Antifa and Black Lives Matter activists have taken over a section of the city of Seattle. On Tuesday night, they took over the city hall.

Jay Inslee, the governor of Washington State, claimed during a press conference on Wednesday that he knows nothing about this.

Anagha Srikanth of The Hill describes what is unfolding:

Seattle protesters take City Hall, declare police-free autonomous zone, demand mayor resign

As protesters around the country demand that cities defund their police departments, one group of demonstrators in Seattle is out to prove they don’t need the law enforcement officers.

On Tuesday night, protesters from what is now known as the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” (CHAZ) were joined by other demonstrators as they briefly occupied Seattle’s City Hall. Speakers called for the resignation of Mayor Jenny Durkan and the defunding of the Seattle Police Department before leaving the building about 1 a.m., chanting “defund SPD” as they returned to the zone.

Located in the Capitol Hill district, the “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” surrounds the Seattle Police Department’s East Precinct. Police opened the area to demonstrators on June 8 after closing the streets in response to protesters demonstrating against police violence after the death of George Floyd. The East Precinct remains staffed, but Assistant Chief Tom Mahaffey said in a statement they were taking measures for the safety of officers and the building.

Governor Inslee was asked about this on Wednesday and said it was news to him. Watch:

Either Inslee is dangerously unqualified for office, or he is lying. What’s happening in Seattle is national news.

A real insurrection has taken over part of the state’s largest city and the governor is looking the other way. Unreal.
