With regards to financing the revolution

Another day another new hashtag when it comes to the protests in Lebanon. This one is #انا_ممول_الثورة (I am financinng the revolution) with an "indie" style ad about people saying that sentence (I am a Lebanese citizen - and everyone repeats "I am financinng the revolution"). All this certainly to counter the claims that someone is actually orchestrating/paying for this from deep pockets and to prove that is a movement guided and born from the people. With that many competing hashtags, I am wondering why there are too many messages tiptoeing on each other's feet... I understand the rationale they come from but at some point they are not driving a unified cohesive whole.
