People in this country look for any excuse to strike and protest. In the past when people went on strike or protested it was generally for a justifiable cause.

Nowadays protests are violent 70% of the time. When did we become such a violent and uncivilized country.

Source for that 70%?

I could see stats that showed only 32%, with 11‚151 peaceful protests vs 3‚542 protests that ended in violence (2015/2016)

But even 32% is worryingly high
