ISPO 2014: Protest tent?

Watching last year’s news, I observed an interesting pattern developing in various countries. It struck me that people who were protesting stayed in tents in the middle of the cities’ main streets and squares. From worldwide Occupy Wall Street and Gezi Park in Istanbul to the anti-Yanukovych protest in Kiev, Ukraine. This same tent inspired many different brands to use it as a trade fair booth. Never before did I see so many tents at one fair. Can we speak about a new movement? Maybe political protests combined with urban camping can be a new extreme outdoor survival?
