Political Demonstrations and Rallies- Your Guide to Protecting Them: So, there’s no doubt that an excellent political demonstration can make all the difference in making sure that people understand the message you want to put out. Parties and figures have been taking to podiums at arenas and public spaces to make sure that they’re keeping people on their side. 

However, these political demonstrations have always had an element of risk to them. This is not unique to any one culture or country, as a result it is so important to make sure that you have protection against all kinds of different options, and this means that we’re going to be taking a look at drones. 

Political Demonstrations: So, What’s the Problem?

First and foremost, we’re going to be taking a look at some of the different options when it comes to political demonstrations. These events are always going to be a prime target for people who don’t agree with the people who are taking part, or who want to make their own political statements.

High profile instances of drones impacting on demonstrations or rallies are September 15th 2013, Dresden, a protester placed a drone within a few feet of the German Chancellor and Defence Secretary at a political rally. August 4th 2018, Caracus, terrorists exploded two drones near the Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro at a public event. 

People will look to disrupt such events for various reasons, and this does open up the potential for so many different people to try and sabotage a rally or demonstration to either protest against the event or due to a completely separate agenda. There are many ways that this can be accomplished, and we’re going to be focusing on one particular area that you might have thought about. We know that it’s crossed our minds more than once. 

Political Demonstrations: Drones – The Issues

So of course, we’re going to be taking a look at some of the issues surrounding drones and how they might be able to cause havoc for people who are trying to conduct a political demonstration or rally. 

Of course, the obvious problems that you have to watch out for is the idea of harassment and bother. There are so many different ways in which a drone could disrupt the entire event, and irritate the people who are conducting it. 

It’s also worth considering that there are other ways in which a drone might cause an issue for the people attending and participating in these types of events. Political extremists are capable and determined, and there’s no telling what people might do. They might attempt to drop a terrorist device, and they might try and cause mayhem by crashing into something, there’s no way to predict what’s going to happen, which is why they’re such potent threats.
