So define basic rights. Is education a right? Is affordable housing a right? Or, to look at the problem from the other side, should a full time employee earn enough to pay rent and put some food on the table?

And anyway - we pay a lot of taxes, and expect our money's worth. Who are you to tell us we can't protest if we feel cheated? Why should it matter if it's not noble enough?

And any successful protest, even if it's orderly, is going to be disruptive. You just can't put that many people on the street without disruption of traffic. So you're going to have to clarify your position when you say:
And I see no problem with that. It's when people start defending protests (concerning non-rights) that are not so that I am more than being mere cynical.
