When the hearing begins, protesters rally against Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination

Demonstrators gathered in Washington to hold a rally in opposition to Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the US Supreme Court as the Senate Judiciary Committee began a four-day confirmation hearing on Monday, October 12. The US Supreme Court organized by several groups, including the Popular Democracy Action Center. In connection with the Affordable Care Act, which was expected to be central to the hearing, the audience chanted “no confirmation before launch” and put up a sign saying “save ACA”. I can hear you. The Supreme Court will hear a debate about whether the Affordable Care Act is constitutional in November and is expected to rule the matter before the end of its term. Protesters asking Senators to refuse confirmation were arrested outside the Hart Senate office building after sitting down, according to the Washington Post. A crowd gathered in support of Amy Coney Barrett and chanted “fill the seat” outside the same building. Credits: Olivares via Samy Nemir-Storyful
