Protest Nation is a social network that puts events in the spotlight, not people. Here, protests have news feeds that contain event details, content shared by users, and relevant news articles because we want to be a useful tool. Our goal is to make it easier for people to find and engage in protests and get informed about the issues that caused them, because that is what a healthy society requires.


Look around you. These days, there are more and more people getting involved in issues that matter most to them. It's ordinary citizens taking extraordinary action that will change the world, and we want to be a part of that change.


Protest Nation officially came into being in 2004 as a wild idea. The domain protestnation.ca was purchased back in 2008; however, little was done until 2020. Development began on the platform as a final project for a masters program at the University of Calgary.


Protest Nation was officially concieved in Edmonton, Alberta. The development officially started in Calgary, Alberta.


Protest Nation is a privately owned organization and operates on money raised by donations.


Protest Nation was founded by Ben Witzaney.
