Some protests happen because of the disparity in outlooks between different age groups. Today, a new generation seems to sprout every few months. What about the good old times when boomers were the thing for what seemed like decades? This photo gives us a warm, fuzzy feeling.
It’s good to know that protesters in this age bracket still know how to let out their funny side every once in a while. You can even see the little smirks plastered on their faces as they hold up the sign. This photo was taken at the Aged Care Protest in South Australia back in 2009.
I'll Fight for My Right to Converse
A lot of signs that appear at protests are made to get people's blood up, get them angry, or give them something pithy to shout at the object of their disdain. This person, on the other hand, has decided to let the people around him or her know something.
If they want to chat about the topic of the day, then they'll have to pull out their dayplanner and find a time that works for everyone. Respectful discourse is at an all-time low these days, it seems, which means this person is doing the Lord's work in trying to cool things down.
A Ruff Rider
You know, it’s not just human beings who have a bone to pick with society every once in a while. Man’s best friend also has plenty of reasons to be upset. To take things one step further, it’s safe to say that climate change affects not just homo sapiens but also the rest of the animal kingdom.
Dogs need fresh air to play in and nice green trees to pee on when they go out on their walks. And if this beautiful hound hanging out of his owner’s backpack with his tiny sign can’t convince world leaders to stop climate change, then nothing will.
Sometimes, a protester might be wondering why the protest they are attending even needs to happen to begin with. And it seems fitting that someone would be having an existential dilemma at a March for Science. And yet, that’s exactly what was happening when this protester created and held up the following sign.
We feel like maybe they could have come up with something more powerful. But hey, we’re just neutral bystanders looking for the funniest signs, and this one certainly deserves its place on this list. Because if this was a list of the most effective protester signs, this certainly wouldn’t have made the cut.
One of the Bigger Signs
This person has put thought into his or her poster. Being able to demonstrate exactly how you think in just a few words is good for only a few things; one of them is to increase your anger at the thing you're talking about. However, opinions always have a history, which is why this person decided to take the long route.
There's nothing like sitting down with a few cups of coffee between you and hashing out the differences in your trains of thought and the reasons why they might be headed in the same or different directions. Too many words, man!
