Oberlin Professor Defends Violent Protest: "We Actually See Greater Response By Elected Officials"

|

Via Citizen Free Press -- Oberlin Assistant Professor of Politics and Comparative American Studies Jenny Garcia: "Even when there’s violence, protests can make it a more salient issue and provide greater pressure on elected officials and candidates."

"Protests matters and when we see the destruction of buildings, when we see violence either by police or by protesters themselves we actually see greater response by elected officials… what we do know is that elected officials respond to pressure," she said.
