    The protest is meant to stop Donald Trump’s pick Brett Kavanaugh from being confirmed as a Supreme Court justice in light of recent sexual misconduct allegations, which the nominee has vehemently denied.

    The #CancelKavanaugh protest is currently underway in Washigton D.C. The demonstration promoted online under the hashtad #CancelKavanaugh started at 12:30 p.m. at the E. Barrett Prettyman US Courthouse, where Kavanaugh is a federal appeals court judge.

    This year’s second Women’s March is set “to do whatever it takes to #CancelKavanaugh,” the event page reads.

    The march in Washington D.C. is hosted jointly by a number of charities and funds, such as the Women’s March, UltraViolet, CPD Action, Demand Justice and others. A number of celevrities are expected to attent the event, including Whoopi Goldberg and Alicia Keys.

    More demonstrations are scheduled for the next few days.

    US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is accused of alleged sexual abuse incidents in the 1980s by three women: Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick. He has vehemently dismissed the allegations as wrong, branding them during his testimony last Thursday “a calculated and orchestrated political hit.”
