#1 Well they're clueless idiots is what they are.

Any successful protest must have a clear cut, narrow goal, not a long list of lamentations against all agencies of govt, industry, education, everything ! Support from all quarters is one thing, but you clearly delineate your goals to everyone protesting with you, with no room for other interests. You fight for small victories (resignations, repeals, legislation, etc), learning your oppressor's weaknesses, creating new ones as you go, lobbying through those with means in your group and the small changes then aggregate into momentum for a bigger one.

Just charge outside yelling "Vive la révolution!" and all you get is a face full of baton.

#2 Amateurs don’t think of all that, generally speaking. Only recall the Tea Party effort here in the States in the early days, when they were protesting, some in costume, instead of finding sympathetic politicians to support.
