Around 90 protesters met at Seattle Central before marching around Capitol Hill on Oct. 22nd, the national “day of protest to stop police brutality, repression and criminalization of a generation.”
The protesters were a mixed bag of personalities: a former police officer that witnessed police brutality, teen activists, old-timer idealists, and one very angry talkative anarchist (fun photo below). The night consisted of shouting chants–sometimes toward the cops and pedestrians–burning a flag, and stopping periodically in the street to educate onlookers.Protestors held photos of people killed by police around the nation, posters with a list of lost lives, and a collection of signs with various quotes and statistics.
Here are my photos from the protest.
