(THREAD) Well guys, it's time for a recap thread.

I covered over 80 protest actions in 2018, and out of the 4,300 photos I took, here's some scenes from the most defining moments in DC activism this year.
(1) #NeverAgain was one of 2018's biggest political stories, without a doubt. It took only 38 days for a small group of Parkland students to rally millions and set off a surge of student-led engagement.
(2) 2018 was the year the "die-in" tactic went viral. Even smaller actions, like a few dozen students blockading McConnell's office, were seen by millions. Young people wanted a sign that politicians were getting their message loud and clear.

On January 21, 2017, we organized the largest single-day protest in US history. We came together as women, femmes, and allies to speak out, and we set the stage for the resistance movement that continues today.

YOU did this. YOU made this happen.

On January 28, 2017—just one week after the first Women’s March—we flooded airports nationwide to protest the Muslim Ban.

Women who marched together went to airports together. People who met at women’s marches came together again to say #NoMuslimBan.

On January 31, 2017—just 10 days after the March—we went back to DC to voice our outrage of the nomination of Jeff Sessions. We continued our call to #StopSessions for over one year after that.

[THREAD] Kavanaugh’s confirmation today is just 1 part of Republicans’ decades-long campaign to subvert our democracy. They put their relentless pursuit of a Supreme Court controlled by radical right-wingers ahead of brave women who have told their stories. #KavanaughConfirmation
By taking extreme personal risk, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford & sexual assault survivors galvanized this process. Disturbing and credible allegations against Brett Kavanaugh were brought to light by several courageous women. None of it mattered to Republicans. #KavanaughConfirmation
Brett Kavanaugh lied under oath. He should be disbarred and investigated, not elevated to the Supreme Court. He has the lowest approval rating of a SCOTUS nominee since Robert Bork.

Thought he’d just focus on Kavanaugh. Instead he gave best response on rape culture I’ve ever heard from a man!
I aspire to be this reflective. Damn!

If you're unable to watch what's happening on the floor, I'm gonna be updating this thread with the latest the best I can.

Just now:

Sen Grassley sd Dems doctored a video of Kavanaugh saying B.C was "abortion inducing drugs".

#VoteNo #StopKavanaugh #CancelKavanaugh
Sen Grassley:

The democrats had "one last card" to play with regard to Dr. Ford. Suggesting they sat on the allegations merely as a ploy.

People should see this for what it is- political play.
Lawd have mercy.

I just took my anxiety medication and bloop pressure pills. 😄😄

Grassley is on my fucking nerves. He is lying and lying and lying about the same stuff they've lied abt for a month.

Hey liberals amplifying #NeverTrumper Rick Wilson. Remember the SCOTUS/Garland f**kery & how Rick enthusiastically cheered the GOP blocking Garland? Rick said Garland would "spend 30 years wrecking everything in sight." You are being played. Rick is not our ally. #CancelKavanaugh
☝🏼Dear @kathygriffin
You have amplified & called Rick Wilson a hero. Here he is cheering the GOP blocking of Garland. Rick is part of a far right machine that paved the road for Trump He worked to elect bigots like Kobach, Giuliani, Hasner etc. he is no hero & no liberal ally

So, the walk-out/speak-out that happened at 1:00 PM today wound up being pretty pivotal in at least one way. #BelieveSurvivors, #CancelKavanaugh, and Deborah Ramirez are trending (Ramirez with a whopping 323K tweets) after being pushed out by the morning cycle.
Twitter is registering more tweets for Deborah Ramirez than Rod Rosenstein. That's amazing. Everybody who tweeted her name should feel a little proud.
Like, "just" tweeting about something and getting something to trend is not the only thing that has to be done for real change to happen, but in the modern world it's a barometer of where the conversation is, where public will is.

Dear @SenatorCollins, You keep saying you’re hearing “nothing” from constituents about #Kavanaugh. I invite you to come back home and actually spend some time in #Maine- and see the incredible community fighting his nomination. 1/9
For someone who repeatedly promised Maine women you would protect our rights - and earning the @PPact endorsement - how do you explain the 76% of women who OPPOSE his nomination? 2/9
And why are you letting the White House papers - of his “most formative years” (his words, not mine) not be released? Where’s the anger? 3/9
