A civil society organization is planning a march in Seattle (Washington state) on Monday, January 20, to coincide with Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Participants plan to gather from 11:00 (local time) at Garfield High School, before beginning a march to Downtown at 12:30, and finally rallying at Westlake at 14:00.
A heightened security presence and localized transportation disruptions are expected along the march route.
Martin Luther King Junior Day is a federal holiday in the US to mark the birthday of Martin Luther King Junior. It is celebrated on the third Monday of January each year.
Individuals in Seattle are advised to monitor the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate localized transportation disruptions, and adhere to any instructions issued by local authorities.
