There was plenty of protests this week: Seattle's May Day riots, a fight to keep an Arctic oil rig out of Elliott Bay, teacher walk-outs over education funding and an uproar over a Seattle Seahawks player accused of domestic violence. 

Bill Radke debates this week’s symbols and substance with Todd Myers of the Washington Policy Center, Crosscut’s Knute Berger, and 'The C is For Crank' blogger Erica C. Barnett.
