A group of Black Lives Matter protesters walked into a restaurant in Washington, DC, Thursday evening and shouted a scripted political speech at patrons.

Video from Breitbart News shows a group of more than a dozen protesters entering Pisco y Nazca Ceviche Gastrobar, a Peruvian restaurant that recently reopened at limited capacity due to coronavirus restrictions. 

A male led the group, shouting out parts of a script in segments that the rest of the protesters recited back in unison:

"We are here tonight while you are dining because black people are dying at the hands of the police. So, while you are dining, we are sorry for your inconvenience, but black people are dying today. While you are dining, we’re going to read you some facts about the murder of black people. We are here tonight because black lives matter. We are here tonight because black trans lives matter."

Activists held up a variety of signs which phrases such as, "NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE, #BLACKLIVESMATTER," "ABOLISH THE INSTITUTION WE NEED A REVOLUTION," "DEFUND and ABOLISH MPD," and "FREE THE PEOPLE, FIGHT THE POWER, FUCK THE POLICE."

At one point, customers were asked to raise their hands by the protesters, and several customers obliged.

"If you believe that black lives matter, if you believe that black trans lives matter, we ask you to raise your hand up in the air in solidarity with all black and brown murdered by the police. We demand you to abolish the police," the group yelled.

When asked if the group had spoken beforehand with restaurant management about their demonstration, one employee said, "No, they came in of their own free will, and there were too many of them to kick out, so I just kind of let them do what they wanted to."
