Daily March returns to Capitol Hill with march throughout 12th Ave – CHS Capitol Hill Seattle News

21August 2020

(Image: @joshch)For weeks, Seattle’s Everyday March– including lots of activists and protesters part of the occupied protest this summer on

Capitol Hill– has focused its efforts on spreading out the message and needs of the city’s Black Lives Matter movement to communities and areas far from Pike/Pine and the East Precinct. However the group returned to Capitol Hill’s streets Thursday night with an arranged march from Volunteer Park to 12th and Pine and a call to the area’s citizens to sign up with the ongoing push to defund Seattle Police and build stronger social and neighborhood

programs.”Out of your window and into the streets,” the crowd of around 100 called out as it marched from near 15th and Possibility to 12th Ave and onto the East Precinct for a rally and speeches.

Livestreaming reporter and Capitol Hill resident Joey Wieser covered the development consisting of the call-outs to residents, a stop in front of 12th Ave’s Violet restaurant, and encounters with a couple of individuals opposed to the message along the way including one man who unsuccessfully tried to obstruct the street with his automobile.

Seattle BLM organizers have actually continued their push following the Seattle City Council’s approval previously this month of a package of spending plan cuts to SPD that they say is the start of defunding the department and changing the method the city polices itself. The King County Equity Now and Decriminalize Seattle neighborhood groups are now focused on establishing a “2021 participatory monetary procedure” with city leaders this fall and have actually gotten in touch with Mayor Jenny Durkan to devote to her pledge to make $100 million in funding readily available to the programs, a dollar amount the mayor claimed was being put toward Black Lives Matter objectives in her own spending plan strategies.

The 9 PM occasion brought the Everyday marchers back to Capitol Hill after current weeks of smaller demonstrations on the Hill that have actually included bouts of property damage and clashes with cops– and another cops sweep of Cal Anderson Park. Thursday night, the marchers remained clear of disputes including the altercations with individuals along the march who tried to

argue with organizers or stop the procession. There was no reported property damage and no reported arrests. Saturday, the Daily group is planning to ” march on the governor’s estate”

in Olympia to inform Jay Inslee,”If Black Lives Matter, show it!”
