It's been a long and very exhausting first day (with record high temps) so the writing will come later. For now, enjoy some photos of some of the excitement we witnessed on the streets and in FDR Park today.
We witnessed the Clean Energy March and some of the rally in the park. Alas, Bernie wasn't there. Word on the street says that we could see him Monday, so we're holding onto that hope.
|DemocRATS are making this "rat" angry. He says "Write-in Bernie."
Peace, love and progressive thinking be with you always. -- Cindy
Here's an update from Ohio Delegate Dennis Slotnick:
My friends and political activists.
A Berner who brought his llama to talk about the treatment of farm animals. Yes, that's an actual llama in the middle of downtown Philadelphia... Berners go the extra mile to get their message out! Feelin' the Bern indeed!
Receiving this message from me means you made it to the select list of those who will be getting regular feedback from the delegation. As unfiltered the mainstream media. As a Bernie delegate I will do my best to convey what I see and hear during the DNC convention. As a scientist I will do my best to be objective ( but that is virtually impossible in the political realm).
If at any time you would like to not get these or comment on these, let me know by reply.
Here we go! already we have challenges going in: VP pick is not sitting well with many Bernie people. superdelegates may not be eligible to vote, TPP is hottest issue, may get minority mic time.
Attorney general just got notice that Clinton campaign interviened in the election process, biases in DNC in Hillary leaks are breaking news.
Realize anything can happen here. Especially with information technology like never before.
Feelin' the Bern
Dennis Slotnick, CD #5 delegate, Ohio
