Seattle Installs Concrete Barriers to Protect #CHAZ #CHOP Armed Leftist Occupation Zone

6 mins read

The government of Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan (D) on Tuesday installed concrete barriers on city streets on the boundaries of the area occupied by armed leftists to prevent vehicles from entering. One lane is reported to be left open to allow access by emergency vehicles. Police will not be allowed in except to respond to life-threatening crimes.

The concrete barriers are encased in plywood so occupiers can paint the new barricades with slogans and ‘art’.
