SEATTLE (ALBOENEWS) — Police clashed with protesters on Sunday, amid protests from “Solidarity against hate” and the “Freedom Rally” groups, according to KING5 in Seattle.
The “Solidarity against hate” group tried to split off towards the “Freedom Rally” group, which caused the confrontation between protesters and police.
Police in riot gear were at the scene and several protesters were observed clashing with police. There has also been video taken that shows the use of Flashbang grenades as well as pepper spray or a chemical irritant.
Protesters have been ordered to disperse, but it does not appear to be breaking apart much at this time.
