On the second day of the DNC, I went up to Philadelphia to see the action surrounding the Convention. Here’s what I saw:
Bernie Sanders rally
There was a large Bernie Sanders rally at Thomas Paine Plaza, across the street from City Hall, which went on for most of the day.
Around the city
There were vendors around the Center City convention center (a satellite location for the Convention), and painted donkeys for each state located around the city.
City Hall rally
A rally that started at City Hall eventually marched down to FDR Park. The sponsor of the rally was Shut Down the DNC, later joined by Black Lives Matter and Flint Lives Matter, and a few Frank Underwood supporters.
There was a large sprawling crowd at FDR Park, mainly Bernie supporters but with other issues mixed in. Some of the protestors went up to the barricade fence trying to get the delegates to see their signs on the way to the Convention. Other protestors were using art for protest.
