#Seattle, #WA: #CHAZ / #CHOP Analysis – Glimmers of Hope, Failures of the Left

Seattle. WA. Out of the national uprising in protest of the racist police murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis emerged a movement occupied space of 8-10 blocks in the Seattle neighborhood of Capitol Hill. The space began “as an accident” when on the evening of June 7 a man drove drove into the protests and shot a demonstrator. Quickly the crowds set up barricades at several intersections and an occupy style encampment emerged as the the mayor ordered the evacuation of the East Precinct police statement encompassed within the zone. Originally deemed the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) the space was soon renamed Capitol Hill Occupied Protest (CHOP) and remained in place until July 1 when Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan ordered police to clear out the space after a series of late night shootings. Written in late July 2020, this critical analysis piece was based on discussions and experiences of our Seattle Black Rose/Rosa Negra comrades.

#Seattle, #WA: Black Bloc Attacks Two Police Precincts in One Night

Seattle. WA. On Monday night, August 24th, a crowd of roughly 200 in black bloc gathered at Cal Anderson Park ready to march. The park has been the site of multiple stand-offs with the police recently, as a previously unoccupied shelter-house in the park has been cracked open and taken over to provide hot meals and shelter for unhoused people. Police have multiple times swept the park and arrested anyone literally caught in their way, yet the occupation of the building continues, providing much needed support services for the most vulnerable in our community at the height of a pandemic.

#Portland has gotten smarter, developed, and adapted to be able to keep the fight alive for well over 70 days and counting

Portland. Oregon. August 16. 2020. As we develop and hone our skills to adapt to what the police throw our way, and look to other countries with strong and militant social struggles, one wonders how long before street fighting with the police in Portland, OR will start looking more like Santiago, Chile where the primera línea (first line or front line) have evolved and developed to effectively battle the police and push them back regularly.

#Portland, #Oregon: Cops are getting desperate

Portland. OR. The local cops in Portland are getting desperate.

They come back night after night and keep fighting.
