Amy Schumer detained alongside anti-Kavanaugh protesters

Capitol Police around 4 p.m Thursday began arresting an unwieldy mob of some 300 protesters who have staged a sit-in protest inside a Senate office building's atrium.

Comedian and actress Amy Schumer was reportedly among a group of anti-Brett Kavanaugh protesters arrested outside the Supreme Court in Washington, D.C., on Thursday.

In another video posted on Twitter she is telling a girl named Zola that Amy and her mother were about to get arrested.

The two appeared in the 2018 comedy "I Feel Pretty". "I think we are going to get arrested and we're so proud of you".

"Yes", Schumer replied as she was being led away, carrying a sign reading, "I Believe Anita Hill".

The Hill reported that instead of zip-tie handcuffs, protesters were given different colored bracelets by police.

Redman, who said she is a sexual assault survivor, said it "was so upsetting to watch Dr Ford's testimony and then watch the way that Kavanaugh disregarded truth".

She added, "Men who hurt women can no longer be placed in positions of power". "We will win. A vote for Kavanaugh is a vote saying women don't matter". Kirsten Gillibrand outside the "Emily and I just wanted to thank you all so much for showing up today", Schumer told the crowd.

So the thousands of demonstrators streamed into the Hart building, chanting and singing against Kavanaugh, whom multiple women have accused of sexual assault.

Thousands of women, including scores of sexual assault survivors, marched the ¾-mile strip of Constitution Ave. from the federal courthouse in D.C. where Kavanaugh now presides to the steps of the Supreme Court on Thursday.

In another video from the scene, Schumer talks directly to a woman's camera to say hello to her daughter.
