The end is near: Seattle Mayor gave CHOP occupants deadline for the barriers to be dismantled
Seattle mayor Jenny Durkan is going to finish CHOP ultimately. About that she informed the inhabitants of the occupied autonomic zone at the meeting and gave them deadline for when the city will dismantle the barriers.
According to the reports form the place, Mayor told the anarchist protestors that taking down the barriers is scheduled on Sunday. The barriers around the East Precinct won’t be removed yet.
It was prohibited to livestream the meeting or tweet about it, report says.
This is the second attempt by the city to clear the zone. The previous time the protestors didn’t allow the city workers to access the area and they retreated.
It should not have taken three shootings, one murder, and the ransacking and looting of multiple businesses for the Seattle Mayor to shutdown CHAZ/CHOP. Too many Democrats across the country are turning a blind eye to the mob. This must stop.https://t.co/nxNfNb2DKs— Senator Ted Cruz (@SenTedCruz) June 26, 2020
And despite that the end of CHAZ was visibly near, as many of the occupants had left the zone due to the loss of interest, the occupation is not completely over. The new group of protestors called itself “Black Collective Voice” has tried to seize the leadership in the area.
The group’s leader, Naudia Miller said, "If the people of Seattle choose to hold the space at CHOP, Black Collective Voices will stay here."
"We will not be bought off," she added, "we will not attend meetings where the goal is to buy us off, we are here to dismantle systemic racism."
