DNC Protest Frightens Chicago Dem Convention Planners – By Charles Kim (Newsmax) / Nov 17, 2023
Democrats in Chicago planning the 2024 Democratic National Convention next summer are getting worried following a pro-Palestinian protest at the Democratic National Committee headquarters in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday night.
“We have to anticipate that there’s a lot of tension and very passionate positions,” mayoral Chief of Staff Rich Guidice told Politico. “There’s ongoing training already taking place, specifically in de-escalation training. There will be many, many workshops, and conversations on how to handle large crowds.”
U.S. Capitol Police said in a press release Thursday that a crowd of around 200 pro-Palestinian protesters gathered in front of DNC headquarters and turned violent after officers asked them to leave.
