    Protests against presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party continued outside the Democratic National Convention.

    PHILADELPHIA — Protests against presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party continued for a fourth day on Wednesday outside the Democratic National Convention (DNC) in Philadelphia.

    "We want to take back our farms, food, families and freedom," Ethan, a self-described farm activist, told Sputnik on Wednesday.

    Ethan paraded his alpaca down Philadelphia's Broad Street to the DNC site in south Philadelphia.

    Demonstrators protest outside the Comcast Center in Philadelphia, Wednesday, July 27, 2016, during the third day of the Democratic National Convention.

    Additionally, around 50 protesters with "Democracy Spring" signs marched from the city center to demonstrate against the convention.

    Earlier on Wednesday, hundreds of supporters of US Senator Bernie Sanders, former Clinton rival for the Democratic Party presidential nomination, staged a protest outside of Philadelphia's City Hall to decry Clinton's nomination.

    Police and US Secret Service agents moved protesters farther away from the DNC entrance after some demonstrators scuffled with law enforcement on Tuesday night.
