Since a King County prosecutor’s decision not to charge Seattle police officer Ian Birk for fatally shooting woodcarver John T. Williams, protesters have gathered in the streets downtown on several occasions. Here’s a shot of the group that marched last Friday, February 18th, just after turning on 1st Avenue from Pine and heading toward Belltown. The group left flyers explaining the reason for the protest in their wake.
