Women's March events in NYC, across US protest Supreme Court nomination

Women's March events in NYC, across US protest Supreme Court nomination”

Thousands took to the streets across the United States for women's marches on Saturday, many wearing pink protest hats while issuing fervent calls against President Donald Trump and his conservative Supreme Court pick.

Thousands of protesters took part in women's marches on Saturday, with a main event in Washington, D.C., and sister marches taking place across the country.

The group behind the Women's March, which is held in January, called on women across the country to organize events following the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the Republican Party's decision to push through a replacement before the November 3 presidential election.

Rachel O'Leary Carmona, executive director of the Women's March, talked about the power of women to end Trump's presidency on the rally. "Fight like a girl", said another.

Mr Trump has asked the Senate, controlled by his fellow Republicans, to confirm Ms Barrett before the election.

The Senate Judiciary Committee's confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett leads this week's editorial cartoon gallery. The Senate is expected to vote on her nomination on Thursday.

Meanwhile, counter-protesters also gathered outside the US Supreme Court during the Women's March protest against Trump's decision to fill the seat on the SC left by the late Justice Ginsburg.

The latest of rallies that began with a massive women's march the day after Trump's January 2017 inauguration was playing out during the coronavirus pandemic, and demonstrators were asked to wear face coverings and practice social distancing.

In front of the Supreme Court, according to a report by the Washington Post, there were violent and emotional arguments between the demonstrators and anti-abortionists, who put up pictures of aborted fetuses on posters.

Some demonstrators wore black clothes with white lace collars, just as Ruth Bader Ginsburg had made her trademark. "We are fed up and we are voting Trump out of office", she continued.

A similar number of people gathered in Brooklyn, Ginsburg's hometown, with one protester's sign reading: "Ruth Sent Us".

Ginsburg died last month of complications from pancreatic cancer. "And this is the biggest thing that I know that I could do to help make change".
