Valin Posted August 11, 2015 Share Posted August 11, 2015 CNN: Eric Bradner and Dan Merica CNN Aug. 11 2015 KEENE, New Hampshire (CNN) - Secret Service agents on Tuesday kept five people in #BlackLivesMatter T-shirts from entering a Hillary Clinton event in New Hampshire. The Secret Service had closed the doors to the event, a forum focused on combating substance abuse, in Keene after it reached capacity, a Clinton spokesperson and a Secret Service agent told CNN. One of the five kept outside the event was Daunasia Yancey, the organizer from the Boston chapter of #BlackLivesMatter. The New Republic had quoted her earlier Tuesday saying the group planned to disrupt Clinton's event with questions about her previous support for "draconian penalties for drug possession and abuse" and the "hyper-militarization of urban police forces." An overflow room was set up at Clinton's Keene event, where the protesters watched the event via a live stream. After the forum, Clinton headed over to the room to meet with them, said Nick Merrill, a spokesman for Clinton's campaign.
