Just a day after Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan forced the city police to surrender the East Precinct police station to Antifa, City Councilwoman Kshama Sawant unlocked City Hall so that the domestic terrorists could take that as well and now, the city’s leadership has allowed the group of militant miscreants to keep a 6-block area near the East Precinct station as their own.
Early on June 9th, Durkan ordered the police to surrender the station to rioters.
And early Wednesday, Sawant unlocked City Hall for the group.
And later on Wednesday, Antifa and closely associated Black Lives Matter took over an entire section of Seattle, named it the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ?), and started to organize an armed defense of the surrounding barricades – a stunning reversal to the left’s usual anti-gun, anti-border wall stances.
Sawant, a vehement anti-capitalist, has spoken out against city police using crowd control tactics like mace and tear gas on rioters.

“The police have inflicted tear gas, mace, rubber bullets, flash-bang grenades, curfews, arrests and other repressive tactics on Seattle activists and residents — including children — in an attempt to bully and silence the protest movement,” she said.
