Huge Sat night crowd at Supreme Court as protesters march in gentrified areas

On the 19th of September, a crowd estimated by Twitter posters at over 1,000 gathered at the Supreme Court to remember Ruth Bader Ginsberg-and to warn GOP Senators NOT to attempt to ram through a Trump nominee prior to the election. Elsewhere in town, the Fuck the Police march confronted wealthy white restaurant patrons about the behavior of the police they are funding.

Activists remember Ruth Ginsberg at Supreme Court

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg died on Sep 18, and was remembered that night by progressive activists outside the Supreme Court. The stakes just went WAY up for the 2020 election. No replacement can likely be confirmed before the election, and if the Senate changes hands any Trump nominee will be rejected. The next Supreme Court justice will be picked by the NEXT president, and may or may not be confirmed.
