PHILADELPHIA – On the first day of the convention, Bernie Sanders supporters urged delegates and attendees of the Democratic National Convention not to vote for Hillary Clinton.

Chants rang out as protestors unified themselves for Sanders just before it began to pour rain.

“Jail for Hillary,” roars from protestors broke the professional silence of the Convention, among “enough is enough,” and other chants.

Even while the skies darkened and the sun was nowhere in sight, the protestor’s voices could be heard from blocks away.  It seemed that with the intensity of the rain, the intensity of their message was amplified.
