A couple of hours ago, some Maine protesters; organized by a coalition that operates under the name Mainers against Kavanaugh gathered accross the street of Susan Collins Portland office as the Maine Republican weighed her vote on Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.
The protesters who were about 60 were seen holding signs that read “I believe her.”
One of the protesters, Ruth Alden, 36, speaking on why she attended the protest said she hoped Collins would vote to be on the “right side of history.”
According to organizers, the police said they’d arrest anyone standing in the street, which was, at 7:00 p.m. on a Thursday, entirely empty. Over the noise of the siren, the protestor continued to read from her statement: “They tell us, ‘She’s making a scene for attention!’” she yelled.
