Video-- Durbin on the Senate Floor Interrupted By GITMO Protesters in the Gallery

Senate Sergeant at Arms warns the protesters in the gallery and Republican Sen. Tom Cotton, presiding at the time, strikes the gavel but the demonstrators continue chanting about torture or something

Nearly two dozen protesters from "Witness Against Torture," a group dedicated to closing the detention facility at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, were arrested in the Capitol Building Monday afternoon, after demonstrating in the Senate gallery and the Capitol Visitor Center

According to the U.S. Capitol Police, 21 protesters were arrested Monday for demonstrating in an area where it is unlawful to demonstrate.

The protesters in the Senate gallery were arrested after causing a disturbance as Senate Minority Whip Richard J. Durbin, D-Ill., was speaking on the floor. The protesters began yelling, "U.S. torture, it's official! Prosecute now!" during his speech, halting action on the floor for about a minute.
