As of this hour, Working Washington is holding a rally and protest in Westlake Park. The event is expected to last until 5 p.m. At 1:15 p.m., following a meeting with fast food workers at City Hall this morning, Councilmember Kshama Sawant will join in a boycott and walk the picket line at the downtown McDonald’s located at the corner of Third Avenue and Pine Street. As a result of these activities, motorists may encounter delays in the surrounding downtown area this afternoon, possibly impacting the start of the afternoon commute traffic. If you are driving through Downtown this afternoon, please plan accordingly.
