#BlackLivesMatter Protesters Blocked from Hillary Event, End Up Meeting with Her

Black Lives Matter Boston protesters targeted a Hillary Clinton event in New Hampshire today and ended up getting a closed-door meeting with the candidate herself.

The activists let it be known ahead of time they would be trying to disrupt the Clinton event, but were unable to get in the room (as opposed to how easy it was for protesters to hijack a Bernie Sanders rally just days ago).

Eventually, the BLM Boston protesters managed to get an audience with Clinton:

Initially, members of the press were to be allowed in the room, but then weren’t, and it was a little unclear what happened:

Organizers told The New Republic before they met with Clinton that they wanted to speak with her about her support of policies “which instituted draconian penalties for drug possession and abuse at the same time they funnel money away from anti-poverty programs and into hyper-militarization of urban police forces and the institution of white supremacist police profiling policies.”

So how did it go?
