Dozens of protesters were arrested in the Russell Senate Office Building after refusing to cooperate with police Monday, chanting against Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

Nearly 50 protesters gathered in the Russell Rotunda on Capitol Hill, yelling together, “Kavanaugh’s disgusting. That’s why we’re disrupting.” The protest comes one day after a second woman accused Kavanaugh of alleged sexual misconduct. Protesters received multiple warnings, but dozens refused to leave and were arrested.

WATCH:

The protesters who were arrested were lined up and loaded into busses, where they were reportedly going to be processed and charged for their behavior.

Protesters have continued to gather in the U.S. Capitol or in Senate office buildings since Kavanaugh’s nomination was announced. Dozens of protesters filled Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley’s office in protest of Kavanaugh Thursday to eat sandwiches and discuss their concerns about the Supreme Court nominee. (RELATED: Portly Protesters Descend On Grassley’s Office, Eat Dozens Of Sandwiches)

The arrests also come as protesters across the U.S. have planned a “National Walkout” at 1 p.m., where they plan to get up and leave wherever they are, including work and school.
