A coalition of liberal groups opposing Judge Neil Gorsuch's Supreme Court nomination are plotting "People's Filibuster" protests in 14 states and Washington on April Fools' Day.
The protests are aimed at attracting "thousands" of protesters to listen to "everyday Americans" speak out against Gorsuch and President Trump's agenda. The People's Filibuster is the brainchild of the People's Defense, which includes such liberal groups as the Working Families Party, Service Employees International Union and NARAL Pro-Choice America.
"Please join thousands of other Americans to protest and rally against the extreme agenda of President Donald Trump, including his nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court," the group organizing a New York protest wrote on its Facebook page. "The People's Filibuster will take place in cities across the U.S. and feature everyday Americans speaking on why they object to the extreme agenda of the president and how the appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court would advance that agenda for decades to come."
Protests are scheduled for April 1 in Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, D.C., Florida, Illinois, Maine, Missouri, Nevada, New York, Ohio, South Dakota, Washington and Wisconsin.
