Apparently there is a group of woke activists who organize shut downs in DC. Mary wrote about one of their bizarre shutdowns that featured twerking in the street and a lot of litter. And Mike covered one of their proposed shutdowns if Biden lost the 2020 election.
They have a website devoted to organizing their various SJW flocks to turn out for shutdowns. The site covers one they held last December to “shut down the Capitol” in order to open “up space for a new kind of politics.” That obviously didn’t produce the desired results (or any results since the radical left Biden agenda thankfully remains stalled).
Now they are planning to descend on DC and disrupt the United States Supreme Court by creating a blockade that stops anyone from getting to their job in the building. Or something.
The group “Shut Down DC” plans to “blockade the streets around the Supreme Court” on Monday, according to its website, as part of a protest that aims to “shut down” the Supreme Court as it prepares to hand down a ruling that could overturn Roe v. Wade. https://t.co/CRuZThYPnd

Want to #ShutDownSCOTUS with us on Monday but don’t have an affinity group? That’s ok! Meet us at Stanton Park at 6:45am. It will be hot so make sure to bring water, sunscreen, a hat, a mask, and whatever else you need.

They’ll apparently be joined by the radical climate change group Extinction Rebellion.
We’re joining ShutDownDC & friends to shut down the Supreme Court on Monday, June 13 to stand up for abortion rights & women’s rights! Our democracy is in crisis and we are committed to taking action.

Fox News reports:
A left-wing group is hosting a “shut down SCOTUS” protest on June 13, with plans to “blockade” the streets surrounding the Supreme Court in light of a potential decision that could overturn Roe v. Wade being released.
The group, ShutDownDC, announced the protest on its website and states that 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 “blockade” the streets around the Supreme court, according to the website.
. . . . According to its website, the group chose June 13 since it is one of the Supreme Court’s opinion issuance days.
The protest will consist of smaller “affinity groups” of up to 20 people per group, and each group will have a “jail support liaison who can meet arrested folks” when they are released.
Must be nice to know that disrupting the work of the highest court in the land because you suspect they won’t rule as you wish will result in pretty much immediate release . . . if arrests take place at all. Many of the J6 political prisoners, by contrast, are still rotting in hellish conditions. But as we are rapidly learning, supporting radical left causes has its privileges.
Needless to say, people have thoughts about this planned disruption of SCOTUS (via Twitchy).
Sounds awfully inssurrectiony https://t.co/WqeeAso1U2

According to the rules this is an insurrection

Shutting down SCOTUS? Sounds like insurrection. I’ll be waiting for the June 13th congressional hearings. Looking forward to people held for a year without bail. Looking for Chuck Schumer being charged. Only difference is that hopefully no unarmed protesters will be shot dead.

I suppose as long as they don’t honk it’s OK, right?

Sounds like a coup.
