To dream of seeing a protest represents your feelings about a situation not functioning as it’s supposed to be. It may also reflect you growing frustration with someone or feeling that you have been lied to. Alternatively, a protest in a dream may reflect you desire to take action or stand up for yourself. Feeling very upset about a need for serious change in some manner. Real life objections about something you or someone else doesn’t like.
Negatively, dreaming about protesting may reflect awareness of people who are upset with your actions. Anxiety about angry people whom you owe money to.
Example: A man dreamed of seeing protesters outside of a government gate. In waking life he was getting tired of being lied to by his father who kept delaying a big payment owed to him. He felt that action needed to be taken, but didn’t know how.
Example 2: A young man dreamed of seeing protesters in the distance. In waking life he was in serious financial trouble and felt that soon his bill collectors were going to get very angry with him.
