Are demonstrations against a bad Muslim ruler allowed?

I’ve read many articles arguing that demonstrations against a Muslim ruler, even one who is a tyrant, are not allowed in Islam! Is that true? Doesn’t make sense to me.

“And those who, when transgression hits them, they vindicate themselves” (42:39)

Does this answer your question?

Interestingly enough, this verse comes immediately after the democracy verse
“…And their affair is by consultation between them” (42:38).
