SEATTLE (AP) — Dozens of people gathered in downtown Seattle Friday night to protest the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody and some black-clad anarchists smashed up a storefront window.
The rally started in the city’s International District, and then moved north to downtown. Protesters chanted :” I can’t breathe” and “Black Lives Matter.”
Video showed several people smashing windows at an Amazon Go grocery store. Police on bicycles attempted to move people along. Protesters dressed all in black – so-called antifa or anti-fascist groups – are often fixtures at rallies in the Northwest.
Floyd was a black man who was killed after an officer put his knee on his head and neck. The officer was arrested on criminal charges Friday.
