It is a bit rich (no pun intended) that the United States of America would claim itself to be the Land of the Free. This photo was taken during a protesters’ march in Hong Kong on their way to the US consulate. And let’s face it. In America, nothing is free. You have to pay for pretty much everything.
Hotdogs are not going to grow off trees. People are not just going to hand over some Air Force Ones for nothing. Heck, even healthcare costs an arm and a leg. So you can understand this guy’s frustration just a little bit more.
We don’t think we have ever seen a protest quite like this one. Instead of standing in a sea of humans holding up a sign for hours on end, this protester simply painted their message onto a banner and fixed it on the top of the store it was protesting for.
This was part of a Reclaim Brixton anti-gentrification campaign to preserve the stores that are located under some of Brixton, South London’s railway arches. Some people just love their fish and chips so much that they would do something like this to save them. Now that is true commitment.
And You Actually Went?
People who go to protests want other people to go, too. And since those other people might not be interested or might have families to take care of or jobs to go to, sometimes a few lies are mixed in with the truth.
This sign tells us that one of those lies was that famous pop star Justin Bieber was supposed to be in attendance, or maybe even performing! Sadly, The Biebs was no to be found. Yet this man had a sign prepped and ready to go! Maybe the other side read “I <3 Justin Bieber.” Still, he looks like he's having a good time.
We are not entirely sure how much this counts as a protest sign. If you mean that it’s a sentence typed out on some random guy’s T-shirt while he was at a protest, then we guess this technically qualifies on this list. It was taken back in 2013 when a man attended a gay pride march in Rome.
What is useful about this T-shirt is that people will instantly see that he can attend to them if they are injured or suffering from some kind of emergency. The Italian capital always has protests going on, so this is nothing new.
Where Do You Think You're Going?
Just because the plane's wheels are on the ground does not mean that you can just go. There are things that have to happen first! Important things! Safety things, probably, and even though we don't know what they are, they definitely have to happen.
Standing up before anybody can even leave the plane does nothing and is going to annoy the people around you. Besides, even if you could leave as soon as the plane touched down, you would take quite a fall if the accordion bridge is not connected yet. We hope you like the taste of the tarmac!
