the Repertoires of the Protest

Protest is defined in the sociology of social movements as a "resource of the powerless ...[protest forms] depend for success not upon direct utilization of power, but upon activating other groups to enter the political arena" (Lipsky 1965: 1). Protest uses the mass media as indirect channels of participation and allows alliances with more influential actors. In order to obtain a voice, social movements "employ methods of persuasion and coercion which are, more often than not, novel, unorthodox, dramatic and of questionable legitimacy" (Wilson 1973: 227). The same non-conventionality of protest allows those without power to be heard through the channels of the mass media. Large public demonstrations, disruptive direct actions or even symbolically innovative initiatives are those most capable of attracting the attention of public opinion.
