I love a (permitted) parade
America. Land of the free. Home of the brave. Where even a small protest march must beÂ accompaniedÂ by a police escort at all times.
On Wednesday June 27th the weekly “Student Debt Noise Brigade” organized by #MicCheckWallStreet marched through the Capitol hill Neighborhood of Seattle.
Their message? “Student Debt Kills Dreams”. That tuition hikes and debt peonage should not and will not be accepted.
Clearly this is a controversial and dangerous message to be spreading, as the Seattle Police Department felt the need to accompany them with a large contingent of police on bikes, motorcycles and patrol cars.
The march went without incident, other than the applause of several residents from windows and businesses. They plan to march again on on July 11th.
