The main aim of this article is to analyze the protests which took place in the 21st century so the first two decades in the 21st century observed a great return of the mass protests into the streets of the world. This partly happened due to a drop in faith in politics, mass remilitarization which had a huge impact on our society and the politics due to which the protests have become a part of their political expression in which millions of people participate.

As we come to an end to the tempestuous decades of the protests taking place this would be the main subject of my article that what will the protests in 2020 take shape into? The protests which took place at the beginning of the 2000s again started to reflect an analysis of the financial system which was forged by the unanimity in the various sections of the society.

On one hand, if we analyze the first two decades of this century then we will find that it is floating with inequality along with a huge debt and deterioration of the working people. On the other hand, the parliamentary attempts in challenging these are showing really poor results. Therefore, we are suffering from a real deep catastrophe of representation.

Modern capitalism is unable to bring survival to many so it has combined itself with a critique of capitalism which is creating a situation where the people of society have to protest.

Keywords: Protest, Society, inequality, capitalism
