A large gathering of people who took their fight to Capitol Hill Monday afternoon saw 128 of their members arrested by the end of the day. The people who are involved in the protests do not support the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court and were determined to make their voices heard. Senior adviser to the Women’s March, Winnie Wong, informed members of the media that one protest began at 8:30 a.m. on the steps of the Supreme Court before the mob of people took their protest to the office of Senator Susan Collins, R-Maine. Many of the people involved in the protest share the belief that the owner of 3,000 new hangers, Senator Susan Collins, R-Maine, can be pressured into voting against the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
After protesters who were involved in the demonstration that took place Monday shared their own stories of sexual assault, there were near two dozen arrests made outside the office of Senator Susan Collins, R-Maine. Soon after the arrests were made in front of Collins office, protesters moved their demonstration to the office of Trump critic Senator Jeff Flake. In the eyes of many of the protesters the Arizona senator is another possible no when it comes time to vote on whether or not to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
The protesters continued to make their way around the Capitol Hill area as they moved to the Russell Senate Office Building. A large number of the women involved in the protests wore Yale University sweatshirts as they made their support for Christine Blasey Ford and Deborah Ramirez very clear with shouts of, ” We believe the women!” Winnie Wong seemed very confident that the protesters would see the result that they desire when she expressed her belief that victory is near.
Demonstrators who are involving in the protest have no intent to stop their protesting until they see Judge Brett Kavanaugh withdraw from his Supreme Court nomination. A protester named Ady Barkan said, “the fact that we are going to win and that Kavanaugh will not be confirmed is proof of how important it is to always fight even when people say there is no chance of winning.”
The protests that took place Monday afternoon took place after two different women came forward and made allegations of sexual misconduct against Judge Brett Kavanaugh. From the moment there was any word spoken about Christine Blasey Ford accusing him of sexual misconduct Kavanaugh has adamantly insisted that there is no truth to the accusations that have been brought against him.
