As protesters demand the resignation of Mayor Durkan they have taken over the area in Seattle Capitol Hill calling it “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone”
“It’s like checking in with somebody to get into your own home. Just making it so people can get into their buildings. Keep the zone however they want, and move the fencing so people can go home.”
– Mckenzie Diamond resident in Capitol Hill
Armed guards are stationed around the area demanding anyone who wants to gain entrance who lives in the area to show ID. There are also reports of attempting to make business owners pay in order to operate in the area.
“We’ve heard, anecdotally, reports of citizens and businesses being asked to pay a fee to operate within this area. This is the crime of extortion. If anyone has been subjected to this, we need them to call 911,”
– Assistant Chief of Police Deanna Nollette
The police precinct in the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” had been shut down earlier this week as protesters became violent clashing with law enforcement.
Police have been ordered to stay away from Capitol Hill and only respond if there is a 911 call.
ANTIFA has issued a list of demands including defund the police and get rid of the police department, get rid of all youth jails, retry anyone of color who is currently incarcerated, decentralize elections, free college and much more.
President Trump Has condemned Governor Inslee and Mayor Durkan’s response to the situation on Twitter.
“Radical Left Governor @JayInslee and the Mayor of Seattle are being taunted and played at a level that our great Country has never seen before. Take back your city NOW. If you don’t do it, I will. This is not a game. These ugly Anarchists must be stooped IMMEDIATELY. MOVE FAST!”
– Tweet from President Trump
Police are looking to negotiate with the leaders of the, “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone,” but they are unsure of who is in charge of the whole operation.
