Kshama Sawant, a member of the Seattle City Council from the Trotskyist Socialist Alternative Party, has called for delegates to walk-out of the Democratic National Convention on Thursday -



But the most powerful protest of all will be for delegates and activists to reject the neoliberal Democratic establishment altogether, and walk out of the convention in the largest possible numbers later this week.

It makes no more of a difference than several prominent republicans not showing up for the RNC...it means nothing...

In fact if these stupid conventions cease to exist nothing would change..

A Trotskyist Socialist on the Seattle City Council?
Is that some kind of Pre Lennin revolution dinosaur commie?
He is not appealing to the Bernie people, he is trying to lead the Bernie delegates to follow him, lol, trying to snatch the power away from Bernie after the first day. Bernie people should be mad, go see Trump he can help you.

Thank you for that link.
I completely forgot about counterpunch. Cool site.
Anyway
Hopefully there is a walk out, I haven't seen a lot of energy coming from the convention. Maybe this will be a spark.

Congratulations to democrats for making me agree with a communist for the first time in my life...

Not only do I agree with Sanders supporters on the corruption rampant in the DNC but am saddened by his acquiescence into subjugation under the boot of the Clinton Dynasty...

Hillary is a despot in every sense of the word and one need only look at her hiring of Debbie Wasserman Schulz and her impossibly corrupt statement that Lynch will continue as Attorney General if she wins the election...

If she was not such a vindictive, petty person she would have picked Bernie for VP..

I think a Clinton/Sanders ticket would've won...but thankfully she chose the road of petulant child and made a politically foolish choice for Vice President...
And vice is something the Clintons know well so one would think they would have made the pragmatic choice.

No matter what happens, I just find it soooo satisfyingly ironic that the Democrats were screaming with a bullhorn about how divided the Republican party was/is, and this is what's happening right now during their convention.

It's hilarious, really.

Disagree, leaving makes you a leader not a follower.

If the DNC establishment didn't do all that it did, I would agree with you that they Sanders camp is doing the grown up version of "I am taking my ball and going home"

IF they stayed and did nothing, they are basically taking the establishment corruption right up their *ATS EDIT*
