Protest in Seattle

Seattle police officers have made additional arrests. Crowd continues to throw rocks, bottles and fireworks at officers..

Seattle seen numerous protests since the death of George Floyd in a arrest attempt in May. The city also hosted the now-defunct ‘autonomous zone’ in its Capitol Hill neighborhood, which was later disbanded following a string of violence and several deaths. 

This weekend’s protest in Seattle is being held in a show of solidarity with Portland, where anti-police brutality protests continue for nearly two months, routinely erupting in clashes with the federal officers.

The police have shown up, using flash-bangs and pepper spray.

Protesters in Seattle have clashed with the officers, vandalised several buildings and set fire to a construction site for a county juvenile detention facility, forcing local police to declare a riot due to “public safety risks.”

After a group of protesters set fire to the King County facility construction site, police have issued “dispersal orders” and were forced to deploy “less-lethal munitions” to clear the area and secure access to the fire for the city’s fire department.

The officers were pelted with stones, bottles, liquid-filled balloons and other projectiles, as well as “some sort of explosives,” Seattle Police Department said on Twitter.
