Effective Protest? I Say Yes
Two protesters were arrested and two others were thrown out of Great American Ball Park yesterday afternoon for holding large banners over the outfield wall with anti-racist/pro-immigrant messages during the Reds game against Arizona. No one was hurt, the message got out to good sized crowd, and media coverage was pretty positive. The two will likely plea out and take what should be very light punishment. As far as protests go, this was effective. It's not going to change the world mind you, but it hopefully will change some minds.
