Photos: Protests At the Democratic National Convention


Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: Throughout the four days of the Democratic National Convention, people came from across the country to protest in Philadelphia, including at least two from Maplewood.

Many protesters supported Sen. Bernie Sanders during the Democratic primary, and some stated that they will vote for Jill Stein of the Green Party during the November presidential election. Some protesters argued with delegates on the Broad Street Line subway, which connects City Hall and the Wells Fargo Center.

These are photos from a rally that was held on Tuesday across from City Hall in Center City Philadelphia and from protests outside of the Wells Fargo Center.

Democratic National Convention Finishes With Speech by Hillary Clinton



Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: The 2016 Democratic National Convention is over.

Democratic Presidential Nominee Hillary Clinton spoke before a crowd of thousands at the Wells Fargo Center in South Philadelphia on Thursday night, following her daughter, Chelsea Clinton, and several other officials, including Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

"New Jersey voters should vote for Hillary Clinton because New Jersey voters are smart voters", U.S. Representative Bonnie Watson Coleman from Mercer County, who spoke Wednesday at the convention, told Essex County Place.

Earlier in the week, there were several protests in Center City that attracted protesters from across the country. Some delegates protested inside the convention.

"We are thrilled with the way the convention has come off to showcase the current president and vice-president and the things they believe in about our country and to showcase our hopefully new vice-president...and to see the most accomplished, trained, wonderful, first woman to nominate for president", State Senator Loretta Weinberg said to Essex County Place on the convention floor.
