Protester in Seattle’s police-free zone ‘demands white demonstrators hand over $10 to a black person in the CHAZ’ – The Sun

A PROTESTER in a police-free zone in Seattle has asked white demonstrators to fork over $10 to black people.

The unusual video was posted on Twitter early Saturday – and a staggering 1.2million people have watched it.


The protester in the city's Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, or CHAZ, asks each white person to give $10 to one African American person.

“If you have a hard time giving $10 you got to think are you really down with this struggle, are you really down with the movement,” said the protester.

“If that is a challenge for you, I’m not sure you are in the right place.”

He added: “The white people … I see you, I see every single one of you and I remember your faces."

Protests have been sweeping all across the country the last few weeks after George Floyd died in police custody in Minneapolis on Memorial Day.

Demonstrators in Seattle have made CHAZ their own, telling all that enter: "This space is now property of the Seattle people."

President Trump has said that he will act to remove "domestic terrorists" in Seattle if officials fail to regain control of the six-block area occupied by protesters.

"Radical Left Governor [of Washington, Jay Inslee] and the Mayor of Seattle are being taunted and played at a level that our great Country has never seen before," Trump tweeted this week.

"Take back your city NOW. If you don't do it, I will. This is not a game."

"These ugly Anarchists must be stooped (sic) IMMEDIATELY. MOVE FAST!

"Domestic Terrorists have taken over Seattle, run by Radical Left Democrats, of course. LAW & ORDER!"

A judge on Friday ordered Seattle police to temporarily stop using tear gas, pepper spray and flash-bang devices to break up largely peaceful protests.

District Judge Richard Jones sided with a Black Lives Matter group that sued the Seattle Police Department this week.

Mayor Jenny Durkan and Police Chief Carmen Best have apologized to peaceful protesters who were subjected to chemical weapons.
