This group is beginning to get a lot of attention (even from CNN today which demonstrates the effectiveness of their method) and certainly some of their protests are targeting important problems.
Of course there is always a concern that the message will be lost in the publicity but this is at least a totally non-violent way to protest and make certain someone pays attention to what they are saying.
