But when you take a step back, I find it hilarious that the means of the protest is to do the opposite of what the protest is actually fighting for. Women pushed years ago for the right to work and being treated equally...so today some decide not to go to work. Other groups protest the "silence" of their group's footprint...by staying silent. Even a simple strike can be seen as silly if it doesn't work. In an effort to go forward, you have to undermine yourself and hope it works.
I'm not sure if this protest will "work" nor am I even sure what it's protesting. But I think it's important to keep all of history in context; if you're actively undermining the goals you had in the past...are you really working for a new goal, or just protesting to protest.
