PHOTOS: Signs From The 99 Percent Protest Against Eric Cantor Would-Be Speech In Philadelphia

Yesterday, hundreds of protesters from Occupy Philadelphia and a variety of progressive groups — Keystone Progress, MoveOn, the AFL-CIO, AFSCME, Fight for Philly, and others — held a protest at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business to coincide with a planned speech by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) on the topic economic inequality.

Cantor, who two weeks ago called the Occupy Wall Street and 99 Percent Movement protesters “mobs,” canceled his speech at the last minute after his office learned that the university’s standard policy meant his speech would be open to the public.

Some students mocked the protesters, chanting, “get a job.” But had Cantor faced the public instead of canceling, here’s some of the many signs he would’ve seen.

Many more after the jump.
