The last artist is being evicted from the Washington Shoe Building at
163 S. Jackson in Seattle at midnight tonight.  The Shoe Building used
to be on the official Seattle Art Walk -- but today the owners are
telling the city that they have never rented to anyone and *everyone*
there is squatting.  As of midnight, there *will* be squatters.  The
city has apparently heard of the plans to squat, because today there
were two large Washington Sheriff's Department officers in front of the
building and more officers moving into the area.

We are going to have an active May Day in Seattle.
