    I had like 5 people text me this morning after that stupid fucking Fox News article. Here's another take, albeit from an extremely left-leaning source:
    https://www.thestranger.com/slog/20...chill-day-at-the-capitol-hill-autonomous-zone

    I think it's been mostly peaceful, but now there are stories that the mayor and police want to reclaim the area, which I think will unfortunately lead to some more clashes.

    Would be cool as shit if it was allowed to just persist, but I also don't think that's realistic. I keep thinking of Freetown Christiana in Copenhagen, but there are no businesses in that area. And I think a lot of the Freetown stuff is to buy drugs, which is a touchy issue.

    Very interesting story.

    it's one of the most popular local newspapers in Seattle, but I'm sure your sources have a better handle on the situation.

    There’s no way this lasts forever. Police and the mayor will ‘reclaim’ it at some point. I’m interested to see what the CHAZ can get via negotiations

    Yea I agree. Hoping they get some meaningful concessions at least that can lead to real change.

    Ah yes, Randy Weaver, the guy who openly defied a bench warrant for a year and a half before a 12 day standoff starting after he and/or his compatriot opened fire on federal police, and Cliven Bundy, who stole from the government for two decades, defeated enforcement of regulations at gunpoint, and whose sons seized a federal building for 40 days, really got fucked over when you compare these situations.

    This just reminds me of a super urban style of a hippie commune type setup.

    I don't see any real issue with it as long as the local residents are good with it in the short term. The long term concerns are if they can maintain the situation after people get bored with it and or the funding starts running low.
