Reportback from June 16 protest at literal Handmaid Amy Coney Barrett's house

Supreme Court "Justice" Amy Coney Barrett is nearly as famous for her "People of Praise" membership and former title of "Handmaid" there as she is for being one of the Nine on the Supreme Court. On the 16th of June, protesters including one in a "Handmaid's Tale" costume again returned to her house, as they have been doing every Thursday around 7PM for weeks.

Reportback from June 15th Kavanaugh/Roberts home demos

On the 15th of June, antichoice Supreme Court "Justices" Kavanaugh and Roberts got another round of protests at their homes. As always these protests were entirely nonviolent. They have however made the far right and antiabortion movements scream so loudly as to imply a "saturation" effect, meaning that most (possibly all) of the possible effect of any form of protest is already being achieved with the mildest of tactics.

Pro-choice demonstrators march on AT&T over OAN hosting, millions donated to antichoice groups

On the 15th of June, pro-choice activists marched from the Supreme Court to a downtown office of AT&T. AT&T has been the largest single corporate donor to PACs and politicians behind abortion-banning "trigger laws" which go into effect if Roe is overturned (as is now likely). In addition, AT&T has hosted pro-Trump "One America News" on Direct TV, which is to the right even of FOX. Direct TV has been responsible for 80% of OAN's revenue.

Protesters return to Supreme Court "Justice" Alito's home hours after SCOTUS disruption

On the 13th of June, just hours after Shut Down DC's protests at the Supreme Court, protesters again returned to the home of Supreme Court "Justice" Alito. He is held in special contempt both as the author of the leaked SCOTUS draft Dobbs decision and for citing Matthew Hale in that draft. Matthew Hale was a 17th century judge who sentenced two women to death for witchcraft. Now the "witches" are back!
