VIDEO: BLM protest interrupts North Charleston public safety committee meeting


Black Lives Matter protesters interrupted a public safety committee meeting in North Charleston Thursday evening.

Muhiyidin d'Baha Moye, one of the local organizers of the movement was removed from that meeting after addressing those in attendance.

As he was escorted from the room, he and others began to chant, "This is what democracy looks like. Tell them what democracy looks like."

Dozens of protesters were also outside City Hall Thursday evening. Many remained after Muhiyidin d'Baha was cuffed and arrested by officers on a charge of disorderly conduct.

They chanted "Black Lives Matter." They spoke of reforming city government, and asked for a citizens review board.

Before being removed, Muhiyidin d'Baha was addressing members of the public safety committee.

"This group says they will fight until they get what they want," he said. "A citizens advisory board with subpoena powers. They say the citizens advisory council currently in place doesn't do enough for the will of the people. They plan to be here again next week at the North Charleston city council meeting to protest again."
