I still can't see that that's somehow wrong. As you and I have both said, there can be serious repercussions for demonstrating, even if you have every right to do so. Discrimination still happens and it looks like those employment protections you mention depend on where you live

So as an example, a gay man working for a homophobic employer would not be able to take part in a gay rights demonstration for fear that his employer would dismiss him should he appear on TV? I'm sure there are plenty of similar hypothetical situations where this can be considered a bad idea even where the government is not involved.
