Hillary Clinton - protesters - I'm not with her (200x200)Twenty Thousand Committed To Anti-Hillary ‘Occupy DNC’ Protest

May 31, 2016

More than twenty thousand people have committed to protest Hillary Clinton’s likely nomination at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia — and that number is quickly growing.

The protesters are united in their support for Bernie Sanders, as well as their opposition to “a fraudulent Hillary nomination,” according to the group’s website.

Their leaders have set up a Facebook group — titled Occupy DNC Convention — to organize housing and transportation.


One document, titled “Why ‘Occupy DNC Convention’?” explains the protesters’ mission: “we are contesting Hillary’s nomination on the grounds of fraud, voter suppression, and corruption. We show them who we want.”

The group’s leaders have set up a PayPal account and are requesting donations to help fund the demonstrations. The protesters say they simply will not accept a Hillary nomination but at the same time are committed to nonviolence.

They’re even prepared to lose the general election if Sanders isn’t the nominee: “If they nominate her anyway, we show them they did not ‘win’ for we will not be voting for her in [November].”

To date, more than 22,200 protesters have joined the group, which has received a permit to protest from the City of Philadelphia. (Read More)
