Washington Gov,. Inslee helps organize anarchist attack on Seattle-Taccoma International Airport. Officers from at least four police agencies are present but are barred from helping passengers attacked by rioters, who shut down parts of the airport. When police do nothing, it is because their superiors have ordered them to do nothing

The national effort is coordinated by and a new instant network,, which has a website created on December 19, 2016 and which is based in Britain.

This includes a summary of the KIRO-TV news report, the press release, the Ground Game webpage and the Whois information on Ground Game.



Immigration Order Outrage. KIRO-TV, January 28, 2017.

A thousand protesters or more have closed down much of the airport and the light rail. Gov. Jay Inslee started the protest of the ban on travelers from selected Muslim countries and said that this is where the Trump Administration ends: Inslee said he "is drawing the line right now". A federal judge has issued an injunction against any deportations of such travellers. One Somali was deported to Heathrow, but nothing is known about him. Two people were placed on an airliner to be deported by federal authorities, but they were taken off by someone and provided attorneys. 

The ACLU has pledged to block the deportations and find them attorneys. Attorney General Bob Ferguson pledged that the state would fight any deportations and said the order was unAmerican. Rep. Suzan Del Bene and Gov. Inslee stated any deportations are illegal. 

In New York, a judge issued an emergency injunction to block any deportations of people with valid visas: It is estimated that this affects 100 people. Attorney Lee Gelerent called on people in airports to report any attempt to deport anyone so it can be blocked. 

Escalators and baggage areas were blocked and protesters prevented arriving passengers from getting their baggage and leaving the airport. Many signs proclaim the person carrying them to be Muslims. and Microsoft vowed to defy the ban. Microsoft has 76 employees who are citizens of the affected countries.

Followup report: Protesters are attacking people trying to get their baggage and leave the airport, shouting "This airport is closed". Police from many agencies are present but are allowing the attacks on travellers. Police are present include: Federal Way Police Department, Tukwila Police Department, Seattle Police Department and Wshington State Police. No police entered the airport terminal occupied by the rioters.

So far there is no URL for video but this the page where it would appear:

Dear MoveOn member,
On Friday, Donald Trump tried to block Muslims and refugees from coming to this country. On Saturday, America fought back. And it's massive.
Thousands gathered at JFK airport in New York, demanding the release of refugees and others detained after Trump's orders. They sang, they chanted, they showed up with love and with might. Have a look at the Facebook Live stream from our friends at Working Families Party—it was a sight to behold:

Then, just hours ago, a federal judge in New York issued a stay on Trump's ban for refugees and visa holders currently stranded at airports.1That's a huge first step, but it doesn't yet undo the ban. Meanwhile, what started in New York is spreading.
Thousands have gathered at airports in Boston, in San Francisco, in Denver, and in upwards of 34 other cities demanding that America uphold our core values, welcome refugees, and say "no" to any religious test on immigration to this country. Many protests are happening right now. Some will continue throughout the weekend, or even longer.
Check out this volunteer-generated, fast-growing list of airports and community spaces where protests and vigils are happening.
(The site isn't hosted by MoveOn, and these events are being propelled by a range of individuals and groups—this is a moment of massive grassroots movement activity. Please note: details of these events are changing rapidly as individuals and organizations hustle to respond. As you make your plans, please check the site regularly for updates.)
People who've shared stories about the airport protests today have reported big, diverse, and peaceful crowds. In some airports, groups of lawyers have been among the crowd—waiting to speak to refugees and visa holders who've been denied access to counsel. Members of Congress from Representative John Lewis to Senator Elizabeth Warren, local city officials, and other prominent leaders have joined the airport protests in many cities.
If you can join a peaceful protest in your area, you'll help show the Trump Administration, the country, and the world that Americans will resist hate and will resist Islamophobia and will instead unite in the face of injustice.
Some of the protest organizers will have signs to share, but some may not—so feel free to make a sign to hold, or you can print one of MoveOn's signs to bring with you. Just click here.
Some protests are growing so large that vendors at the airports are running out of food and water, so if you're able to join, consider bringing supplies such as bottled water, granola bars, and other nonperishable snacks to share.
These are anguishing times, but the love and the energy on display at airports across the country are our best hope for preserving our American values. Because this is what resistance looks like. We're not done marching.
Thanks for all you do.

Seattle-Tacoma International Airport Organizes Resistance to Trump Ban

Statement by Port of Seattle Commission in response to Trump administration executive order banning immigration
“This airport is owned by the citizens of King County and our responsibility is to steward it for their wellbeing and long-term future.  The Port of Seattle Commissioners, Tom Albro, Courtney Gregoire, Stephanie Bowman, Fred Felleman and John Creighton are here today to express our concerns over the immigration ban executive order that was issued late last night.  As the government that operates this airport, this executive order runs counter to our values.  America is great because we are a land of immigrants and that is what made us great to begin with.
“As the operators of this airport, we are deeply concerned that the abrupt nature of the executive order did not allow adequate process for public agencies such as ourselves to provide service that travelers and families expect and deserve.  We took it upon ourselves to request a full briefing from Customs and Border Protection to understand how they are addressing this situation.  We respect these hard working federal employees who are under tremendous strain.  However, when we felt that traveler needs were not fully met, the Port of Seattle stepped up.  We started providing private waiting areas for families here at the airport and connecting families to lawyers who can help advocate for their rights and the rights of their loved ones.
“We met with some individuals who are impacted by this executive order.  One of the impacted families happens to live right here in this community, and happens to be employed by this airport.  We will continue to stand with you.”
