About 40 protesters from Occupy Charleston interupted Rep. Michele Bachmann’s (R-MN) foreign policy speech during a campaign stop in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. As she was beginning her speech, the protesters stood up and recited a prepared message in unison. “We have a message for Miss Bachmann,” they yelled. Bachmann’s supporters yelled at the protesters to sit down and tried to drown them out. The protesters chanted, “We are the 99 Percent,” as police escorted them out. No arrests were made, and Bachmann returned to finish her speech about 10 minutes later. Watch the protesters’ actions:
