Shortly after Clinton officially won the nomination, supporters of Sanders, her primary rival, clogged the hallways while chanting “this is what democracy looks like” and “this is our country.” From another side of the arena, several people wearing Black Lives Matter shirts also joined in as the group headed outside to the media tent.
When asked if they were being forced out of the arena, one woman clad in a Sanders T-shirt said they were leaving voluntarily, adding, “It’s been a tough day.”
As a group of Sanders supporters entered the media tent, they were swarmed by reporters with cameras and iPhones.
Several people decked out in Sanders attire were also escorted out of the arena by convention staff. One woman screamed that she would not vote for Clinton and said she planned to “leave the Democratic Party.”
