Two Code Pink protesters disrupted a U.S. Senate hearing on Syria on September 3, with one being thrown out for her actions.

First a man stood up and yelled “No war in Syria” as Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, Secretary of State John Kerry and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey, reported the Hill.

The man was returned to his seat by police, and fell quiet after being warned he would be kicked out if he spoke out again.

Following the incident, another protester called out as Kerry was speaking.

Kerry said that he was similar to the protester in that he was against the Vietnam War.

The Senate hearing is over the proposal by President Barack Obama to take limited military action in Syria.

Code Pink is an anti-war organization.
