Sign Of The Times: Protest Signs That Sum Up The Sixties


The Sixties were a time of social upheaval and calls for change in the US and much of the Western world.

To celebrate the grassroots countercultural movements of the 1960s, we’ve hand picked some of our favorite protest signs from this decade. To mix things up, we felt we had to throw throw in a couple of very reactionary signs as well. We think these conservative views illustrate some of the mainstream thinking a lot of progressive people felt so fed up about, to the point where drugs and loud music became a perfectly reasonable responses.
