«We are at this location today because it's very symbolic of everything that is... Еще happening in our justice system», adding that «we are here in protest of him [Harvey Weinstein] but also in protest of the American judicial system which seems to have no honour or respect for women,» said Amber Tamblyn, one of the protesters
