DENVER (AP) -- A small group of protesters has marched to the demonstration zone outside the Democratic National Convention, complaining they are being treated like political prisoners.
A contingent from the protest group Recreate 68 Alliance went to the fenced-off zone on Monday, even though they had vowed earlier they would never return.
Protesters derisively call the 47,000-square foot zone the "Freedom Cage." It's separated from the parking lot around the convention hall by metal fences atop concrete barriers.
It's about 700 feet from the Pepsi Center, where the delegates will gather starting Monday night.
Recreate 68 organizer Mark Cohen says the city and the Secret Service are treating demonstrators "like political prisoners, like pariahs."
