The CHOP group has blocked off six city blocks in downtown Seattle, where the East Precinct is located, as an act of protest for the police-involved death of George Floyd on May 25. On Tuesday, protesters reached an agreement with the city to reduce the occupied area to three blocks and to allow traffic. The agreement came a day after the Seattle City Council voted to ban police from using chokeholds and crowd-control devices like tear gas and pepper spray."
"It's not a slogan. It's not even a warning," Grayson said. "I'm letting people know what comes next."
"If the Seattle Police Department turns in their badges, we'll have made a move forward," Grayson said.
The group has published a list of demands for the city council and mayor, including abolishing the police, prisons, courts and criminal justice system "as we know it today."

Ms. Grayson says that she is an African forcefully brought to the US. Could she be persuaded to return to her ancestral homeland? Probably not.
Our British and Canadian cousins should not feel smug. Canada has a colonial past and the treatment of the metis by the colonial Canadian government will be examined in spite of all the modern day BS that claims Canada to be a "metis nation."
Oxford University is taking down a statue of Cecil Rhodes. Baden Powell's statue is under threat as is a statue of Churchill in downtown London. Who will be next, Gladstone, Disraeli, Joseph Chamberlain? Do you think the mob will spare the Albert Memorial, or statues of the Queen Empress herself?
I do not. pl
