The men were protesting the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the court. The U.S. Senate has voted 50-48 in favor of his confirmation as Supreme Court justice.

Kavanaugh has been accused by university professor Christine Blasey Ford of attempted rape.

In this footage from Twitter user @OurFriendKen, activists wearing suits link arms in the road and refuse police orders for them to move.

As they were led away by police, they chanted, “Believe women! Believe survivors!” JB
