Antifa marches with flares at Seattle pro-abortion rally

Antifa protesters joined pro-abortion activists to rally in the streets of Seattle in reaction to the leak of the US Supreme Court’s draft opinion on the possible overturning of Roe vs. Wade. Antifa carried flares and signs threatening to “burn down the UR state”.

Antifa members took to the streets of Seattle on Tuesday afternoon to join protesters. The group carried lit torches and threatening signs, according to tweets from freelance journalist Katie Daviscourt.

Part of the Antifa crowd chanted “I smell like Nazis” while carrying flares and signs threatening, “Burn our rights, we are burning the UR state.”

Daviscourt said dozens of Antifa members have joined forces with pro-choice marchers. Marchers chanted “Not your body, not your choice”.

The protest took place in the Seattle Police Department’s East Precinct. It is the district that was overthrown in 2020 when the Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) was created.

Washington Governor Jay Inslee and other state officials joined the protest to speak out against the possible overthrow of Roe vs. Wadereported The Center Square.

“Trudi and I came here to say something very simple and it’s this: Washington State was a pro-choice state, Washington State is a pro-choice state and we’re going to fight as one. hell to keep Washington a pro-choice state,” Governor Inslee told the crowd. The governor was joined by other Washington officials, including Attorney General Bob Ferguson, House Speaker Laurie Jinkins, King Dow Constantine County Executive, Congresswomen Pramila Jayapal and Marilyn Strickland and Mayor Seattle assistant Monisha Harrell. Jennifer Allen, CEO of Planned Parenthood Alliance Advocates also joined the group.

In Los Angeles, Antifa protesters also joined pro-choice protesters and threw rocks and bottles at local and federal police, Breitbart News reported. ICE Homeland Security Investigations and Los Angeles police officers responded to the protest and were attacked by protesters.

Law enforcement officials attempted to monitor the event as the crowd grew from around 30 people to more than 250. Protesters began blocking streets and intersections to disrupt traffic. The demonstrators then started throwing bottles and stones at the police. At least one officer was injured in the attacks.

Los Angeles Police Department officials tweeted out a traffic advisory and then an update confirming the attack on officers and the injury sustained by at least one officer.

After the night of protests in cities across the country, President Joe Biden added fuel to the fire by saying, “This MAGA mob is truly the most extreme political organization that has existed in American history.
