Jun 3rd, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Scenes of what the protests are really about (as well as accounts from the latest police over-reaction); Durkan promises to listen to police-violence claims; marches as potential ‘spreader events;’ nobody knows how many Seattle students are in distance learning.

Remembering comix creator Noel Franklin; more poignant demonstrators and more police (over) reaction; 85 COVID cases on one Seattle-based factory trawler; suburban ‘communities of color’ have lost the most jobs in the lockdown.6/2/20:
