Why are so many people protesting?

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY VIDEO) — The number of mass protests around the world appear to be growing.

People in different parts of the world are increasingly expressing their discontent with their governments’ policies.

It’s difficult these days for us to report the news, without mentioning a protest somewhere in the world.

Many of the issues may be different –but they share a common theme at their core: corruption, injustice, climate change and human rights.

Protesters are challenging authorities –even in places where it was once considered unthinkable to do so.

But as much as their demands have varied, the outcomes have also changed.

Some have found success through their campaigns— others have not.

And officials are divided on how to address what appears to be a global phenomenon of protest movements.

So, what’s behind this growing demand to protest?
