Black Lives Matter Activists in Seattle March On One Year Anniversary of Michael Brown’s Death

Hundreds gathered at Seattle Central College in Seattle to march in solidarity with Black Lives Matter demonstrations occurring around the country in memory of Michael Brown on the one year anniversary of his death. After listening to several speakers the march proceeded through Capitol Hill, the Central District, and back, blocking intersections as those who felt compelled to speak did so. The first stop along the march route was the Seattle Police Department East Precinct at 12th and Pine where SPD blocked the sidewalk around the building and SPD vehicles parked on the street. Several more intersections were encircled along the route and people of color were encouraged to take the megaphone and express their beliefs and concerns. While SPD maintained a heavy presence on bicycles and following the demonstration in vehicles, no arrests were made.
