People in different parts of the world are increasingly expressing their discontent with their governments' policies.

Many of the issues may be different but they share common themes at their core: Corruption, injustice, climate change and human rights.

Protesters are challenging authorities, even in places where it was once considered unthinkable to do so.

So, what's behind this growing demand to protest?
