It seems to me that the best tactic to use with the protesters is to simply take away their access to the public stage.
If they are from out of town, send them back, arrest them and transfer them back to their home town for processing. Make it expensive to get back in time to start protesting again.
If they are from out of country, politely escort them to the border. No noise, no fuss, no media. Black list them at the border, make it impossible to come back.
Deal with the protesters that want to communicate, not the ones that want to disrupt.
Act decisively for a change, stop the hand wringing and do what is right.
