I guess large numbers of people gathering peacefully has limited impact in itself. There’s virtual silence online about this. I’m not advocating non-peaceful protesting but considering the relative silence online on #WomensMarch compared to the literal million+ people out there right now…. and comparing it to smaller marches by #blm or even the actions of two people yesterday at the inauguration (broke two windows and kicked a garbage can)… …I can understand why some in the the #Occupy movements turned to #hacktivism and such and why not all protesters are satisfied with peaceful gatherings. Not advocating lawbreaking. But it’s more clear now why those that do, sometimes do.
