MANCHESTER, NH. (WBZ NewsRadio) – Protesters shut down a New Hampshire Executive Council meeting at Saint Anselm College before it even started.

The council was set to discuss federal funding and vaccination efforts around the state, but anti-vaccine protesters argued that New Hampshire was giving up their sovereignty by doing so.

Governor Chris Sununu denied those accusations and said the meeting was postponed to keep people safe.

“The Executive Council will convene in a safe location where an orderly process can be ensured and our state employees will not be threatened,” Sununu wrote on Twitter. “The public will be able to attend, but a small group of unruly protestors will not be allowed to disrupt the work of the people.”

Some protestors were able to make their way inside the building where the meeting was supposed to take place. Hundreds more were turned away outside.
