|Protest By Obstruction|
Protesting something by attaching yourself to it
Truth in Television, probably. When someone wants to protest something, usually the destruction of a tree or piece of property, they'll often chain themselves to that thing, or otherwise get in the way of whatever they're protesting. Needs a Better Description. Examples:
- In Dan Vs. "Burgerphile", Dan shackles himself to the front registers of the eponymous fast food restaurant when the manager refuses to correct his order.
- In one episode of The Thin Blue Line, the officers go to break up a group protesting the building of a bypass. Officer Goody encounters one protester who has tied herself to a tree, and ends up joining her.
