Protest March and Rally today

This afternoon there will be an Oromo Community Protest Rally and March to denounce the massacre of Oromo students by the government of Ethiopia.  An expected 400 participants will gather prior to the march at the Yesler Community Center located at 917 Yesler Way. The march, which will begin at 2 p.m., will move west on Yesler Way to Dilling Way; east on Dilling (wrong way) to Fourth Avenue; north on Fourth  to Madison Street; west on Madison to Second Avenue, south on Second to the Federal Building for the rally.  Seattle Police will escort the march which will likely produce a rolling slowdown as it moves through Downtown Seattle; motorists should plan accordingly.
