UW student demonstrators march

From The Associated Press

About four-dozen officers, including police on horses and bikes, escorted about 100 students, union members and other demonstrators who marched from the University of Washington Wednesday afternoon to banks in the nearby University District in Seattle.

The demonstrators chanted “Banks got bailed out, we got sold out” as officers separated them from Chase and Wells Fargo branches.

The march was organized by a group calling itself the Defend Education for the 99 (percent) Coalition.

Marchers were peaceful but vocal, chanting, “We are the 99 percent and so are you!” and “They say cutbacks, we say fight back.”
