Co-founder of the Black Lives Matter Seattle chapter Marissa Johnson spoke with MSNBC's Tamron Hall about the group's action in taking to the stage during a Bernie Sanders rally Saturday.
Johnson called all of the rumors about her not being a part of the Black Lives Matter movement and a Sarah Palin supporter "derailment." "I think it's really interesting to note that no one is really engaging with the content that I said on stage," she said.
Johnson also stated that the reason they stormed the stage was Bernie Sanders' inaction in developing and presenting a concrete platform for criminal justice reform in the time since he was confronted by protesters at the Netroots Nation conference. "Bernie Sanders has had the opportunity [to put forth a criminal justice reform package] and has not," she said.
