Time-Lapse Of Protests

This isn’t exactly, completely accurate, but is still fascinating to watch. It’s a time-lapse of all the protests in the world from 1979 until now.

It doesn’t show the politics of each protest, and so Tea Party rallies are included alongside Occupy actions. And:

“A cursory glance at the map would suggest that Kansas is the most restive state in the union, but really the frequent protests popping up somewhere near Wichita are every media mention of a protest in the United States that doesn’t specify a city (the same goes for that flickering dot north of Mongolia in Middle-of-Nowhere, Russia).”

It’s still worth a look though.
