Yeah. It's called civil

Yeah. It's called civil DISOBEDIENCE because people are DISOBEYING something. If they just show up and protest, at best, they are disobeying free speech zones that the gov't sets up for peaceful protests. More likely, they are not disobeying anything. We look at the civil rights movement as a great movement now, but when it was going on, people were breaking the law by not moving to the back of the bus or by not going along with separate but equal. I'm sure they were not seen as popular figures by those in authority at the time.
