At 8:00 PM a group of 20 people gathered a little North of the Juvenile Detention Center. People stood and waited till about 8:30 PM. Then began marching around the Detention Center about 3 times, chanting “Our passion for freedom is stronger than their prisons” and “cops and judges we dont need em, all we want is total freedom” People lit off roman candles and M80s while others broke off the automatic parking gates on both entrances to the Juvenile Detention Center. Paint bombs were also thrown against the facade of the Detention Center and anarchist graffiti was written on several surfaces.. No police where around during this time.
After the 3rd time around 15 people eventually met up with 20 others who arrived fashionably late and police finally started to appear. The group of people stopped near the cells of the Juvenile Detention Center on the South side and people began chanting, lighting off fire works, and trying to communicate with the prisoners inside. 3 of the prisoners banged on the windows and yelled back “I appreciate what your doing” and “I love you”. Some people in the crowd began to talk back to the prisoners through a megaphone expressing their love and solidarity with those locked up. As the demo was winding down one last “Happy New Year!” was shouted and everyone cheered while the remaining fireworks were lit off. After this many people dispersed without incident.
It's important to note that one comrade was arrested during the demo. As of now we are not sure what the charge will be, but we don't expect to be anything serious. Jail support is already taken care of and we are awaiting their release, which we suspect will be sometime late tonight or early this morning.
Let's make 2012 the year where their world ends and ours begins. The Puget Sound Don't Fuck Around.
