The police managed to eliminate the “autonomous zone” of protesting Americans in Seattle, Washington, according to ABC News.
The dispersal of the “autonomous zone” began on Wednesday morning, July 1, by order of the mayor of the city, Jenny Durcan. The police dispersed the protesters and cleaned up the territory that the protesters occupied, declaring it the “Autonomous Region of Capitol Hill.” During the operation, 32 people were detained.
A spokeswoman for US President Kaylee Mackinani said, “Seattle has been freed from the anarchists.”
In dozens of cities in the United States and other countries around the world since late May, protests against police brutality over the death in Minneapolis of a blackguard George Floyd, who died after a gross arrest, have been taking place. In a number of cases, the protests ended in riots, clashes with the police, robberies, looting, and pogroms.
