Handmade protest signs were everywhere during another weekend of protests across the United States.

Another weekend of anti-Trump protests across the United States proved that the new President may be able to Make Protesting Great Again, if nothing else.

The weekend was dominated by quickly organized demonstrations at airports and in public parks and squares in cities across the country. There is a new activist energy in this country and it’s not dying down any time soon. Handmade signs continue to dominate the gatherings and marches, so we decided to round up some of the most impressive, unusual, funny, and eye-catching placards we spotted.
