Translation of "display" on this context The opposition’s 'display' came as a global effort to isolate Colonel Qaddafi and possibly force his resignation gained momentum over the weekend, with the United Nations Security Council moving to impose punitive financial sanctions and NATO allies discussing steps that included a possible no-fly zone over Libya. Does it mean "demonstration" (protest) or exhibition?

It depends on the context that precedes it. As it stands now, it can mean demonstration or protest but gives us the vague understanding that the opposition has made a public exhibition of their stance. But it seems to be referring to something before it i.e. protest, demonstration, gathering, sit-in, etc. Does that help?
