The Oct 17 Women's March targetted both Trump and Amy Coney Barrett as unfit for office, and had as its focus the efforts to vote Trump out of office(if possible...). The march drew both Trumper and antichoice counterprotesters. These in turn drew a counter-counter protest by young activists. Heated debates ensued, with right-wing signs blocked and at least two antichoice signs painted over.

The 13th of October was an ugly day for the US Supreme Court. Trump's nominee Amy Coney Barrett refused to answer whether voter intimidation is illegal and refused to commit to recusing herself from deciding a disputed election. As she spoke, hate groups such as the anti-GLBTQ "Concerned Women for America" were in town lobbying for her confirmation.
