SEIU visible in Washington State arrest video

Unions and others protesting government budget cuts laid siege to the Washington state capitol in Olympia on Thursday.

Many of those protesting, and some of those arrested after disruptions inside the building, were wearing purple SEIU shirts.

An account of the story, with video, from Seattle's KING 5 is available by clicking here.

A similar telling of the story from KOMO TV is here. KOMO notes Chase bank was also a target of  Thursday's protests.

Demonstrators returned to the Washington state capitol on Friday. Judging by signs on display, many unions participated in Friday's gathering. But Friday's demonstration apparently didn't include the kind of confrontational tactics that triggered Thursday's arrests.
