A group of people garbed in black marched by the Supreme Court as night fell on Friday in Washington, D.C., protesting the ruling that overturned Roe v. Wade and ended the nationwide right to abortion.

The demonstrators are part of a group known as Bite Back, according to an editor for WTOP. The front line was composed of people holding black umbrellas, and they held a banner that read: “They cannot control our bodies.”

The New York Post’s Steven Nelson (formerly of the Washington Examiner) tweeted a video of the group chanting “F*** the church, f*** the state, people must decide their fate.” He also suggested that people affiliated with antifa were among the gathering and told the Washington Examiner he saw one carrying an antifa flag.

Demonstrators have rallied outside the Supreme Court and around the country since the ruling Friday in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case. Law enforcement officials, including those in riot gear, could be seen deploying in places around the high court throughout the day.

A group of protesters also gathered outside the Virginia home of Justice Clarence Thomas, and more demonstrations are being advertised to take place outside the houses of the conservative justices in the days to come.

Among the roving protests through the streets of Washington on Friday night, reporters spotted an American flag being set on fire and demonstrators chanting “Burn it down.”
