Roadway to SEA Airport reopens after pro-Palestine protest; 46 people arrested

The arrivals and departures were fully blocked for nearly three hours Monday afternoon.

Excerpt from KING-5 TV:

A group of protestors blocked the roadway leading to the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport Monday afternoon.

According to the Washington State Department of Transportation, all lanes of state Route 518 at Airport Drive were blocked just before 3 p.m. and the roadway reopened at around 6 p.m.

According to Perry Cooper with SEA, 46 protestors were arrested. It is not yet known what they were all charged with, but a spokesperson with the Seattle Police Department said they would likely face some disorderly conduct charges.

According to SEA, as of 5:15 p.m., vehicles that were blocking the roadway were being towed and the expressway to the airport was still blocked. 

=====

Protestors at SEA and around the world held these protests on Tax Day as a symbolic way for them to show their frustration with America sending money to Israel. In Seattle, protesters held signs, tied themselves together and wore white suits covered in red paint.
