Kavanaugh Confirmation

Protesters flooded the Senate building during 'Cancel Kavanaugh' march

Thousands of demonstrators marched on Thursday to protest Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, traveling from the Washington, D.C., courthouse where Kavanaugh works as a federal appeals court judge, to the Supreme Court building.

The "#CancelKavanaugh" march was dotted with prominent figures like Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and comedian Amy Schumer. HuffPost reports that busloads of people traveled to the capital for the protest, including many sexual assault survivors who oppose Kavanaugh based on the assault allegations against him.

Protesters also made sure to march through the halls of the Hart Senate Office Building. Time's Charlotte Alter reported that more than 300 people were arrested at that point, many for civil disobedience.

Other #CancelKavanaugh demonstrations took place across the country, featuring "Survivor Speakouts" and speeches in support of Christine Blasey Ford, who says Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in the 1980s. Watch the video below, via NBC News, to see how hectic the Senate building was during the demonstration. Summer Meza
