#CapitolHillAutonomousZone: Dancing In The Streets Before The Tanks Roll in....
Protesters who have formed a free zone in Seattle to keep police out spent the night dancing in the street, dining on free vegan pizza and watching movies under the watch of armed guards, after being deemed 'domestic terrorists' by a furious President Trump who has ordered Democrats to regain control of the city.
The protesters have formed a six-block area they are now calling CHAZ - Capital Hill Autonomous Zone - in revolt against the police.
There are armed people there but the majority, according to those at the scene, are peaceful. Some Seattle residents say they have walked through the area with their dogs at night and that it is 'more peaceful' than when the National Guard were there. There are free stations offering sunscreen, hand sanitizer and snacks, and plant and flower gardens have been set up.
On Wednesday night, the occupants voted on a movie to watch in the street. They settled on the 1990 film Paris is Burning.
Trump has ordered that the block be dismantled.
'Radical Left Governor [of Washington, Jay Inslee] 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 [sic] IMMEDIATELY. MOVE FAST!' he continued. 'Domestic Terrorists have taken over Seattle, run by Radical Left Democrats, of course. LAW & ORDER!' he tweeted. Source
