TAMPA, Fla. -- Code Pink activists infiltrated the main Republican National Convention hall during Mitt Romney's speech Thursday night and tried unsuccessfully to disrupt his remarks.

The chants of "people over profits!" happened early on in Romney's acceptance of his party's nomination for president before they were quelled by chants of "U-S-A! U-S-A!"

Security quickly dragged the protesters out of the arena and Romney continued speaking without pause or any acknowledgement of what happened. He may not have even been aware there was a protest.

Code Pink tweeted about the incident: "BREAKING: 4 @CODEPINK activists speak out during Mitt Romney during his presidential candidate nomination acceptance speech."
