Lots of people out at Freedom Place in DC this afternoon for the #WomensMarch
“Trump is an unstable penis!” sign is something I didn’t expect to see today
This woman apparently drove 500 miles to march. There are others from out of town, too, from what I’ve heard.
Women of Piscataway are up on stage...one is singing as hundreds look on, waiting to march
Thousands are now marching in DC for the #WomensMarch
We’ve reached the Supreme Court where the Women’s March has met a line of pro-life protesters. There’s now a sort of standoff with the two groups
A pro-ACB speech/group is surrounded by people chanting “RBG” ... there are multiple speeches going on in front of the Supreme Court
There’s a lot going on right now — different groups, different protesters, all converging right now in front of #SCOTUS
People from the Women’s March yell at a pro-life protester for being pro-life but not wearing a mask:
Earlier: There were a lot of extra Handsmaid’s outfits and some adults outfitted a younger girl with one:
A pro-life protester chants “we have the votes” into a megaphone as Women’s March attendees, including a 12-year-old (according to her sign) counter-protest, chanting “our bodies, our choice”
A woman gets into a confrontation with the pro-life protester and tries to steal her phone. Other people from the Women’s March, including some who are counter-protesting, step in to try and keep the peace
Meanwhile, a pro-life protester and a pro-choice protester are having a megaphone battle.
Many pro-life and pro-choice protesters had conversations with each other about the subject, despite the differing opinions
While some people from the march confronted pro-life protesters, many others seemed to move on/ignore them and continued on with the event

Some different characters outside of the Supreme Court this afternoon — women dressed as “Handmaids” and someone in a hospital gown with a Trump mask on
Some words being exchanged between Trump/Barrett supporters and an anti-Barrett protester. The anti-Barrett protester made comments about the woman’s weight, her smoking habits and no mask. The woman spoke over him with her megaphone:
They 2 sides came to some agreements and had a productive convo:

“Elections have consequences,” the woman said to start. “I want to keep the court actually balanced, I don’t want to pack it with a bunch of liberal activist judges.”

They ended the chat with a fist bump.

Decent sized crowd out in front of Walter Reed just after 7pm — Trump drove by earlier to wave at his supporters
A group of people driving by stop and give the middle finger/yell at the crowd. Pro-Trump crowd responds by cheering & waving flags — one says “we love you” while another calls them “losers”
Earlier, I was told that people from all over the country have been sending food to the crowd outside of Walter Reed for the past few days — lots of pizza

Big crowd and a moment of silence for Breonna Taylor this evening in Louisville:
We are marching, I believe to a sanctuary area. Curfew is at 9 and it’s currently 8:30
We’ve made it to the sanctuary — a Unitarian church — a little before 9.

The church is offering bathrooms, food and a place to rest

Decent crowd and lots of media in the park ahead of the Breonna Taylor announcement.

The guy speaking is pushing for a peaceful protest. He says “white man check white man, Black man check black man.”
We’ve just listened to the charges.

Brett Hankison has been charged with 3 counts of wanton endangerment. No charges for the other officers and these are the only charges for Hankison. $15,000 bond:
Here’s how the crowd reacted after hearing these are the only charges brought today + the bond amount. People are angry, sad:
