What the mainstream media did not cover was all the protests in Philadelphia. They erected unscalable fences to keep them away from the convention and the TV cameras and the City of Philadelphia had to approve 4 massive protest marches but they ensured such events would not be near the convention. For the largest of the four pro-Sanders rallies approved, more than 30,000 people attended week long demonstrations called “March for Bernie at DNC.” Then there was the group called Black Men for Bernie holding a “We the People Restoration Rally” at Thomas Paine Plaza across from City Hall on July 27-28. The purpose of the rally is “to address economic inequality, human rights, poverty, criminal justice reform and lack of ownership,” according to the city’s permit approval document.
Because of the DNC emails showing the bias and rigging of the primaries against Bernie, the protesters were only on local TV saying they would now vote for Trump after the DNC leaks. We now have 100 days to go, which is a lifetime in politics.
