I was watching interviews of Russian protest activists and organizers and some of them convinced that frequent protests are not beneficial.
If you think about it: let's say within a week we get over 10,000 people and at any time only about 1,000 are present. So it appears like we only got 1,000 people. People also get tired, exhausted to occupy non-stop and might even get discouraged, plus all the harassment by cops, cold weather and prohibitions from sleeping at the location.
So, would it make more sense to just organize events like every week or every two weeks maybe on Saturday or Sunday so all the people would wait and be excited about it and come together even those people who are working and don't have the time constantly occupy, but would like to participate. It could be organized for example not to just stay at certain place, but walking trough popular places which would give more exposure.
- More exposure.
- More participation.
- Less exhausting for activists.
- More efficient resource allocation.
- People would be more excited to participate as they were waiting for the event.
- Cold weather wouldn't be a problem.
- Cleaning wouldn't be a problem.
- Eviction wouldn't be a problem.
- Loss of personal stuff like tent wouldn't be a problem.
- Would be easier to see our real strength.
- I'm sure there are more.
- 10s of thousands of people is impossible to arrest so even thouse who don't want to risk being arrested would still participate.
What do you think?
