|Title||Protestors and police on I-5, Seattle, May 5, 1970 |
|Caption||Thousands of protesting University of Washington students and faculty members blocked Interstate 5 for nearly an hour as they marched to a rally at the U.S. Courthouse downtown. The crowd had gathered on campus to demand that the university take a moral stand against the killing of four Kent State University students by National Guardsmen and the bombing of Cambodia by U.S. forces. About 30 state troopers in riot gear blocked the crowd at the Roanoke interchange. The crowd, in a congenial mood, sat down and continued to chant. After some impromptu negotiations with the police, the marchers left the freeway and followed Eastlake and Fairview Avenues to the courthouse. |
