    Everybody here is on target.

    I, too, would call it a demonstration which is synonymous with protest and a picket could be either. Demonstrators can be called protestors and they can also be picketers.

    Just to show how they all fit together:

    Ex. The animal rights group held a demonstration in downtown Chicago yesterday as protesters marched against the of killing animals for their furs. Some of the demonstrators formed picket lines and blocked streets and bridges leading to downtown. The protest lasted for most of the day and a dozen of the picketers were arrested after scuffling with "highly annoyed motorists caught in the traffic jam for hours".

    For the term cazerolaso, the english term would be a noise barrage. usually done to protest as you say politicians in general. We have a lot of that to here in Barcelona. noise barrages as well as lousy politicians.

    ¡¡Un español en el foro!!

    ¡BIENVENIDO!

    (...y directamente me va a odiar...soy de los que disfrutaron del "pasillo" ayer, jejejeej)
    Los hombres son superiores a las mujeres porque Alá les otorgó la primacia sobre ellas. Portanto, dió a los varones el doble de lo que dió a las mujeres. Los maridos que sufrieran desobediencia de sus mujeres pueden castigarlas: abandonarlas en sus lechos, e incluso golpearlas.
    No se legó al hombre mayor calamidad que la mujer."


    El Corán (libro sagrado de los musulmanes, recitado por Alá a Maomé en el siglo VI)
