ERIE, Pa. (AP) - Supporters of presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders say they’re planning a peaceful protest outside the Democratic Party’s county headquarters in northwestern Pennsylvania.

Neil Woods, of Erie, tells the Erie Times-News (https://bit.ly/1R3O9Yt ) the group plans to protest outside the Erie County Democratic Party headquarter in Erie about 5 p.m. Monday. The protest will occur while the party’s executive committee meets there.

Woods says Sanders’ supporters are upset by how the party is treating them.

The newspaper says County Democrat Chairman Bill Cole was removed from the party’s executive board after Sanders’ supporters claimed the candidate’s signs were removed from the headquarters’ windows last month.

Cole referred comments to Timothy McNair, and attorney who serves as the party’s parliamentarian. He says Sanders’ supporters are welcome to put the signs in the window again.
