Marches are a great way for people to raise awareness of things happening in the world, celebrate special occasions and for people to get their points across and make their voices heard. However, arguably the best part of a march (if you take out the awareness being raised), are arguably, the protest signs that people come up with. It’s amazing how clever and funny people can be when they want to be. These protest signs also give a colloquial edge to something more serious, and liven the mood of the day and bring everyone together. To celebrate this; show you signs that spread a great message and to make you laugh a lil bit, here are the 20 best protest signs from marches that you have to see.
1. Bombing For Peace
This sign from the protest against the Vietnam war in 1969 reads; “Bombing for peace is like fucking for virginity”. This is a great example of protest signs that spread a clear message whilst also making you laugh. And let’s be honest, the girl has a point, bombs are the literal antithesis of peace.
2. Sick And Tired
This lady was clearly sick and tired of having to attend these protests, even in her old age. Definitely one of the more honest protest signs we’ve seen.
3. The Guy Who’s Done
This guys has clearly had enough, he’s not usually one for protest signs, but he’s done.
4. Means Girls
Who doesn’t love a good Means Girls reference? This protest sign from the Women’s march is great, Regina George brings everyone together, male or female.
5. The Mary Poppins Pun
This is one of the more avant-garde protest signs against Donald Trump, bringing the focus more towards the clever play on the Mary Poppins song.
6. The Last Straw
From the looks of this guys protest signs, he’s definitely had enough and wants to make it plainly clear to everyone that he’s at his wits end.
7. The Spice Girls
This sign seen in the antBrexitit march definitely spells out how Britain thought they could do it alone and spectacularly failed!
8. Multi Functional
This is one of the more unique protest signs, in that it is multi functional, it offers great advice not only in politics, but also in the bedroom.
9. All For One
These guys really showed their support in the women’s march on Washington. Even the people who would really rather not leave the house to stand in the middle of a big crowd came out to show their support!
10. Roses Are Red
They’re not wrong, tacos are enjoyable. (They’re also not wrong that Mexican’s aren’t to blame for unemployment).
11. Fromage Not Farage
This girl is pretty sure you heard us wrong, we asked for cheese. That’s it. (Not Nigel Farage).
12. Theresa May
Protest signs that have anything to do with Theresa May are usually hilarious, but this one is scary. Definitely too scary to not pay attention to it!
13. Hell Toupe
This one is just brilliant to be honest.
14. Fetus Rights
The protest signs from the San Francisco Women’s march were clever to say the least!
15. I’m Not With These Guys
This guy is just trying to get from A to B. Protest signs are a great way to make it clear that something has nothing to do with you!
16. A Tiny Man
Protest signs made for a tiny man (with tiny hands).
17. The Holocaust Survivor
This lady has been through hell and back, it’s clear from her protest signs that she’s not backing down now!

Oh absolutely not, there is no way that these kids are giving in.
