Protests I’d Like To See

The Cause:
A protest against stores charging us amounts that we do not have the denominations of coins for. (eg. $4.99).
If a country has ceased producing one and two cent coins then we should not be expected to make up the difference due to rounding up out of our own pocket.
Suggested Placard Slogan:
I’ve Got 99 Problems / More Dollars Than Sense.

The Cause:
A call for a government-funded scheme that gives out free curtains to low socio-economic families that hang ugly, eyesore bed sheets in their windows.
Not only would this raise the desirability of problem areas and attract investment and community growth, but it would cover up problems of poverty by making the government appear like they are actually trying to help.
Suggested Placard Slogan:
Give Pleats A Chance.

The Cause:
Introduce a tax on customers who are rude.
Likewise, this may extend to the implementation of discounts when dealing with poor service.
In a sense, forcibly making the world a better place.
Suggested Placard Slogan:
Manners Cost Nothing.

The Cause:
Encourage the use of public transport by introducing a Frequent Rider Points program.
Points could be exchanged for goods and services such as cheaper gym membership, discounted bills at supermarkets, free coffee at selected outlets, etc.
Suggested Placard Slogan:
Low Rider / They See Me Rollin’.

The Cause:
Making overfeeding a child be officially recognised as a form of abuse.
Childhood obesity is becoming an epidemic, despite it being a preventable outcome.
It was recently reported that a boy dubbed ‘The world’s fattest baby’ (An 8 month old Colombian child who holds the weight of an average 6 year old) is now having to undergo life-saving surgery due to one person who can only be described as ‘The world’s stupidest parent’.
Suggested Placard Slogan:
You Feed, We Bleed / Let Them Eat Hate / Wont Somebody Think Of The Children.

The Cause:
Scrap Christian-related holidays in place of more modern, inclusive holidays.
This could include suggestions such as National Day Off, Health Day, Personal Day, Friends and Family Day, Exchanging Crappy Gifts Day, etc.
Suggested Placard Slogan:
No More Breaks For Christ’s Sake.

The Cause:
A protest against paying for services which essentially do nothing.
This includes, but is not limited to, paying an account keeping fee to a bank, paying to leave your car unattended in a parking space, and paying an ATM fee to access your own money.
Suggested Placard Slogan:
Money For Nothing.

The Cause:
A call for the general public to stop idolising people who do not contribute to society, eg. The Kardashian Family.
Suggested Placard Slogan:
We Don’t Give A Krap.

  1. Encourage the use of public transport by introducing a Frequent Rider Points program.

    Australian public transport or at least the public transport swystem in bigger Australian cities has the reputation of being pretty substandard. So I don’t know whether it’s a good idea to wish that people start using it more often. Though maybe that could be a vlaid reason to start improving the system.

    This includes, but is not limited to, paying an account keeping fee to a bank, (…) and paying an ATM fee to access your own money.

    I’m now uncertain why Australia’s public transport has such an image problem but not Australia’s banks/financial sector.
    Do Australian banks really charge their customer for using the bank’s own ATM to withdraw money?
