US police broke up the autonomous zone of Seattle

The city authorities decided to disperse the protesters who took control of the site in the city center almost a month later.





Police in US Seattle during the crackdown on the so-called “Autonomous zone” detained at least 13 people. This was reported by the local police Department on Twitter on Wednesday, July 1.

On the night of July 1, the mayor of the city, Jenny Durkan, issued a decree, after which the police began to eliminate the “zone”. According to the police statement, this was necessary due to the fact that recently two teenagers were killed and several people were injured in skirmishes inside the “Autonomous Zone” and near it.


The cleanup operation began early in the morning, with up to 100 police officers involved.

The mayor's decree assumes that all protesters who are on the territory of the “Autonomous zone” violate the emergency regime.


We will remind, demonstrators earlier declared an “Autonomous zone” in the Central District of Seattle. Later, they occupied an abandoned police station. Some protesters demanded that the city's police be disbanded and that the rights of black people be stopped.

President Donald Trump claimed that the city was taken over by “internal terrorists”.
