Capitol Hill Occupied Protest
The protests of May 31, 2020 in Seattle, Washington, USA through the next few days were calmer than the 30th. Action continued for a week before the City finally relented and activists claimed six blocks for their own. The sounds of protest were so loud at the Seattle Police Department East Precinct in June that I couldn’t sleep.
The name of the protest was debatable, but included the CHAZ or CHOP (with differing meanings for the acronym). The name wasn't as important as what the actions signified. One message was that the activists still believed in democracy but that a massive amount of work was necessary to rebuild trust in its institutions.
