Seattle, Washington / 3 AUG 2020 / Protestors Demonstrating outside of Seattle City Council Members Homes

SITREP: Protesters have shared Seattle City Council Members’ personal information and have been demonstrating outside the homes of Members who have not fully supported the push to defund the police.

RECOMMENDATION: Activists have demonstrated outside of the Mayor’s residences and are now turning on politicians who they feel do not support the defund police movement enough. Continue to avoid protests and do not engage with groups of any size as activists continue to target residential areas in the greater Seattle area.
