Let It Bern. Continue to the Convention.

An urgent petition to Senator Bernie Sanders:

While you are under huge pressure to abandon your presidential campaign, we urge you to complete the process of fully representing the millions of people who've worked, donated and voted for you. We hope that you will resist the latest calls from the Democratic Party establishment and corporate media to end our campaign before the national convention.

This petition offers the names and personal statements of people from around the United States who echo a broad public outcry for this nomination process to reach its full conclusion.

Your campaign has clearly stood for democratizing the United States, while insisting that democratic principles must apply to the Democratic Party. We believe that every vote should count -- including on the convention floor. That should mean a roll call vote on the nominee for president as part of an official process, including the nominating and seconding speeches.

It remains significant that neither candidate will win the 2,383 pledged delegates necessary to secure the nomination, and -- contrary to the misleading media reports -- neither candidate can do so until the superdelegates vote at the convention in Philadelphia.

You have said, and we have cheered as you've said it, that you will carry this campaign to the convention. We urge you to maintain that position, despite the massive top-down pressures from the corporate media and Democratic Party establishment to prematurely end the campaign.

We reject the idea that democracy weakens a political party named for democracy. We have worked for constructive debate at the Democratic National Convention, and we look forward to hearing it.
