By Chloe Angyal for The Huffington Post - PHILADELPHIA ― Jim Boydston was hoarse. He’d been talking all day, and yelling all night, and at the Democratic National Convention, the days and the nights are very long. But hoarseness didn’t stop him from singing, and in the middle of the lobby of the Marriott hotel in Center City, he belted out a song about Bernie Sanders and his fight to protect the American people from corporate greed.

By Zach Cartwright for US Uncut - Bernie Sanders delegates are leaving the Wells Fargo Center in droves, protesting the Democratic National Committee’s bias toward Hillary Clinton throughout the primary process. In a video tweeted by NBC News’ Monica Alba, Sanders’ most ardent supporters are seen walking out, holding signs and chanting “Show me what Democracy looks like! This is what Democracy looks like!” NPR’s Asma Khalid also tweeted video of Sanders supporters chanting “Walk out! Walk out!” after the nomination vote.
By Marisa Holmes for International Times - There are still barricades around Liberty Square. More than four years after the eviction, New York City and Brookfield Office Properties, the owners of the park, have physically enclosed the space. Cars parked on nearby streets bear the logo of the new NYPD special task force for handling protests, the Strategic Response Group. The government is still concerned about the possibility of occupation, and clearly intends to prevent it from happening ever again. Occupy Wall Street challenged the legitimacy of the American state.
By C. Robert Gibson in Occupy - Dear Bernie Sanders supporters, Shut up and listen for once. When black women interrupt your candidate, don't call them "thugs." And when protesters hijack your hero's microphone to have their story heard, it doesn't mean they're paid provocateurs in some elaborate plot involving George Soros and Hillary Clinton. You know who else propagates wild conspiracy theories about George Soros funding left-wing protesters? Glenn Beck and Allen West. So congratulations, white progressives – your fanaticism for Bernie has turned you into the thing you hate. Bernie Sanders says the only thing that will guarantee his election is a "political revolution." But when that revolution tried to speak, you suppressed it. Unlike Occupy Wall Street, this movement wasn't started by or largely made up of white progressives.
