(FREE BEACON) – A radical leftwing group is laying plans to shut down the Supreme Court in response to a leaked opinion that overturns Roe v. Wade, the Washington Free Beacon has learned.
#ShutdownDC is planning to block streets adjoining the Court to prevent the justices and their staff from reaching their chambers. Organizers acknowledged their operations go beyond constitutionally protected activity, and they referenced the likelihood of arrests and clashes with law enforcement during a Tuesday night briefing the Free Beacon monitored.

"One of our goals would be to expand the current political crisis by shutting down the Supreme Court," one of the organizers said. The group planned the blockade for Monday, June 13, a day when the Court will likely hand down opinions.
