Hillary Clinton Rally Interrupted By Black Lives Matter Protest (Video)

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was giving a speech at Clark Atlanta University in Georgia on Oct. 30 when some Black Lives Matters protesters walked in and interrupted her (video below).

The group shouted, "Black lives matter!" and sang hymns, notes The Hill.

“Yes, yes they do,” Clinton replied. "And I’m going to talk a lot about that in a minute.”

The protesters continued clapping and singing as Clinton watched.

“Now my friends, I am going to get to some very important points that actually prove that black lives do matter and we have to take action together," Clinton added. "And I hope that we’ll have a chance to talk more as I have been meeting with activists from the Black Lives Matter movement.”

Clinton supporters yelled, “Hillary!” and "Let her talk!"

Democratic Rep. John Lewis of Georgia, who marched with Martin Luther King Jr. during the Civil Rights movement, tried to talk to the protesters, who were eventually escorted out, reports CNN.

Clinton went on to explain her criminal justice reform, which would end racial profiling by police, a key demand of the Black Lives Matter movement.
