May Day (Friday, May 1st) is traditionally a day to honor workers. In the past three years May Day has featured protests against social injustice, with demonstrations and marches which deteriorated into vandalism and civil disorder in downtown Seattle.
In hearings before City Council in 2014, it was said that people of Seattle should be able to express concerns for justice, but that those who are just looking for an opportunity to do vandalism and looting should not be given an advantage on May Day. It is advised that you plan ahead for safety on May Day if you work or shop in downtown Seattle or pass through on bus connections.
