"Warmongers not welcome"
It was only a couple of heavily outnumbered protesters, but at least it was something.

FORMER US SECRETARY of State and First Lady Hillary Clinton has been conferred with an honorary doctorate from Trinity College Dublin.
Clinton was one of five people recognised for what the college calls “their contribution to society”. However, the procession into the conferring hall was marked by a small number of protesters chanting “warmongers not welcome”.
Those chants were quickly drowned out by the assembled crowds, who began applauding Clinton.
Maybe it has something to do with the executions, torture and slave markets in Libya.
Bizarrely, Trump isn't enough of a warmonger, which I guess makes him a peacenik.
An implicit coalition of corporate media, Democratic partisans and others loyal to the national security state are actively hostile to any agreement that would endanger the continuation of the 70-year-old Cold War between the United States and North Korea.
Meanwhile, in the mess that was once Syria, our forces are being attacked by...who the f*ck knows!?
The U.S.-led coalition and its Syrian rebel allies were targeted late Thursday by a yet unidentified foe who reportedly entered the coalition's roughly 34-mile "deconfliction zone," opposed by the local government and its Russian and Iranian allies.
While the U.S.-led coalition's stated goal in Syria is to defeat the Islamic State militant group (ISIS), Washington's continued unauthorized military presence there, as well as its continued support for insurgents trying to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, have created tensions with a parallel pro-Syrian government campaign to defeat the jihadis. No group has claimed responsibility for the latest flare-up, which apparently targeted the U.S.-backed Maghawir al-Thawra rebel group, but the coalition mentioned it remained in contact with Russian officials to avoid conflict spillover.
Maybe it has something to do with the fact that we're bombing the Syrian government again.
