SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – A coven of witches in New York is gathering together to place an actual hex on newly-appointed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Hosted by Catland Books, a “metaphysical boutique and occult bookshop,” the event taking place on Oct. 20 has sold out of tickets and attracted the interest of thousands of people, according to the posting on its Facebook page.
Event organizer Dakota Bracciale told Newsweek the public hex is intended to “make Kavanaugh suffer.”
The ritual will include effigies, coffin nails, graveyard dirt, and a spell.
Bracciale says this isn’t the first time a Brooklyn bookstore has organized a hex; it hosted three last year on President Trump.
A second ritual will also be performed after the hex on Kavanaugh.
The second hex, called “The Rites of the Scorned One,” will “validate, affirm, uphold and support those of us who have been wronged and who refuse to be silent any longer,” according to the listing on Facebook.
Many in attendance will reportedly be sexual assault survivors, based on feedback from planned participants.
Tickets cost $10 and organizers say a quarter of all proceeds will go to the Ali Forney Center, a group that supports homeless LGBT youth. Another quarter of the proceeds will be donated to Planned Parenthood.
