LOS ANGELES (AP) — More than 100 women and men gathered on the steps of Los Angeles City Hall to protest U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh after he cleared a key procedural hurdle in a Senate committee despite allegations of sexual assault.

The group held a Friday noon hour moment of silence for survivors of sexual assault and heard calls for withdrawal of the nomination and to vote senators out of office.

The demonstrators chanted and held signs with such sayings as “Truth not Power,” ″Cancel Kavanaugh” and “Believe Survivors.”
