10 Groups Protesting The Republican National Convention

As predicted, chaos has erupted both inside and outside the Republican National Convention - and there's at least 8 groups fighting back against the official nomination of Donald Trump:

CODEPINK called for a ban on open-carry not Tennis Balls. Planned Parenthood distributed Trump condoms while CAIR passed out a satirical drug called "Islamohobin." 

Black Lives Matter showed up, even after prominent group leaders were advised not to go. Ruckus Society, Iraq Veterans Against the War and the Working Families Party mocked Trump's wall proposal with a wall of their own - and condemned the party's anti-immigrant sentiment. 

Monday, Cleveland police detained two members of Anonymous and have since kept a close watch on the hactivists. 

Meanwhile, Coalition to Stop Trump and Delegates Unbound both failed to prevent Trump from officially securing the nomination.
