The march in Washington follows the first such march, when in 2017, the day after the inauguration of President Donald Trump in January, more than three million people took to the streets.
Demonstrators at the Women’s March expressed outrage that Republicans were ready to confirm Coney Barrett’s nomination just before the 2016 election, while more than six months before the 2016 election they refused to approve the nomination of former Merrick Garland Democrat. US President Barack Obama.
During this week’s interrogations, Coney Barrett declined to comment on issues of presidency, abortion, climate change, voting rights, or health care reform known as Obamacare, saying she could bring cases involving them.
Trump nominated Conservative Judge Coney Barrett to serve for life on September 27 in the Supreme Court. The Judicial Committee of the Senate of the US Congress will vote on her nomination on October 22, despite Democrats’ reservations that the decision on her appointment comes too shortly before the presidential election on November 3. More than 26 million Americans have cast their votes in advance.
If Coney Barrett took the post of Supreme Court Justice, the Conservatives would have a 6: 3 advantage over the Liberals, the most significant ideological change in 30 years.
Protests across the US
The Guardian recalled that the march in Washington, which was attended mainly by young women with veils on their faces, follows the first such march, when in 2017, the day after the inauguration of President Donald Trump in January, more than three million people took to the streets.
Rachel O, Executive Director of the Women’s March “It started with a women’s march and will now end with a women’s vote. A dot,” she said.
Hundreds of other protest marches and demonstrations took place at city halls, parks and memorials across the United States.
