On the 28th of September, protesters returned to the homes of Supreme Court "Justices" Kavanaugh and Roberts. At Kavanaughs, one cop hissed threats for clicking drumsticks, another got on the PA and read out a "warning" implying use of "amplified sound" which drums are not by anyone could lead to arrests of everyone. Protesters kept the action going.

"Moms for Liberty" is an anti-LGBTQ, book-burning organization with links to the Proud Boys. Protesters condemned not only the fascists in "Moms for Liberty" but also the fascists on the Supreme Court and Florida's fascist governor DeSantis. DeSantis (sometimes called DeSatan) spoke at the...

Marchers demanded the filibuster be abolished, the Supreme Court expanded, Federal lands be used to provide abortion services in ban states, and the Hyde Amendment be repealed.

He has a pro-Trump "Freedom flag" in front of his house which replaced the US flag the day Trump was defeated in 2020. He cited 17th century "jurist" Matthew Hale in his draft decision to overturn Roe.
