In what I am sure will be just the beginning of such demonstrations, a large group of protesters gathered in Seattle’s Westlake Park this afternoon after marching there from various locations. There was a heavy police presence, but from my vantage point the event was largely peaceful and the police let the protesters do their thing without a lot of interference. From what I have heard on the news, the sitution has escalated somewhat since I left.
