(WFLA) — Dozens of witches plan to gather in New York City to cast a spell on newly-confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh next Saturday night.

Catland Books, a bookstore in Brooklyn is holding a “Ritual to Hex Brett Kavanaugh,” according to invites they sent out over Eventbrite. 

“[Brett Kavanaugh] will be the focal point, but by no means the only target, so bring your rage and all of the axes you’ve got to grind,” the invite reads. 

The event’s organizer, Dakota Bracciale hosted three hexes against President Donald Trump last yearThe Huffington Post reports. 

“Witchcraft has been used throughout history as a tool and ally for people on the fringes of society who will not ever really get justice through the powers that be,” Bracciale told the online newspaper. “So they have to exact their own justice.” 

“We wanted to have an act of resistance,” Bracciale said in an interview with TIME. “It’s about having space for survivors of sexual assault who are not going to be silent and who don’t want Brett Kavanaugh to serve as a symbol of defeat.”

Bracciale plans to hold a second ritual called “The Rites of the Scorned One,” for survivors of sexual assault who want to speak out.

“We’re raising visibility and letting people know they’re not alone with the monsters,” Bracciale said. “Even the witches are coming out of the woodwork to stop this.”

The store is charging guests $10 to attend the event.  Half of the proceeds go to the Ali Forney Center and Planned Parenthood.
