Seattle May Day: Police & Protesters Clash

The turnout for this year’s May Day immigration reform march in Seattle was lighter than in year’s past.

City officials estimated only about 500 people joined the demonstration that ended at Westlake Center without incident.

By evening, however, several hundred different protesters representing a variety of causes began making their way from Capitol Hill to downtown in a chaotic, sometimes tumultuous, scene that has become standard fare for May Day in Seattle.

Seattle police report 9 people were arrested during yesterday’s demonstrations on charges including property damage and assault.┬áToby Scott has more.
