Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone

I don't know that much about it at this point but reading this article. ... ce-protest

Makes me wonder if this could be the very very very begining of the end of capitalism in some way and path to a new sustainable society?

Wouldn't that be grand?
But I'm afraid it's more likely to be the start of a confrontation that can grow very ugly very fast.
So far, most police forces have been restrained; most municipal governments have been smart, which was wonderful to see. My concern is that if Trump understands that he can't have martial law, he'll settle for chaos. Once he starts up his rabble-rallying, it won't take much to convince his faithful that the new Corona upsurge was caused, not by his bad policy, but by the protesters. Then the random shooting begins.

I can well imagine it clearing out peacefully. But like any other achievement, autonomy has to be earned rather than declared. Pls send supplies.

Some resonance with this earlier summer in San Francisco.
