Occupy Wall Street signs: Which should go in the Smithsonian?

Representatives from the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History are collecting signs and ephemera from Occupy Wall Street and Occupy D.C. for potential exhibitions about the movement. And they have plenty to choose from. New images of the already iconic Occupy signs come across the wires every day.

There would certainly be some 99 percent-themed signs in a future display. But beyond the movement’s most visible slogan, if you were a curator, what Occupy signs would you choose? Vote in our poll below the photos.
