Capitol Hill

Seattle: Banner, Fliers, & Smoke Bomb Dropped For May Day

This afternoon, on May Day, a banner reading, "Raise the Minimum Rage (A)" was hung at a busy intersection in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle. Fliers detailing the history and significance of May Day as well as a brief analysis of gentrification were also distributed and thrown. The slogan on the banner is in reference to the debate over the potential raising of the minimum wage in Seattle to a $15/hour minimum. An orange smoke bomb was also tossed into the street. The text from the flier is included below.
