A crowd of activists marched on the home of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on Monday night in protest of his decision to reject a challenge to Texas’ new law allowing private citizens to sue providers that perform abortions after a fetal heartbeat can be detected.

Videos posted to Twitter by Daily Caller journalist Mary Margaret Olohan show activists gathering at Chevy Chase Local Park in Chevy Chase, Md., before marching over to Kavanaugh’s home, where the reporter says the lights were on, though it appeared that no one was home.

Olohan reported that a number of police were stationed around Kavanaugh’s home. Protesters reportedly booed the officers, with one activist telling the police to, “Go do you actual job, you’re just f***ing standing there.”

The protest was organized by the left-wing group ShutDownDC.

A Facebook event by the group said, “Brett Kavanaugh: You’re going to hear from us directly.”

It added that the group planned to use Monday’s protest to tell the justice to “keep your oppressive” ideology “out of our bodies” and to demand his resignation.
