Protests are usually at the Pet Shop, Town, and Plaza and are hosted by pookie protesters. They come in groups of 2-10, and were not common in 2014, but they were in 2013 and 2012.
Sometimes protesters have a fight. This can be actual war, pookies hurting them, or just people reporting them. Sometimes other people or pookies say, "All pookies to Ski Lodge for safety!" This might cause the protesters to get angry, and they might hurt the pookies.
During protests, they might have a war. There is a video on YouTube showing a huge pookie fight. It has over 1,000 views and was a giant battle.
There is a 3/4 chance of pookies winning. The other quarter goes to the pookie protesters, sadly. To make protests, get a bunch of people and head into the Pet Shop and protest for about 5 minutes. After that, a fight will start. The bigger your group is, the better chance of winning it shall be!
