Antifa Has Taken Over Six Blocks In Seattle And Released This List Of Demands…Are You Paying Attention Yet?

(Right Country) – Antifa, which has just been designated a terrorist group by the federal government in a long-overdue move, has set up an “autonomous zone” which covers six blocks of Seattle.

The fact that this isn’t major national news should concern you deeply.

The terrorists, The Gateway Pundit reports, are advocating for “folks with firearms” to take shifts defending their barricades.

The group has set up barricades at the border of their zone with certain areas for food and public speech.

This has been reported on by Andy Ngo, a Seattle-area journalist who has long been covering Antifa’s activities and was assaulted at an event in Seattle last year.

On Tuesday, the group released a lengthy list of demands.

From Medium:

Given the historical moment, we’ll begin with our demands pertaining to the Justice System.

  1. The Seattle Police Department and attached court system are beyond reform. We do not request reform, we demand abolition. We demand that the Seattle Council and the Mayor defund and abolish the Seattle Police Department and the attached Criminal Justice Apparatus. This means 100% of funding, including existing pensions for Seattle Police. At an equal level of priority we also demand that the city disallow the operations of ICE in the city of Seattle.
  2. In the transitionary period between now and the dismantlement of the Seattle Police Department, we demand that the use of armed force be banned entirely. No guns, no batons, no riot shields, no chemical weapons, especially against those exercising their First Amendment right as Americans to protest.
  3. We demand an end to the school-to-prison pipeline and the abolition of youth jails. Get kids out of prison, get cops out of schools. We also demand that the new youth prison being built in Seattle currently be repurposed.
  4. We demand that not the City government, nor the State government, but that the Federal government launch a full-scale investigation into past and current cases of police brutality in Seattle and Washington, as well as the re-opening of all closed cases reported to the Office of Police Accountability. In particular, we demand that cases particular to Seattle and Washington be reopened where no justice has been served, namely the cases of Iosia Faletogo, Damarius Butts, Isaiah Obet, Tommy Le, Shaun Fuhr, and Charleena Lyles.
  5. We demand reparations for victims of police brutality, in a form to be determined.
  6. We demand that the City of Seattle make the names of officers involved in police brutality a matter of public record. Anonymity should not even be a privilege in public service.
  7. We demand a retrial of all People in Color currently serving a prison sentence for violent crime, by a jury of their peers in their community.
  8. We demand decriminalization of the acts of protest, and amnesty for protestors generally, but specifically those involved in what has been termed “The George Floyd Rebellion” against the terrorist cell that previously occupied this area known as the Seattle Police Department. This includes the immediate release of all protestors currently being held in prison after the arrests made at 11th and Pine on Sunday night and early Saturday morning June 7th and 8th, and any other protesters arrested in the past two weeks of the uprising, the name Evan Hreha in particular comes to mind who filmed Seattle police macing a young girl and is now in jail.
  9. We demand that the City of Seattle and the State Government release any prisoner currently serving time for a marijuana-related offense and expunge the related conviction.
  10. We demand the City of Seattle and State Government release any prisoner currently serving time just for resisting arrest if there are no other related charges, and that those convictions should also be expunged.
  11. We demand that prisoners currently serving time be given the full and unrestricted right to vote, and for Washington State to pass legislation specifically breaking from Federal law that prevents felons from being able to vote.
  12. We demand an end to prosecutorial immunity for police officers in the time between now and the dissolution of the SPD and extant justice system.
  13. We demand the abolition of imprisonment, generally speaking, but especially the abolition of both youth prisons and privately-owned, for-profit prisons.
  14. We demand in replacement of the current criminal justice system the creation of restorative/transformative accountability programs as a replacement for imprisonment.
  15. We demand autonomy be given to the people to create localized anti-crime systems.
  16. We demand that the Seattle Police Department, between now and the time of its abolition in the near future, empty its “lost and found” and return property owned by denizens of the city.
  17. We demand justice for those who have been sexually harassed or abused by the Seattle Police Department or prison guards in the state of Washington.
  18. We demand that between now and the abolition of the SPD that each and every SPD officer turn on their body cameras, and that the body camera video of all Seattle police should be a matter of easily accessible public record.
  19. We demand that the funding previously used for Seattle Police be redirected into: A) Socialized Health and Medicine for the City of Seattle. B) Free public housing, because housing is a right, not a privilege. C) Public education, to decrease the average class size in city schools and increase teacher salary. D) Naturalization services for immigrants to the United States living here undocumented. (We demand they be called “undocumented” because no person is illegal.) E) General community development. Parks, etc.

We also have economic demands that must be addressed.

