I would like to know if there's any nuanced difference between the following two sentences:
1) I protest the new proposal.
2) I protest against the new proposal.
Thank you very much.
The first doesn't work for me; in act, I would use something like 'object to' there- protest is not just disagreeing, but demonstrating, taking action against, etc. The second could work, but it is an extreme stance IMO.
Thank you !
