Activists Protest SODO Sweeps Amid All Star Week

View at Twitter

That’s a Wrap

On Tuesday, FAR-LEFT activists threatened to disrupt the Major League Baseball All Star Game (@mlb) with an RV protest in SODO. Instead, Stop The Sweeps Seattle just displayed some banners before the game outside T-Mobile (@TMobilePark) and left pamphlets on car windshields. They also scrawled chalk messages on the sidewalks and plastered “Harrell Horror Show” stickers (@MayorofSeattle) on nearby signs. For whatever it’s worth, they’re also targeting the Seattle City Council. Always interesting conversations and debates with these folks when they take the time to explain their position. The question now, how long until the RV’s and tents return to this part of SODO?

What’s the Next Play?

Stop The Sweeps Seattle volunteers have been a major thorn in the side of Mayor Bruce Harrell and are against his homelessness policy. No doubt they’re preparing for another protest.
