The Faunus Civil Rights Protest is an event that took place during or prior to the events of "Ruby Rose".
Though it is clear the Faunus are protesting for their rights, the exact demands of the protest are unclear.
At the root of the protest is the way the Faunus are treated like second-rate citizens in Remnant, though not much is yet known about the protest or the exact nature of their treatment in the current time of the series.
In "Ruby Rose", while the new students are flying to Beacon Academy, Lisa Lavender reports on the protest during a news segment on the Vale News Network. The protest was disrupted by a group known as the White Fang, which was once a peaceful organization. Before anything else can be learned, the video is replaced by a holographic image of Glynda Goodwitch welcoming the new students to Beacon.
- This event is the first mention of the Faunus and the White Fang.
- This event is the first appearance of the Faunus in the show itself, and the first appearance of a confirmed Faunus. Blake Belladonna and Adam Taurus had earlier appeared in the "Black" Trailer, but they were not known to be Faunus until "The Stray".
