Protest for Ethiopian Civil Rights blocks downtown Seattle streets

Seattle on Tuesday as it made way to the Federal Building.

The protesters — many of them members of the East African community — want Washington senators to pressure Ethiopian leaders or cut U.S. aid in the wake of the ongoing mass killingsthat they say are targeting ethnic Oromos in Ethiopia. See photos from the protest here.

Protest has minimal traffic impacts so far

The Seattle Department of Transportation reported shortly after 11 a.m. that the demonstration started at 14th Avenue and Jackson Street near the Central District.

The demonstration went through Pioneer Square around noon
