The campaign of residential protests against antichoice Supreme Court "Justices" continues! Day after day protesters just keep coming back, presumably until Roe is restored or these extremists resign from the court. Thursday, Aug 18 was Clarence Thomas's turn in the hot seat again.

Yes, the Supreme Court "Justices" are still getting protests at their homes 3 1/2 months after the draft of the Dobbs decision leaked. Kavanaugh has been getting them for nearly a YEAR-and they just keep coming! On the 17th of August, protesters returned to the homes of both "Rapey Brett" Kavanaugh and John Roberts, both of whom live in Chevy Chase, MD within walking range of each other. Some new cops were in charge and didn't seem to understand all that was going on. Also...

Video by DC Media Group of one of the ongoing protests at the homes of the so-called "Justices" of the Supreme Court. On Aug 11 the action was at the entrance to "Justice" Clarence Thomas' posh private community. A special message for his J6-involved wife Ginni Thomas was also included, with chants of "lock her up" and a "Subpeona the Ginni Pig" sign.

The drenching thunderstorms of Aug 10 cut power, flooded roads, and even forced high/swift water rescues. None of that stopped a hard core of pro-choice protesters from getting past all the obstacles to protest at the home of Supreme Court "Justice" Kavanaugh at the usual time and day.

Just two days before what many expect to be a Friday release of the Supreme Court's Dobbs decision to overturn Roe, protesters returned to the homes of Kavanaugh and Roberts. Kavanaugh was singled out as a drunken rapist as well as being notoriously antichoice.

On the 21st of June, so-called "Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising" (PAAU) fetus-stealing antichoice zealots faced off in a point-blank shouting match against pro-choice activists outside the Supreme Court. More than once, cops moved in to side with the antichoice zealots, who also had their own dedicated security team. Some of the pro-choice activists and especially one who is not white were hassled by these hired thugs. The antichoice extremists it seems had the bad habit of getting...

On the 20th of June, Supreme Court "Justice" Alito got yet another in the weekly protests in front of his house. 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. Hale is infamous for developing the doctrine that men could legally rape their wives-and for two executions of women for witchcraft.

On the afternoon of the 18th of June, the Black Bodies for Black Power march arrived in strength at the US Supreme Court. Marchers were demanding bodily autonomy and in particular abortion rights for Black Women. It is widely known that antiabortion prosecutors in MAGAT states will focus much of their fire on women of color.

On the 17th of June, DC community activists rallied in front of Truist Bank in Adams-Morgan before marching to Adams-Morgan Plaza. At the plaza, they restored the memorial to Miguel Gonzales that Truist Bank had again destroyed. Afterwards the march proceeded though the streets to Dupont Circle. Miguel Gonzales was an unhoused resident of Adams-Morgan Plaza who died after thugs hired by Truist Bank to remove unhoused residents and their tents stole his blankets on a bitterly cold day. He died...

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.

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. The right wing and GOP have tried everything to...

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.

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!

On the 11th of June, the Capitol Pride march returned to DC, this time marching to the streets next to P st Beach rather than starting there. At Dupont Circle, the same "ex-Gay and "Ex-trans" fundamentalist Christians who harassed the parade last year were back, again hiding behind the cops.

On the 13th of June, Shutdown DC launched their offensive to shut down the Supreme Court on one of the possible days the Dobbs (abortion) ruling could have been released. Many affinity groups joined with Shut down DC to get the job done. Results were mixed: while cops stole a truckload of alleged blockading equipment, the presence of so many protesters forced the cops to do the same job themselves, and the protesters denied them the ability to open blockades for SCOTUS traffic. During the...

During the May 14th "Bans Off Our Bodies" marches, the Women's March promised the Supreme Court would face a "Summer of Rage." Activists have delivered on this with a string of peaceful protests at the homes of Supreme Court "Justices," to the utter rage of the far right, FOX News, etc. On June 11, the protests once again came to the main road outside "Justice" Gorsuch's fancy private community.

Late in the afternoon's Capitol Pride march, the crowd stampeded out of Dupont Circle, apparently sparked by rumors of someone with a gun. This was the second ugly and dangerous stampede of the day. During the earlier anti-gun "March 4 our lives," someone claimed to have a gun, triggering a crowd stampede speakers barely managed to stop. This happened again in Dupont Circle, sending the crowd running and knocking down barricades meant to keep the parade route open. Barricades or other...

On the 9th of June, protesters again returned to the confy Virginia home of Supreme Court "Justice" Amy Coney Barrett. Barrett formerly held the title of "handmaid" in the People of Praise far-right religious cult. This time around, a "reporter" from FOX News showed up, behaved in an extremely unprofessional and confrontational manner, and left when nobody would talk to him.

On the 8th of June, thunderstorms,heavy security, and the day's earlier drama all failed to deter peaceful protesters from showing up at the home of Supreme Court "Justice" and rapist Kavanagh and his co-conspirator "Justice" Roberts. The protesters were there to do exactly one thing: name and shame Kavanaugh and Roberts for their crimes. At the protests, Kavanaugh was directly called out for the repeated public charges of rape made against him by several women during his...

Video cut from two clips posted to Twitter by Ford Fischer The Supreme Court was widely expected to release their Dobbs (abortion) decision on Monday, June 6 but did not. Antichoice protesters were chomping at the bit, showing up in front of the Court. To their surprise a single pro-choice activist upstaged all of them by hopping the low barrier and locking himself to the high fence. All the antis could do was scream and try to dominate audio tracks.

On the 6th of June, pro-choice activists returned to the VA home of antichoice SCOTUS "Justice" Samuel Alito. This time around, Alito had a "Freedom" flag commonly seen at far-right rallies on the flagpole outside his house, easily identifying his residence. To fly such a flag while trying to take freedom away from all women in the US is the height of hypocrisy. As on the 30th of May, protest chants included "we are the witches Matthew Hale couldn't burn!" Matthew...
