Leftist group attempts "autonomous zone" in Washington DC

Post #1

Post by AgnosticBoy »

Demonstrators outside the White House have declared a “Black House Autonomous Zone,” in apparent imitation of the secessionist enclave in Seattle.

According to video from on-scene reporters at Lafayette Park, the demonstrators are marking the Zone by, among other things, desecrating St. John’s Episcopal Church.

One video from the Daily Caller showed the letters “BHAZ” spray painted on the columns holding up the traditional “church of presidents.”

By Monday evening, tents had been pushed off the street, but some remained on the sidewalk. Protesters had pushed construction barriers and sections of metal fence into the street in the area to create roadblocks. Someone had posted a sign spray-painted on plywood: “BHAZ: Black House Autonomous Zone.”

The sign appeared to be a play on the area that protesters have cordoned off in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood dubbed the “CHAZ.”

For Debate:
Why is the media silent on the LEFTist groups that are not peaceful?
Why do they ignore the evidence by calling it "peaceful" protest?
How do you stop these anarchists from forming their police free zones?

Kudos to the mayor of Portland Oregon. He stopped an autonomous zone from being formed by bringing in heavy police presence right before it started. Democrat governors perhaps could take a few lessons from him. Don't be naive and let it form and call it a "festival" or a "summer of Love". You nip it in the bud.
Portland police prohibit 'autonomous zone' from being set up. PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Police in Portland, Oregon, say they cleared an area in the city's Pearl District early Thursday when demonstrators tried to set up an “autonomous zone” similar to what protesters have enacted in Seattle
