Sanders supporters plan massive 4-day protest to disrupt Dem convention

Bernie Sanders ’s supporters have secured permits for four demonstrations near July’s Democratic National Convention, according to a new report.

The Wall Street Journal on Friday reported that one permit authorizes an event consisting of four days of all-day rallies at FDR Park.

Philadelphia expects at least 30,000 participants; organizers are hoping the turnout is even higher. The park is located close to the Wells Fargo Center, putting it in close proximity to the convention’s epicenter.
