Protesters, fueled largely by the anti-establishment vigor of Bernie Sanders' insurgent campaign, flooded Philadelphia this week for the Democratic National Convention. As of Thursday morning, the mostly peaceful protests had resulted in 103 citations and 11 arrests.

In an original video for Salon, We The People Live host Josh Zepps took the the streets to take the pulse of the anti-Clinton crowd. The atmosphere Zepps found around Philadelphia's City Hall was somewhere between a political rally and the parking lot of a Grateful Dead show, complete with David Crosby lookalikes on stilts, shirtless children playing bongos, and members of the Revolutionary Communist Party.
