Hillary Clinton headed to East Los Angeles Thursday night in honor of the Mexican holiday Cinco de Mayo — but her rally in this predominantly Hispanic part of L.A. was anything but celebratory.

Hundreds of protesters descended upon East Los Angeles College to express their disdain for the Democratic presidential front-runner. Most of the protesters remained outside the college, although some made their way inside.

The protesters — some of whom carried pro-Bernie Sanders signs — spanned the spectrum in terms of their key issues: Some were protesting Clinton’s refusal so far to release her speaking engagement transcripts and her ties to Wall Street, while others took issue with Clinton’s “super-predator” remarks in 1994, and the crime bill her then-president husband signed that year. Others also headed to Clinton’s rally to protest her involvement in the 2009 Honduras coup, and to accuse her of pandering to the Hispanic community…

…Inside, Clinton was confronted on the rope line by a protester who was quickly surrounded by police and taken out. And during her remarks, one woman, who appeared to be protesting Clinton’s role in the 2009 coup in Honduras, shouted loudly, “She killed Berta! She killed Berta!” — referring to Berta Caceres, a Honduran environmental activist and indigenous leader, who called out Clinton for her role in the coup, before being assassinated in March.

Likely because of the commotion, Clinton gave a very short speech by her standards: Just over 13 minutes — nearly all of which focused on Trump.
