Protesters demanding more aid for the global fight against AIDS briefly disrupted Barack Obama’s speech in Bridgeport.

The protesters, some of whom wore Harvard and Yale sweatshirts, unfurled banners on each side of the arena, drawing boos from the crowd.

Obama told them they would be better served protesting Republicans who oppose funding for AIDS.
