#BlackLivesMatter Protesters Discuss Netroots Nation Takeover On HuffPost Live

At the Netroots Nation convention in Arizona this past weekend, #BlackLivesMatter protestors interrupted a presidential town hall featuring former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley and Sen. Bernie Sanders to demand more governmental protection and attention be paid to African Americans, specifically those who have died in police custody. After the event, HuffPost Live's Alyona Minkovski sat down with three of the demonstrators -- Tia Oso, Ashley Yates and Patrisse Cullors -- to reflect on the protest and discuss what they're fighting for. Watch what they had to say in the video above.
