PROTESTS: 2 today in West Seattle during general strike; business-closures reminder

After regional Black Lives Matter leadership called for a general strike and silent marches today, some asked if any marches/protests were planned in West Seattle. We just got word of two this morning:

Sara sent word of that one – yoo can gather either at the Admiral Junction (California/Admiral) or Morgan Junction (California/Fauntleroy) at 2 pm to march silently to The Junction (California/Alaska).

Also: A group of parents/teachers will gather at 1 pm outside Gatewood Elementary (4320 SW Myrtle).

P.S. Reminder that many businesses have chosen to close to support the general strike – we’re continuing to update this if you have an addition – thank you!

    Why not call on these struggling businesses to spend the day fundraising or donating a portion of proceeds to BLM instead. Please help me understand this.

      Because they are struggling like you just said. Most are paying minimum wage with no bonus pandemic pay, they can’t just allocate $10,000,000 to split between 11 organizations like Amazon did

    I wish the closed restaurants would update that they are closed on the Delivery Apps so I don’t keep wasting time ordering from closed restaurant. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
