Occupy Seattle

As protesters in Occupy Boston were getting arrested, word came down that police were moving in on Westlake Park and warned the Occupy Seattle campers to vacate or face expulsion. I shuttled there at midnight and hung out til about 4 a.m., filed a couple of photos and got some raw footage for video. It was a good assignment, except for the pouring rain.

No arrests were made, and the occupiers stayed. Because the city doesn't allow them to use tents, most sleep under tarps.
