Although people shouldn't stop protesting, the governments will simply carry on doing what they like. e.g I don't believe the Poll Tax Riots actually achieved anything because I believe the Poll Tax was a deliberate ploy to first implement something really nasty so you can get the people to accept what you really want.

This might sound a little extreme, but I don't believe in protesting (in cities) on the basis that it costs us shitloads in tax payers money to employ hundreds of policemen to stand around all day (i.e. it costs loads even if its peaceful). Under my rules they're free to go and protest in a field though... if the Sky News chopper will follow it might be worth it.
