Pro-Hamas “protesters” shut down major roadways in both Seattle and Chicago on Saturday. In Chicago, they were reportedly chanting, “If we don’t get no justice, then you don’t get no peace!”.
This criminal behavior is not just a minor annoyance, these are major arteries, used by first responders who are being blocked from responding to health and fire emergencies.
A group of demonstrators calling for a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas war are blocking northbound traffic on Interstate 5 in Seattle near Pine Street and just south of Denny Way, causing a 3-mile backup.
Traffic is being diverted onto eastbound Interstate 90, the state Department of Transportation posted on social media platform X.
The Washington State Patrol posted that “troopers are approaching to handle.” The Seattle Police Department asked people to avoid the area.
Thousands of additional demonstrators filled the Olive Way overpass, cheering in support of the blockade. Demonstrators chanted “free, free Palestine” and “hey hey, ho ho, the occupation has got to go.”
