MAY DAY! MAY DAY!

May 1st is International Workers' Day, a commemoration of the Haymarket affair, which was  an 1886 clash between police and protesters in Chicago. Most May Day protesters are peaceful, but events often draw the Anarchist Black Bloc, a group that often demonstrates by causing property damage, smashing windows and clashing with police.

In Seattle, Phoenix Jones, along with his team mates Midnight Jack and El Caballero hit the streets to monitor the Anarchist Black Bloc. Rather than speculate, interpret, or comment further, let me simply share this video so you can see what happened next.
