When:8/16 at 1pm, Where: Seattle City Hall
Why: Every Friday from 1-2 a group, called Fridays for Future, of mostly youth Climate Strike in front of Seattle City Hall. They are asking extra people go out on 8/16 to show support for Zoe. Every week they use sidewalk chalk to show their message for climate action. This past week an adult handed Zoe a bottle of spray on chalk that turned out to be chalk paint. As soon as she realized they began making plans to clean it up, but the police intervened and took a 13 year old away in handcuffs.
Holy SHIT, @seattlePD. Making a 13-year old w/ sidewalk chalk cry, & cuffing her?
“You realize she’s 13 years old?”“That’s great, we’ll figure it out at the precinct. We’re not going to sit here while we’re surrounded by a bunch of people who want to make their opinions known.” pic.twitter.com/iCgPkktRF1
