EDITORIAL:        CHAZ on STAGE

 

It may prove interesting to watch developments in Seattle’s new, six square block Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, an area the city has ceded to protesters since they burned the police station and moved into it during the recent riots. Most recently, two people have been shot there and the occupants apparently did not welcome the police. For the moment, some sort of commune seems to be taking shape.

Will the self-invited protesters who are now governing CHAZ produce a utopia that will show up the rest of the city or will they slink away some night, leaving their conquest worse than they found it? By seizing control instead of just trashing the place, they have put themselves on stage. They are taking a test: Will they succeed or fail?

    o jeepers another wake up call. They should have never closed the public libraries coast to coast. When they get the public libraries re-opened the kids will probably settle down…

  2. The libraries in UK are still closed and there seems to be a moratorium on mentioning them – like when we might expect them to re-open. I am starting to suspect after the last few years attacks on the libraries, closing libraries, taking their funding, sacking librarians and replacing them with volunteers, turning libraries into community centres, that libraries may be gone for good – killed off by corona (no, by sneaky manipulators using corona as the excuse).

    Otherwise why close them? they would hardly have been a hot bed of infection, and what did the authorities expect people to do when not at school/university/work, apart from riot.

    The thought that nothing in politics happens by accident leaves a nasty taste in the mouth.
