Seattle BLM

Monday’s commute for Seattle drivers was a nightmare as Black Lives Matter protesters blockaded the entire highway. Twelve people were arrested in connection with the incident during which “BLM” was spray-painted on the interstate.

The movement began around 12:30 p.m. PT when the group blocked the freeway as well as the collector-distributor lanes near Yesler Way. The entire Northbound I-6 near Yesler Way was shut down while Washington State Patrol moved as swiftly as possible to remove protesters blocking lanes.

Trooper Rick Johnson tweeted that Washington State Patrol was responding and would be arresting those actively blocking the freeway.
