I've never really believed in protesting, simply because I've never been particularly passionate about the causes. However, it seems that with the recent tier 4-ing of the midlands and other regions, there is no end in sight to this misery. This leads me on to my question, I can no longer sit by and do nothing (like many others) as I see the normal way of life being usurped, but I'm also concerned that by protesting I'd be risking a lot for very little. There is also an element of fear within this conflict that I cannot account for.
I believe what I'm looking for is someone to offer advice to tip the scales.
