Blog: As the "You Stink" protests continue in Lebanon, we take a look at some of the funniest protest signs seen on the streets in the past few days.
The "You Stink" movement kicked off after Lebanon’s largest landfill was closed in mid-July, sparking a nationwide waste disposal crisis. After police reacted violently to demonstrations in Beirut's Martyr’s Square on 22 August, protests have gathered numbers and momentum, and have morphed into a wide-sweeping critique of perceived political cronyism and the failure of the Lebanese state to provide basic public services to its people.  

Here in no particular order are some of the best protest signs that have appeared on social media.
