They are out in force in the streets around the city, marching and demonstrating in the sweltering heat, which hit 91º F in the early afternoon but felt like 102º F with 56% humidity, according to AccuWeather.

Dozens gathered at City Hall, for example, while others marched down Broad Street, and others targeted the convention site itself.

Here are the thirteen best protest signs:

Several protesters carrying signs threatening to leave the Democratic Party, and borrowing from the recent “#Brexit” from the EU, warned of “#Demexit”:

That effort depends on delegates inside the convention hall — but has plenty of support beyond it.


Hillary’s hashtag is “#ImWithHer.” Trump says “I’m with you.” These protesters weren’t quite prepared to go that far — at least, not yet — but offered this version:


This sign calls the election “rigged” and advises its audience to “give up now” — though it’s not clear who should give up, or what they should concede.
