Anti-police, anti-Nazi demonstrators march through Olympia
OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Demonstrators marching through downtown Olympia chanted anti-police slogans, broke windows and took a bat to a truck before dispersing.
The Olympian reports that the demonstrators walked the streets on Saturday night chanting “Nazis out of Oly” and other slogans.
Many in the crowd wore black and covered their faces with bandanas. A few carried bats.
They passed out fliers saying they were there to counter a Nazi gathering that had been called for Saturday night in Olympia.
They carried an anti-police banner. Some lit fireworks; others knocked over trash cans.
When a white truck drove through the crowd, one of the demonstrators hit it with a bat. They also smashed the glass door at City Hall.
