In Latin it is where we can establish that the etymological origin of manifestation is found. Specifically, it derives from the word “manifestatio”, which is formed from the sum of several lexical components of that language:
-The noun “manus”, which is synonymous with “hand”.
-The adjective “festus”, which can be translated as “hostile”.
-The suffix “-cion”, which is used to indicate “action and effect”.

The term refers to act and consequence of manifesting or manifesting: express, expose, declare.

Among the words that can function as synonyms for a demonstration, we can highlight some such as exhibition, declaration, meeting, rally, protest, sit-in, march or parade, for example.

ManifestationManifestation is called public meeting that many times develops in March (that is, with a movement from one place to another). Those who participate in these meetings do so with the objective to protest or claim something.

The demonstrations, therefore, take place in sites of symbolic importance, such as the main square of a city or in front of the Congress. The people who attend the call intend to express their disagreement and exercise a Pressure before the authorities who can modify reality and provide a solution to the issue.

Suppose a child is killed by criminals. The case provokes outrage in the population and several non-governmental organizations decide to call a demonstration to demand that the rulers greater security. Thus thousands of women and men congregate in front of the Goverment house in a demonstration that raises this demand.

On many occasions, the demonstrations lead to acts of violence. This can be linked to the behavior of the human being in a crowd, to infiltrators who seek to generate chaos or to the repression of the security forces that prevent the development of the demonstration, for example.

Throughout history there have been demonstrations that are considered to have changed the course of it. Among them are these:
-The Demonstration or March on Washington. This took place on August 28, 1963 in the city that gives it its name. It was led by Martin Luther King and the goal was to end violence in the country and claim the same civil rights for whites as for people of color, including the right to vote.
-Storming of the Bastille. July 14, 1789 was when this manifestation and march of certain violence took place in Paris that was carried out by the armed people. Took the
Bastille, which was the symbol of the absolute monarchy, and that action led to the French Revolution.
-The demonstrations carried out by suffragettes in 1917 in Washington to demand the right to vote for women. And they achieved their purpose later.

It is important to note that the right To demonstrate is one of the pillars of democratic regimes. All citizens must be able to express their opinions without being persecuted for that. Demonstrations, however, should not violate other rights (such as the freedom to circulate on public roads).
