to protest, there would be rioting, bloodshed, arson, fatalities, firearms and cannons, barricades, insurrection, etc. that usually required the military being summoned to quell the disturbance.

Sure, it was inconvenient for the people trying to in the meantime make a living and in general go on about their business, but sometimes things changed for the better as a result and people felt it was worth being put out for a while.

Still inconvenient but nowadays nothing comes of it but for a few sound bites on the evening news and a few tweets with selfies.
