Seattle, WA / August 16, 2020 / Activists Focus on Private Property Owners in Demonstrations in Gentrified Neighborhoods

SIGACTS/SITREP: Seattle Evening March, which has ties to several violent demonstration groups appears to be focusing their attention on gentrified neighborhoods and harassing residents in these areas.  


RECOMMENDATION:   Capitol Hill, the Central District, and areas to the south (Rainier Beach, Columbia City, etc.) will be likely targets in the coming weeks as these areas have recently experienced significant residential development. Use caution in these neighborhoods, and do not engage with demonstrators if they are encountered in these areas.
