Hundreds of Seattleites marched and rallied yesterday in support of Ukraine. Sponsored by the Ukrainian Association of Washington State, the event included rallies at Seattle City Hall and Seattle Center, and a march through downtown along Fourth Avenue.
At City Hall, organizers held a flash mob and called for air support in Ukraine. Along the route, marchers shouted, “No fly zone,” “Stop bombing us,” and “Glory to Ukraine, glory to the heroes.” At the Seattle Center Mural Amphitheatre, speakers included leaders from Seattle’s Ukrainian community and local politicians. They played the Ukrainian and United States national anthems, and held a moment of silence for those who had died.
Pro-Ukraine protests also occurred worldwide on Saturday.
