Thousands protest Trump's Supreme Court pick at Women's March

Thousands protest Trump's Supreme Court pick at Women's March”

Rachel O'Leary Carmona, executive director of the Women's March, opened the event by asking people to keep their distance from one another, saying that the only super-spreader event would be the recent one at the White House.

When pressed whether he would consider adding justices to the Supreme Court following a victory by Mr. Biden, Mr. Coons answered "yes".

On the website of the women's march, which dates back to the large participation in the 2017 marches, it says: "We must bring the same strength and determination to October 17th to end Trump's presidency as it began - with massive, resistance led by women".

Protesters - including some dressed as characters from popular television series The Handmaid's Tale, based on a book by Margaret Atwood - marched towards the US Supreme Court.

Read a message on the sea of signs carried out by protesters "Vote for your daughter's future".

Demonstrators gathered in Washington, D.C. and several other U.S. cities on Saturday for the second Women's March of the year to protest President Donald Trump's nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court and urge women to vote in the upcoming election.

"Fight like a woman", said another.

While the nomination process is subject to a vote, her confirmation is virtually certain due to Republican support and a majority in the US Senate.

Thousands in the U.S. gather during the nationwide women’s march against

"And this Supreme Court nominee will affect my children and the future".

This ongoing protest is the second Women's March of 2020.

Several events took place in Manhattan Saturday, including one that started with a rally in Washington Square Park before participants marched to join another rally at the New York Stock Exchange.

A similar number of people gathered in Brooklyn, Ginsburg's hometown, with one protester's sign reading: "Ruth Sent Us". It was one of five separate marches in the city.

Next month's presidential contest was also the focus of a separate NY protest Saturday in which hundreds of demonstrators protested the killings of Black people by police officers.

Ginsburg died last month of complications from pancreatic cancer.

Among those protesting was Tamika Palmer, the mother of Breonna Taylor, a Black medical worker killed by officers in March during a raid at her home in Louisville, Kentucky.

"People need to get out and vote", Palmer told those at the event. "The greatest thing I know is that I can make changes".
