At least two officers were injured in the attacks.
(This story will be updated as the night goes on) The “Anti Capitalist March” has become an annual affair in Seattle on May Day. This year’s edition features police in riot gear, who closed in on the black clad anarchists as soon as the march started. Windows were smashed, fireworks were lit and thrown at buildings and police. Several police began pepper spraying the crowd, as the protesters threw debris at them. One officer used some kind of voltage based stun gun, and began firing into the crowd.