  1. We demand the de-gentrification of Seattle, starting with rent control.
  2. We demand the restoration of city funding for arts and culture to re-establish the once-rich local cultural identity of Seattle.
  3. We demand free college for the people of the state of Washington, due to the overwhelming effect that education has on economic success, and the correlated overwhelming impact of poverty on people of color, as a form of reparations for the treatment of Black people in this state and country.
  4. We demand that between now and the abolition of the SPD that Seattle Police be prohibited from performing “homeless sweeps” that displace and disturb our homeless neighbors, and on equal footing we demand an end to all evictions.
  5. We demand a decentralized election process to give the citizens of Seattle a greater ability to select candidates for public office such that we are not forced to choose at the poll between equally undesirable options. There are multiple systems and policies in place which make it impractical at best for working-class people to run for public office, all of which must go, starting with any fees associated with applying to run for public office.

Related to economic demands, we also have demands pertaining to what we would formally call “Health and Human Services.”

  1. We demand the hospitals and care facilities of Seattle employ black doctors and nurses specifically to help care for black patients.
  2. We demand the people of Seattle seek out and proudly support Black-owned businesses. Your money is our power and sustainability.
  3. We demand that the city create an entirely separate system staffed by mental health experts to respond to 911 calls pertaining to mental health crises, and insist that all involved in such a program be put through thorough, rigorous training in conflict de-escalation.

Finally, let us now address our demands regarding the education system in the City of Seattle and State of Washington.

  1. We demand that the history of Black and Native Americans be given a significantly greater focus in the Washington State education curriculum.
  2. We demand that thorough anti-bias training become a legal requirement for all jobs in the education system, as well as in the medical profession and in mass media.
  3. We demand the City of Seattle and State of Washington remove any and all monuments dedicated to historical figures of the Confederacy, whose treasonous attempts to build an America with slavery as a permanent fixture were an affront to the human race.

    • To think George Washington marched his army to a group of colonialists refusing to pay a whiskey tax…what is Trump waiting for a civil war to start?!!

      • The city and state should take control and they’re not able or willing, then a demand in writing should be made to the White House. I can see the left using this as propaganda to the current administration. It’s not funny but, it’s kind of nice to see the left eating itself up.

      • I do believe that if this Antifa group is allowed to Occupy a portion of any city or government entity without consequences, it already has.

  1. This is that moment when you roll in the military and restore order in a way these petulant children will understand. In other words it’s time for a complete smackdown. In addition to that any government officials who assisted this outrageous behavior must be arrested for inciting an insurrection against the government. That is how you deal with this. If this is not done this foolishness will happen everywhere. This has gone on long enough.

  2. I agree with the teaching of true history. although the blacks may not like it as much as they expect they will. All the other demands are just stupid. They are not demanding equality , they are demanding privilege . Color of your skin has nothing to do with Entitlements.

    • looking at a statue of a long dead person is not necessarily glorifying their memory but with the ability to observe as a historical reminder of unjustified norms Is an important aspect of learning history. See how people who hate Jews detest the holocaust museum. Do we abolish that simply because of their hatred or do we remember and learn from history. These dimwits that hate America are very ignorant and have not been taught to think rationally and as an individual.

      • Socialism is about rewriting the past as they want to see it. Those monuments and anything from past time are reminders of real events and that’s a road block for socialists. It makes it hard for them to convince everyone to buy into their new created history. They figured out that just by crying “I’m offended” they get their way. The dangerous part is that many buy into it and allow it to happen. Because for those of us that lived through communism and dictatorship we see that history repeating itself in US. Millions of people around the world died and continue to die under the socialist concept. Socialism is a concept impossible to implement for as long as human race is driven by material possessions (Including money) and/or power.

  3. They certainly need to incorporate more GOD into their world…at least they gave a list of specifics that we must NOT give them…but seems they prefer havoc over reasoning & the terrorist label opens another dimension to shut them down quickly…just be prepared for many flare-ups scattered everywhere but vigilante & private militia will also take passive action with presence in the strategic antifa target areas….

  4. Now I suppose to some anything to do with Black persosn is ANTIFA, but when the actual rubber meetsthe road this does not hold up to questioning. Now ANTIFA is nothing new it started back in 1920s in Germany and spread throughout the World, to stop Facism in its tracks and has done so in many way through the years, just because hey fight against institutional racism does not mean that BLM are part of ANTIFA in any way. Now why Trump and Barr would pick out ANTIFA is no secret, they would not want to point out that the Far Right Group, BOOLAGOO BOYS are just as active in the demonstations, to instill violence which would discredit the protesters.
    There needs to be change in the policing in this USA, and reorganization of police departments with outside investigators who investigate reports of Police wrong doing, like goes on in most other countries.

    • I’m sorry to inform you that ANTIFA in it’s present incarnation are the actual fascists. Their deeds give them away. Jesus said…that you can tell a tree by its fruit. The fruit of ANTIFA is fascist. They are a terror organization with really one purpose destroy the American government. They have been trying to do this by also labeling President Trump a fascist. That by the way is an hilarious assertion. These individuals are spoiled petulant children who probably have never heard the word no before. Now it seems that parental mismanagement and college brainwashing has led to a series of actions that need to be dealt with forcefully….a spanking if you will.

