7 Places Most Likely to be Descended on by Protesters

2. Government Buildings

Government buildings, especially the White House, are primary targets for protesters.

Again, this is about sending a message that will be picked up by the media. Additionally, protests at these buildings have a greater chance of actually being seen by someone in the national or local government.

Whether they’re right or wrong, protesters believe that placing enough pressure on the government will cause positive changes to happen.

In some cases, this actually works. In many others, though, the protesters end up disillusioned by the system. When this happens, they become dangerous and more likely to turn into an angry mob. Steer clear of the entire mess to avoid being caught in a mob situation.
