KAVANAUGH PROTEST

By Black Radio Network Staff

      NEW YORK - With Judge Brett Kavanaugh officially ascending to the Supreme Court on tomorrow afternoon, thousands of New Yorkers gathered in Times Square to denounce the new Associate Justice, who replaces retired Justice Anthony Kennedy.
      Chants of "We believe survivors!", "Throw them out!" and "Come November, we remember" rang through the crowds.
      One sign read, "I want justice and accountability but I also want revenge."
      Kavanaugh's confirmation came after multiple women came forward to accuse him of sexual assault during high school and college; allegations that he perjured himself during his Senate testimony; a severely limited FBI investigation that Democrats decried as a sham; and Republican Senator Susan Collins of Maine spending nearly 45 minutes explaining why she would cast the deciding vote to confirm the embattled judge.
      His confirmation locks in a conservative majority in the Supreme Court, and Kavanaugh's judicial track record has raised fears about the future of reproductive rights, environmental regulations, workers' rights, and whether a president can be subpoenaed.
