  1. Hi,

    I would like to say that I really appreciate all of the time and research that you all have put into this article. Thank you for doing such a fantastic job.

    After doing some research myself on peaceful protesting, protected by the first amendment, I went online to see if there were statistics that categorized the different kinds of protests in percentages, such as violent protests, marches, petitions, or other protests that may be overly aggressive that may include malice, such as, hate speech or vulgarity.

    Anyway, I wanted to ask you all if you all had ever done a research like this or know where I can find one. If not, I think it would be a great study to do. If you all could get back to me with some information regarding this, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks a bunch!

  2. Hi there!

    I am a student at California Polytechnic State University and I am wondering if theres any chance you would considers sharing the data for this? I am doing a project about the misconceptions and repercussions of the heavy emphasis countries (US) have on increasing GDP, and how it connects to social unrest/cost. This data would really help me map out what I need to for my senior project, and I would love to share my results with you! Let me know as soon as possible and thank you for considering!

  3. I would love to see a map of the George Floyd protest locations in comparison to 2017. Perhaps this is something you could (or likely already are) look into.

  4. I am 78. I have heard about and watch videos of protests protests all my life. None of which the outcome didn’t include some type of violence, fires, injuries or death. I have a theory that could based on average age of those incidents. Especially those occurring since COVID – 19. In most conclusions, time and education could have been the prevention.

  5. Interesting but have question .
    How many people is required to be remotely considered protesters?
    For example if you need only a group of five people how many of that five people group is consider to be rather peaceful or non peaceful protesters? .
