Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone

The Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, also known as Free Capitol Hill, is a self-declared intentional community and commune of around 300 residents, covering approximately ten city blocks in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. The Zone was established on June 8, 2020 after the East Precinct building was abandoned by the Seattle Police Department.

    Build a wall around it ala "Escape From New York". Every once in a while toss in some starbucks to keep them docile. If they want to secede from civilized society we should help them do it. Bob

    These dummies let homeless people in and the homeless stole all the food lol. The mayor and Inslee are doing nothing about it. This will end when the Feds go in.

    The crowd stationed at 12th and Pine is trying to prove in can operate on its own without the police no longer occupying the East Precinct.

    “Their position is that they can take care of themselves,” Hanna said.

    The group also recently published a lengthy 30-point list of demands for Seattle City Council and the Mayor’s Office. Some go far beyond what councilmembers like Teresa Mosqueda and Kshama Sawant have proposed in recent days, including a call to “abolish the Seattle Police Department and the attached Criminal Justice Apparatus.”

    Other demands on the list are more wide-ranging, including rent control, restoration of city arts funding, and free college across Washington state.


    If they can take care of themselves, I fail to understand how they can have any demands from people outside their zone.

    Three ways to deal with this:

    1. Bend over backwards to placate them in the hopes of returning to normal.

    2. Wait a few weeks and if after exhausting all reasonable approaches, forcibly remove them.

    3. Generally ignore them.  Provide no public services without payment, prevent any expansion of their 'homeland' and see how long they can take care of themselves.


    Freedom and a submissive populace cannot co-exist.

    Contain the area.  Cut power and water.

    When they want out have them line up and one at a time arrest them.  The ones left inside consider them terrorists and send in SOCOM,  2/75 is just down the road as is the 1st SFG you also have a Striker BDE at FT Lewis.

    Read about the way Tal a Far in Iraq was pacified(Operation Restoring Rights).  I was there and it worked.

    And block any inbound shipment of supplies, including food, medicine and recreational drugs....if they're autonomous they should have the ability to grow and harvest their own food, and develop their own medications.

    contain the area with NO services going in....in reality to regain law and order control the city should go in and clear it out... anything less means the city gives up and all sorts of spill out will occur ......anyone who wants to live like a responsible citizen will be provided financial aid to relocate after declaring in legally accountable writing they will act in that fashion

    Governor Inslee was a candidate for President a few months ago.  His great concern was Climate Change.  He said that in 8 years he would save the world from Climate Change.
    And a few days ago at a press conference he was asked about the Antifa takeover of Seattle, he said he had not heard of that and therefore, could not comment.
    What a liar!
    He doesn't have the guts or political will to call out the National Guard.   Imagine a gutless Lib like this as President.  Scary.

    The authorities should continue to support them and even do a little more than is reasonable.  They should make it a little easier than the occupiers deserve.  Things like maintaining power and water and giving them extra time to pay.  Then, when the place descends into chaos and gang warfare, no one will be able to reasonably say the authorities didn't let this work.

    Good thing they’re not a religious bunch. They’d all be dead by now.
