      At least it worked in Nashville last year at a fallen Marine's funeral, is not to have signs about them or focus on them in any way.  Instead, have a huge crowd of supporters around the event (usually funeral) in question.  It drowns them out, dilutes them to the point of being invisible.

      The Nashville counter-event was very well organized, complete with remote parking and shuttles for the supporters with no parking anywhere nearby.  Cops even closed a lane on a main thoroughfare to make room for supporters to march in.

      It not only makes them ineffective and invisible, it also offers up support for the bereaved, which is a good thing in and of itself.
