Summary/Abstract: We have known for a long time that, facing injustices, individuals do not react in the same way: on the one hand, some people minimize the consequences of the injustice or declare the victim responsible, on the other hand, others protest. In a previous survey about professional injustices, it was hypothesized that these differences of reactions varied according to the degree of interiorization of the allegiance norm, that is to say to the propensity, acquired and socially valorized, to not question the social structure and its hierarchy of the powers. If it was noticed that the conducts of minimization or responsabilization were meaningfully more frequent among the "allegiant" people than among the "no allegiant", no difference was observed for the conducts of protest (it was about lodging a complaint). Therefore, we reproduce here this survey, but differentiating the possibilities of protest. If the results confirm those previously observed, they also allow us to better understand the attitude of the individuals in relation to the contestation, and also to consider the conducts of acceptance and contestation as potentially bound to two dimensions rather than the two poles of a same dimension.
