Does protesting do any good?

An article in Sunday's Deseret Morning News says that Rocky Anderson will speak, if asked, at a rally when President Bush visits Salt Lake in August.
My question is, what good does staging a protest do? I personally haven't been involved in any protest. What do people who protest hope to accomplish? My guess is that they hope to get their faces on the T.V. This may bring publicity to their cause, but, that publicity isn't always good. In fact it makes some people think of you as "nutcakes."

What would the world be like if no one ever stood up for what they believed and said "I don't think this is okay!"?

Protests have made a difference. Enough people showed up to protest the NSL name change that the city council decided to do a poll and look into it further instead of changing the name then and there.
