"Online Petitions"

I agree with Ashley about online petitions. They allow people's voice to be heard and what is great about it that people that signed the petition could share it through social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. An example of an online petition website is https://www.change.org/ where anybody could make a petition on whatever issue they want to bring up in the public sphere. They are political protests because people that are signing the petition are asking for change and get rid of the status quo on issues. So in that sense, online petitions are a form of political protest.
