Putting on a demonstration can be challenging, but here in the U.S., we rarely run into the kinds of problems that protesters encounter in other parts of the world. Just ask our friends at PETA Asia about the difficulties that they sometimes face.
Earlier this year, Edward, a PETA Asia campaigner, was arrested before a planned KFC protest in Singapore. Not to be outdone, PETA Asia senior campaigner Ashley Fruno and a member of the South Korean group Coexistence of Animal Rights on Earth were recently detained by police in Seoul as they got out of a van and began a pro-vegetarian demonstration near the site of this week's G20 summit.
Don't worry, the daring duo is fine—although Ashley will likely be booted out of Korea soon. Fortunately, most of us don't have to worry about anything worse than occasional rain or rudeness when we hold a protest. For tips to make it easier, check this out.
