Protesters Come to the Democratic National Convention — PICTURES

September 2, 2012

Like the Republican convention in Tampa last week, the Democratic National Convention is the site of more than just nominations and parties. Protests have also been a prominent part of the week in Charlotte. Below are some scenes of demonstrations around the city this week.
