Year after year the city of Seattle is destroyed by a group of anarchists rioting on May Day.

The protesters demanded higher wages for workers, in a city that approved a bill to make the minimum wage $15 an hour, and offer work permits for illegal aliens, NBC News reported.

Molotov cocktails, bricks and flares were thrown by the anti-capitalists.

One officer was hit with one of the cocktails, another with a rock and another police officer was bitten during the melee, according to NBC News.

Eight men and one juvenile female were arrested.

The destruction was captured on video and pictures and shared on social media.
