The two protesters said some words which were inaudible due to the audience’s uproar. Truss who maintained composure told the security “Let’s get them removed”.

Both protesters were whisked away by security personnel.

The audience cheered Truss who immediately continued her speech while stating that she was going to say something about Greenpeace before they interrupted her.
