More Than 20 People Arrested For Downtown Protest

We didn’t cover the protest that shut down most of downtown Seattle earlier because we were busy (sorry about that, especially if you were stuck downtown and didn’t know what the shit was going on). But we’ve got some info on the outcome:

SPD arrested more than 20 protesters near 2nd and Madison for “pedestrian interference” this evening, according to SPD spokeswoman Renee Witt. Witt says none of the protesters—who shut down downtown during rush hour in a call for immigration reform—were booked into jail.
