Watch: Two protesters infiltrate Republican National Convention

Comments 0

Cleveland – Donald Trump is used to protesters trying to interrupt his rallies. But the two activists who infiltrated the heavily-guarded Republican National Convention set a new bar.

The first, a Code Pink demonstrator, raised a banner that read “Yes We Can End War” as Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions spoke. She was quickly surrounded by delegates who tried to snatch the sign out of her hands. The video above, shot by Ken Herman of The Austin American-Statesman, shows her ouster from the lower-level of Quicken Loans Arena.

Minutes later, a second protester on the upper deck whipped out a “Refugees Welcome” sign during former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s speech. This time, there was no tug-of-war. She was swiftly escorted from the arena, as delegates chanted “USA! USA!”

“It means we’re getting to them,” said Giuliani.
