How do I cite a demonstration?

Note: This post relates to content in the eighth edition of the MLA Handbook. For up-to-date guidance, see the ninth edition of the MLA Handbook.

A demonstration, or protest, is an event rather than a work, so it does not require a works-cited-list entry. You can simply refer to the demonstration in your discussion. If you cite a speech given at the demonstration, however, provide a works-cited-list entry for the version of the speech you are using.
