Protesters Interrupt DNC Unity Reform Commission Meeting: This Meeting Is ‘Tainted’

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) Unity Reform Commission’s final meeting was interrupted by two protestors who held up signs and alleged the commission was tainted because it did not inform the public where the meeting was being held.

The Unity Reform Commission was established to review the Democratic Party’s presidential nominating process following the controversy that surrounded the nomination of Hillary Clinton in 2016.

One of the protestors held up a sign that read “Democratic Party or Undemocratic Party?”

Security took away one protestor’s sign and attempted to remove him from the meeting. Another protestor can be heard saying, “They took away my sign, too.”

“Your process is tainted, you know that? The public was largely excluded. By not being invited, by not being told when we signed up, we were never told the time or the room for this meeting,” the initial protestor told the commission. “You know this is a tainted meeting and yet, when a few people figure out how to participate by just sitting here, you want take a sign away. I think that is a mistake.”

The initial protestor went on to say that he thought this underscored how the DNC had not learned any lessons from the past.

“If it’s so threating to have a sign that simply asks ‘Democratic Party or Undemocratic Party?’ this behavior of trying to kick people out and take away the signs underscores perhaps the answer to that question, and it’s disturbing,” he said.

Security attempted to remove the protestors from the meeting, but the Unity Reform Commission allowed them to stay.
