Demonstrators first gathered outside the E. Barrett Prettyman Federal Courthouse where the judge works, on Pennsylvania Avenue near Capitol Hill. From there, protesters marched to the Supreme Court where many chanted, “Hey, hey, ho, ho…Kavanaugh has got to go!”

Later, scores of protesters filled the atrium of the Hart Senate Office Building.

Capitol Police arrested at least 300 demonstrators, most of them on disorderly conduct charges.

Among those arrested were actresse Amy Schumer and actress/model Emily Ratajowski. Schumer was videotaped being asked by an officer if she wished to be arrested and she replied in the affirmative before being led away.
