    Like every cause or protest that has ever started, as soon as you appease the leaders of said cause with a bribe or a job, or anything else, the protests, marches, or whatever else you want to call them, stops as if it never started. All is forgotten because one or two pockets are filled.

    People in the DR protesting that a coal fired power plant is being built. I suppose they would be fine without electricity.

    My impression is they are opposed to the bribes that the plant entailed,  not its existence

    There is an element of objection on environmental grounds too, because it's insane to build a coal-fired plant instead of investing in cleaner alternatives - but the main protest is about corruption.
