SEATTLE —

Dozens of people gathered in downtown Seattle for May Day rallies under a heavy police presence.

Some demonstrators with their faces covered by bandanas started gathering in the noon hour in the downtown Westlake Park and taunted police with obscenities. Police said there had been no problems.

The main event is an afternoon march for worker and immigrant rights from the Central District to the Jackson Federal Building. An anti-capitalism march, which did not receive a permit, is expected to start at 6 p.m. at Seattle Community College.

Last year some marchers broke downtown windows and set fires.

Other demonstrations and rallies are planned in Olympia, Mount Vernon, Spokane, Vancouver, Walla Walla, Wenatchee and Yakima.
