Wobbly shot protesting neo-fascist

A Seattle IWW member was shot in the stomach at a protest against neo-fascist Milo Yiannopoulos. The fellow worker (whose name has not yet been released by police or supporters) is in critical condition. Funds are being raised for medical care, lost wages, etc.: https://www.crowdrise.com/medical-fundraiser-for-iww-and-gd…

This newspaper report includes information about the 34-year-old fellow worker, who remains in hospital: http://www.seattletimes.com/…/police-release-man-arrested-…/

Police have released the shooter, “pending investigation.” He claims he thought the victim was a white supremacist, and fired in self-defense. This sort of argument, apparently, is good enough to free folks who shoot at unionists; one suspects police would be far less receptive were it the other way around.
