Seattle Capitol Hill 'Free Autonomous Zone' Created Around East Precinct

Protester Occupied Seattle!
'Welcome to Free Capitol Hill' Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone forms around emptied East Precinct UPDATE

Posted on Tuesday, June 9, 2020 - 11:32 am by jseattle

The first night in the so-called Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone that has formed in the wake of police giving up the week-long blockade of the East Precinct was rainy and peaceful and full of speeches from activists, agitators, poets, and socialist city council members.

"I guess whatever the fuck we're doing is effective," one organizer identified as Magik said over a megaphone early in the night as police were still clearing the area. "They are going to move up. They are going to get everybody out of here and we are free to move through these streets and protest and march."

"Yesterday we were on 11th and Pine. Today we have victory on 12th and Pine. They tried to stop us!," another exclaimed.

pl ban cell-phones! - Black Lives should Matter in Congo 11.Jun.2020 07:05

anti-corruption cell vs Uber-population

or wait another 100 years and then bring down Motorola, Nokia and Apple statues?

Without slaughtering 6-plus million people in Congo for trafficking Coltan a genocide-free cell-phone would cost like a small house

statues of king Leopold II coming down in Belgium for his killing of 10 million people for rubber

it's happening today and will get even worse: Cobalt for "bike"-batteries

blood-phones suck million times more than blood-diamonds

destroyed monuments with smartphone crowds around

and the funniest thing, even fascist scum doesn't see this contradiction

ANARCHY instead of chaos
