Protest, at which action directed (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

object

I believe this clue is a double definition.

'protest' is the first definition.
(as in objecting to something)

'at which action directed' is the second definition.
(object can mean a purpose or target)

(Other definitions for object that I've seen before include "offer in opposition", "Argue against - purpose", "Protest, disapprove", "part of sentence", "Express dissent to the thing?".)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
