Activists demonstrate nationwide on October 17 to denounce Supreme Court nominee; avoid protests as a precaution

TIMEFRAME expected from 17/10/2020, 12h00 until 19/10/2020, 11h59 (America/Chicago). COUNTRY/REGION United States, Washington, DC

Event

Women's rights groups and other activists gathered in the capital Washington, D.C., and across the country on Saturday, October 17. The demonstrations were reportedly part of a Women's March against President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, whom opponents feel may infringe on women's rights. In the capital, demonstrators gathered at Freedom Plaza, and planned to march to the US Capitol and US Supreme Court buildings. Similar rallies were reported elsewhere, including in New York City, where around 300 people gathered at Manhattan's Washington Square.

Meanwhile, a conservative women's group, the Independent Women's Forum, said it was organizing a counterprotest in the US capital on Saturday. There have been no immediate reports of clashes between demonstrators amid the rallies.

A heightened security presence and localized travel disruptions should be anticipated in the vicinity of any rally. Further demonstrations surrounding the issue are to be anticipated in the coming days.

Advice

Those in the US are advised to monitor developments, avoid large gatherings as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
