Student or Learner
could you please explain the difference in meaning:
1) make a protest with
2) make a protest against
3) make a protest on
I think that 1) means that you file the protest with an authority, 2) means that you file a protest against something you donīt like, but whatīs the meaning of 3)? I have a sentence which says that "the distributor will make a protest on London authorities". Does it mean that he does not like their methods and the like or that he will file a protest with those authorities?
Thanks a lot!
I agree with you about 2.
I don't think I've ever met 3 (except in trivial cases such as 'on Tuesday', 'on lined paper', or 'on grounds of mental impairment'!) In the case you quote, I think they're using 'on' as a synonym for 'about'.
