Protest before the DNC in Philadelphia

I arrived in Philadelphia on Sunday in time to cover the second march through the city to the Wells Fargo Center where the Democratic National Convention is being held. Even though the DNC did not start for another day, there were already thousands more protesters than were in Cleveland for the Republican National Convention. The march started at City Hall, continued down Broad Street, and ended in FDR Park which is located next to the Wells Fargo Center where the DNC is being held.
