Black Lives Matter Activist Storm Wisconsin School Board Meeting and Lays Out Demands (Video)
Black Lives Matter protesters succeeded in disrupting and shutting down a local school board meeting in Wisconsin after they angrily confronted board members over an anti-racist curriculum.
The chaos unfolded at a meeting of the Burlington Area School District Board of Education in Burlington. The protesters were angry about racist comments made on social media against a fourth-grade teacher in the school district that had taught a lesson many thought was political propaganda related to the Black Lives Matter protests.
Protesters were allowed to publicly comment for about an hour but when board members tried to move on to other topics, they began chanting, "Black Lives Matter!" and "Shut it down!"
After police shut down the event and escorted the school board members out of the room, the protest continued outside. One man claimed that the police pushed him and a scuffle appeared to break out as others tried to hold him back from escalating the situation.
