Mass Arrests as Thousands Descend on Senate Office Building Demanding Lawmakers Reject Kavanaugh
As the Senate moved one step closer to voting to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, thousands of men and women took over the atrium of the Hart Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill on Thursday afternoon, voicing solidarity with sexual assault survivors and demanding that lawmakers reject President Donald Trump’s nominee.
After rallying at Supreme Court earlier in the day, protesters who’d traveled from all over the country filled the building with chants of, “Whose Senate? Our Senate!” and “Believe Survivors!” as more than one hundred were arrested after staging mass civil disobedience.
Watch as history repeats itself, assuming they still hold power after November. It is possible Trump may not allow the elections, and declare martial law.
