Sanders Delegates Walk Off DNC Convention Floor in Protest

HeadlineJul 29, 2016

Back in Philadelphia, Bernie Sanders delegates protested both on and off the convention floor Thursday. Scores of Sanders delegates wore fluorescent green shirts reading “Enough is Enough,” which appeared to glow in the dark whenever the arena lights dimmed in between speakers. Many of these delegates also held signs reading “No More Wars,” “Ban Fracking Now,” “#DNC Email Leaks” and “Jill Stein.” Toward the end of Thursday night, about a half-dozen young black activists marched out of the convention arena chanting “Black Lives Matter.” Other groups of Colorado and California delegates also walked off the floor, the Californians saying their votes hadn’t been counted. It took California a full month to count the votes following the June 7 primary.
