want to do a march or a proper protest, they need to wear a mask, maintain social distancing and even bring some hand sanitizers! Those are some basic rules that we need to do even if we are not in a protest.

    Amazing Post! Good Job!

        Take a look at the Session 2 recap in our announcements and see if you can find the answer, committed_banjo.

    I think they should be able protest because if they don't think something is right they should have the rights to brake the covid rules

    I agree, I think we should just protest on social media because there's no need to destroy peoples properties but at the same time some things can hurt people mentally. There are many people out there and you might not know what they're going through

      I disagree with you, remarkable_knowledge because you said that, “there's no need to destroy peoples properties but at the same time some things can hurt people so that it affects them mentally”. In our previous sessions we’ve learnt that not ALL protests do that, only riot and sometimes civil disobedience.
      Protests such as march and activism don’t always include injuries or destruction, they can be sometimes peaceful and calm too. Again, that also depends on what ‘kind of crowd’ is running the march, such as ill-mannered people, and then there are decent, sensible and considerate people.

        Very good point, discreet_drum. It is really important to not assume that all people within a group will think or behave the same way.

    But be aware that not all of us have access to social media

    I agree with you marvellous_melon because, if you put it on social media, everyone will get their opinions read and acknowledged, and will still be safe from the virus.

    Another way you could spread the message of ‘information on how to protest during covid app’, is to show it on eye-catching advertisements on other apps where most likely teenagers and grown-ups will browse and see, because they are the type of people who you think will be protesting.
    If you put persuading adverts on apps that have music and art, then they’ll get more interested and will decide to check the app out.

    I find it’s more useful and quick to share things on social media because then the message will spread out faster to all age group audiences anyway, because as soon as people see it, they might want to tell other people about it as well, other apps such as colouring apps, language apps and many more.


    You could also share how to protest during covid by displaying noticeable posters with rules to protest during covid so that they can protest and be safe at the same time.

    In my eyes protest can be done in different ways but a lot of them are being shut down due to corona so we can still protest on social media as most people have it although many don't it seems to be the best option to stop the spread