      • NO they are terrorists! ZERO tolerance and complete sterilization of the affected area is the only thing they will understand. Make an example of them for their followers to see. That is the threat they bring to the table and that is the only answer they be able to comprehend

  5. “AGAINST ALL ENEMIES FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC!”
    I lived in Washington state from 1974 – 2000! The incremental creep of the AmeriKan Soviet Socialist (ASS) mule party was clearly obvious and obviously clear! Now, the entire Pacific coast has gone Soviet Socialist!

    Apprehend, zip tie, photo and finger print, inject the Hillary Clinton GPS tracking device, load onto C-130 cargo aircrafts, 5 hours later, the rear cargo door opens, 🪂 parachutes are optional), remind the individuals that in the event of a water landing, splashing attracts sharks, “WHEN THE GREEN LIGHT COMES ON, YOU WILL EXIT THE AIRCRAFT!”
    On the way down, you might recapitulate your validity and “justify your existence!”

  6. “Put me in coach, I am ready to play!” (The uniform is a bit snug – butt that will change!
    I Promise to defend the Nantio, the Flag 🇺🇸and the Republic for which it stands against “ALL ENEMIES FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC!”

  7. Every person holding up in the zone should be arrested and charged with treason they should also serve very very long prison sentences.

  8. Since Antifa has been classified as a TERRORIST Group, how is it they feel justified in making Any demands !!!! This Antifa Group Must Be Wiped Out Of Existence !!! So we wait to see what the State of Washington and Washington, DC will do ?!?! Meanwhile, we can let Antifa stew in their own justification contained within those six blocks !!!! This is not Freedom Of Speech !!!

  9. And what are they going to do if their demands aren’t met? They’re already begging for food because the homeless took it from them. This needs to be cleaned up quickly with the full force of the law. This insurrection can’t be taken lightly and it can’t be allowed to get traction.

  10. Who is in charge of this City & State have they been killed by the rioters. This is not only a attack them it’s a attack on the United States. If the state officials don’t have the balls to alleviate this problem. These so called Democratic cities and states stood by and watched their cities vandalism and burnt down .If th state officials can’t handle it make a phone call,the Calvary will mount up an save the day.

    • First of all, you misspelled DumbocRAT!

      From what I see, the DumbocRAT “leaders” (and I use the word leaders VERY loosely) are inciting insurrection. The are ALLOWING this bullshit to go on to force Trump into a corner where he has to enact the Insurrection Act of 1807.

      The DumbocRAT “leaders” are not fit to govern. They have violated their oaths of office, and should be IMMEDIATELY REMOVED, AND CHARGED WITH VIOLATING THE OATH, AS WELL AS TREASON

  11. Where is the law? Run and hide? Send in the marines now! Let this treason fester and all hell will break out. End it now before it spreads!

  12. Cut the power, phones, internet, pull troops from McCord AFB and Fort Lewis!
    After a few of the domestic terrorists watch the punk – puke next to them have their head explode from a sniper a mile away, they will crawl down to Puget Sound and float away!
    “TAKE NO PRISONERS ALIVE!”
    Note to the pukes 🤮 in the 6 block region: “ALWAYS SAVE THE LAST ROUND FOR YOURSELF!”
    Leave a note for your mommy!
    I think Seattle has a waste to energy plant that will incinerate your carcass and generate steam /electricity for Pikes Market! 😳🤔🧐😀😀😀😅😀😃😂🤣

  13. They think OUR President is going to let this continue. But he’s DEFINITELY not. He gave Miss Jenny the chance to HANDLE this, herself. But what has she done??? She is in apartment that only her ARMED Secret Service Agents know about. And she is locked in.

    Nothing but a COWARDLY Democrat that’s surrounded by armed agents; while the people that are STUCK in there with their businesses are being EXTORTED for money by these “ CRAZED LUNATICS”. Goes to show how much Democrats truly CARE for the people.

    But J bet all of them vote RED this November. I truly PRAY all these people stay safe. And hopefully Trump will make his move before the weekend is over. One of the journalists from FOX did get to stand at the barricade & talk with one of the lunatics. He said not ONCE did George Floyd’s name come up. I don’t know why he was surprised. They aren’t doing this CRAP for him. 🤬🤬🤬

    “TIME TO END THIS MESS”

  14. If there is so much as 1 piece of Federal Property, a Post Office or even a Post Box that is in a position of danger within that 6 block area, set up a more substantial barricade just 10 feet outside their perimeter and give anyone 60 seconds to surrender to Federal troops for prosecution. Anyone still inside may suffer the consequences of their actions. Just a suggestion.

  15. The time for action is now , if we let them get away with this it will start happening everywhere, we don’t negotiate with TERRORIST and we shouldn’t start now , Millions of us took an oath years ago that has no expiration date, Terminate with extreme prejudice 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 Semper Fi
