A group of protesters carrying signs and chanting "Believe survivors, cancel Kavanaugh" gathered at the intersection of Main and High streets Thursday, Sept. 27.

The walkout was planned to coincide with Christine Blasey Ford's testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee about her sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Later on in the hearing Kavanaugh will take the stand and answer questions from the committee.

The local protest was part of a nationally coordinated campaign. Many drivers showed support by beeping horns or flashing a thumbs up to the crowd of about 20.
