May Day is being marked around the world with anticapitalist rallies and marches.
In Seattle, many peaceful protesters have taken part in the day's events. But they are being overshadowed by some masked activists who brought chaos to the downtown core today (May 1).
According to the Seattle Times, about 50 black-clad protesters smashed the windows of banks, clothing stores, and a courthouse. A Porsche Cayenne was spraypainted with an anarchist symbol.
Riot police reportedly responded with batons and chemical spray.
