As Larry Fink strode across the stage at The Times Center to be interviewed about the global economy, a pair of female activists had a different idea for the morning’s agenda.

A woman carrying a magenta banner that read “Fink: Divest from War. Stop the Killing” leaped on stage. “We are calling on you to divest from war!” she yelled. The Twitter handle of Code Pink, a women-led grassroots group, was written on the banner.
