Seattle, WA, October 17, 2020 / 22:00 / Five Activists Arrested in Capitol Hill

SIGACTS/SITREP: On Saturday night, BLM/ANTIFA blocked traffic (including a Seattle Fire Department vehicle en route to a hospital), and spray-painted parking signs and buildings in Capitol Hill. Police arrested 5 activists after giving several orders to disperse.

RECOMMENDATION: Seattle Police Department has been able to make several arrests in recent weeks, but most of the arrestees bail out relatively quickly. Future demonstrations are likely to be groups numbering 50-60 activists at most, but Capitol Hill continues to be a hotspot for activists and sporadic property damage.
