The Protest Marches

We've seen the protests and heard the chants through downtown Pine Street to Blanchard, Westlake Avenue and up towards Southlake Union. Once we were right there at Westlake Center, another standing by watching them march past, and a third viewed from our hotel room. Like many other cities, Seattle's residents are making their voices heard. #EricGarner #MichaelBrown
"If we don't get no justice, then we don't get no peace."
We're not Americans, and while we have our opinions, it's not in our place to comment on the specifics of protests. We can only share our sentiments privately, and voice quiet support of what the protestors are standing for- justice and transparency. These topics are not so strange or distant from us. And may everyone remain non-violent and all marches remain peaceful.
"United we stand, divided we fall."
