Sanders Supporters Plan Rally Before DNC
According to Claudia Vargas of the Inquirer, the Sanders campaign plans on having a “traditional Bernie campaign rally” July 24th at FDR Park according to campaign spokesman Michael Briggs.
Bill Taylor, a Northeast Philadelphia Sanders supporter, already has the date and location locked in with the city. The rally was approved under a demonstration permit which will allow 30,000 people to attend. The campaign is now coordinating with Taylor.
Taylor is also organizing the March for Bernie which will go from City Hall to FDR Park where they will join the rally.
“We are heavily encouraging Bernie to lead that march,” Taylor said.
Taylor expects that hundreds of thousands of people will come out to support Sanders and his causes.
“We can guarantee you there will be a political revolution,” Taylor said at a recent meeting with local Sanders supporters and organizers.
The Democratic National Convention is going to be held July 25th-28th.
