The Democratic National Convention opens today in Charlotte, North Carolina, bringing more than 35,000 delegates, journalists and activists to the nation's second largest financial hub. On Sunday, a coalition of groups organized the first large protest of the DNC. More than 1,000 people rallied in what was described as a March on Wall Street South. Stops on the march included Bank of America's global headquarters and the home of Duke Energy, one of the nation's largest utility companies and an operator of coal-fired and nuclear power plants.
