For the fifth consecutive year, the Pacific Northwest showed up and threw down in the streets for May Day. A cursory glance shows that Seattle had a bangin’ block party in front of the juvenile detention center, Olympia went off in the downtown streets with police clashes and multiple businesses getting attacked, and Portland threw the fuck down with fires and at least one damaged police vehicle. Keep an eye out for report backs on here and over at itsgoingdown.org.
What also happened was a slew of arrests in both Olympia and Portland. In Olympia, 9 people were arrested, primarily QTPOC from the Olympia community. There were also arrests in Portland. Please donate to these support links and share them widely in your networks.
