A left-wing group is holding a ‘shut down SCOTUS’ protest on June 13, with plans to ‘block’ streets surrounding the Supreme Court in light of a potential ruling that could overturn the release of Roe v. Wade.
The group, ShutDownDC, announced the protest on its website and says it will begin at 7 a.m. on June 13 at Stanton Park in Washington, D.C.
As part of the “shut down SCOTUS” protest, the group will “block” the streets around the Supreme Court, according to the website.
“On June 13, one of the Supreme Court Ruling Days in 2022, we plan to block the streets around the Supreme Court to stand up for the transformative change our communities need,” the website reads. “Right now, our political system is in crisis. Times of crisis can either be opportunities to break through inertia and win transformational change, or opportunities for the establishment to further entrench the status quo.”

According to its website, the group chose June 13 as it is one of the Supreme Court’s advisory days.
The protest will consist of smaller “affinity groups” of no more than 20 people per group, and each group will have a “prison liaison who can meet those arrested” when they are released.

Organizers of the outdoor event are also encouraging attendees to wear a mask and consider taking a COVID-19 test before attending.
The same group also held a “vigil” outside the home of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito on May 9 in response to the leaked Supreme Court draft decision that could overturn Roe v. Wade.

“Judge Alito’s draft opinion that would strike down Roe v. Wade is more than alarming. It would not only allow states to ban abortion (which is already de facto unavailable to many people who need it, in especially people from marginalized communities), but could also be used to allow states to ban contraception, same-sex marriage, LGBTQ protections, and even interracial marriage,” the website reads. “Monday Evening May 9, we will hold a vigil for all those rights that Alito is threatening to take away from us.”
