Several thousand "Occupy DNC" protesters are expected to camp out near the Democratic National Convention next month.
NBC Philadelphia reports
that organizers of the group have booked two campgrounds in southern New Jersey, about 20 minutes from where the convention will take place in Philadelphia.
They are working on securing a third site as well, which will serve as tent cities where thousands of protesters would be based during the July 25 to 28 event.
The Daily Caller reported
last month that 20,000 Bernie Sanders supporters have committed to protesting the likely nomination of Hillary Clinton at the DNC.
The group's Facebook page has more than 25,000 members.
Clinton became the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee
this week, although Sanders, a Vermont senator, has vowed to continue his fight
earn a spot on the November ballot.
