tl;dr: quite good, as I'd expect from the kind of people who put out the kind of organizing documentation I saw from them
Check out the thread linked in previous tweet, as well as this one:
One Lefty DC friend of mine actually had thought it wasn't promoted enough, but that person was at the protest for normies, not the blockade. I suspect they were going for quality and skill, rather than sheer size. But they got a lot of people for a complex action.
Note that Right-leaning groups cannot do this. Righty grassroots groups lack the skills. The only Righty grass roots group that *does* have the necessary skills is the pro-life crowd, who are prohibited by law from doing this in their area of interest.
The 1994 FACES act prohibits occupying or blockading abortion clinics in this manner, at the penalty of up to a 1yr prison & $100K fine, & felon status.

Because Democrats pass legislation that helps their constituents & harms their constituents' adversaries.

You know. Service.
You will note that when Republicans had control of the House and Senate and Presidency for two years, they didn't bother to pass any legislation aimed at impeding Lefty activists, or at helping Righty grassroots.
Nobody even considered the possibilities of (say) either repealing the FACES Act or adding to it so that Lefties' enemies would receive similar protections.

Of course not. That would be (ugh) work.
For those who missed it, I put out a short thread about the IfNotNow organizing toolkit for their week of action in early July; it's really good stuff, very well done. They know their shit. Worth learning from.
*typo; it's the FACE act, not the FACES act. (Full name is the "Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act," so I guess my brain stuck the plural of Entrances on.)
