The young people are among the most visible activists in a growing immigrant movement. Their push to focus pressure on the White House reflects deep frustration...

    Watch the video here Introducing pro-abortion HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to Georgetown’s graduating class of 2012, the Dean of the Georgetown Public Policy Institute (GPPI) said: “She works every day to improve access to health care for our nation’s children…” However, the dean ignored the truth:  Sebelius promotes pro-abortion policies that turn the womb into the most dangerous place for unborn children to live in America. On May 18, as Georgetown University prepared to honor the chief architect of the Obamacare contraception mandate, TFP Student Action volunteers were kicking into gear for a prayerful protest at America’s oldest Catholic...

    The summer “social protest season” opened Saturday night with a demonstration in Tel Aviv, attended by some 3,500 people. The demonstration in Rabin Square was the largest since last summer, when tens of thousands of protesters gathered in cities around the country demanding a more affordable cost of living.

Police arrested five protesters. Smaller protests took place in several other cities in Israel, and protests were also held in cities throughout Europe, including Spain,...

    Liberty University students and alumni are accusing the Christian school of violating its own teachings by asking Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints whose adherents are called Mormons, to deliver its 2012 commencement address. By Friday morning, more than 700 comments had been posted on the school's Facebook page about the Thursday announcement - a majority of them decidedly against the Chancellor Jerry Falwell Jr.’s invitation, citing that the school had taught them Mormonism isn’t part of the Christian faith. “I can’t support Romney and I am happy I decided...

    Lag Ba’Omer celebrations overlapped with political protest in northern Samaria on Wednesday night. Residents of the Israeli town of Avnei Hefetz and neighboring towns lit their traditional Lag Ba’Omer bonfires in the middle of the street this year in protest of discriminatory policies regarding travel in the region. The main road to Avnei Hefetz has been opened to Palestinian Authority traffic, as have many other roads that for years were Israeli-only due to terror concerns. However, PA-only roads have not been opened to Israelis. “If the security situation is so good, why don’t they open roads for Jews?” one resident...

    Acts of public protests are nothing new. From time to time, certain trigger issues will emerge which cause the general public to rally en masse for or against or both on the topic. The 1960’s were defined by both the anti-Vietnam War ‘hippie’ crowd, comprised mostly of the younger generation, and civil rights marches in the sometimes bloody battle for racial equality. The neon, Cold War ‘80’s saw protests against nuclear proliferation as well as its use as an energy source, and South Africa’s Apartheid policies, along with the starving in Ethiopia, were the main social causes. Even back before...
