Seattle Marches In Solidarity With Ferguson, MO And All Those Affected By Police Violence

Demonstrators gathered at Westlake Park to rally in solidarity with Ferguson, MO and others affected by police brutality. The rally soon led to a march down the sidewalk on Pine to 3rd Ave. As the 100+ activists and protestors crossed 4th Ave on their way up Pike St., they abandoned the sidewalk to march in the street. Protestors marched to 12th Ave, followed by SPD bicycle units, where they gathered in front of the East Precinct of the Seattle Police Department chanting “Hands up, don’t shoot” and “Being black is not a crime”. After less than 30 minutes of blocking the South bound lane of 12th Ave in front of the police station, demonstrators marched down Pine and back to Westlake Park.
