A no-go zone or no-go area is any region of any country, over which the authorities of said country have ceded control to an invading power or a resident rebel or protest movement, thereby relinquishing sovereignty over said region. The authorities need not be acting under force majeure but may in fact grant a de facto territorial cession merely to keep civic peace. No-go zones are common in European countries where districts are set up by islamic radicals.

Antifa terrorists declared the Capital Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ), established border walls and checkpoints, discriminated against illegal aliens, and engaged in police brutality against innocent protesters. Antifa paramilitants seized land from the native inhabitants and colonized a 7 block radius in east Seattle, imposing Stop and Frisk harassment and restrictions on residents. Not since the Paris Commune has a libertarian anarchist state been declared in The West. Others compared it to an ISIS-style insurrectionary state.
After a prolonged siege the Seattle Police Department abandoned its east precinct building. In a private message to the department, Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best passed the buck upstairs:
“You fought for days to protect it. I asked you to stand on that line day in and day out, to be pelted with projectiles, to be screamed at, threatened, and in some cases hurt. Then to have a change of course nearly two weeks in — it seems like an insult on our community.”
Several hundred demonstrators, led by Seattle City Council Socialist Alternative Kshama Sawant, occupied City Hall calling for the resignation of Democrat mayor Jenny Durkan and the defunding of the Seattle Police Department after a march from the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone. Sawant was backed by Democratic Socialists of America (DSA). The DSA provided logistical support for the riots. Sawant called for the importance of Black LGBTQIA+ women and other issues. At City Hall another speaker decried Sawant’s cooptation of the movement to push her own agenda.
“Please stop using Black Lives Matter for your political campaigns....I’m really sorry, I want to tax Amazon too, I want to do all these things too, but this is not a movement for you to be politically active, for you to be politically correct, and for you to gain all these votes. Please stop taking advantage of us.”
The speaker noted the whiteness of many speakers at recent protests. Protesters left City Hall chanting “Defund SPD” and headed back to the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, where protesters watched 13th, a documentary on the The New Jim Crow.
A two-hour rally of an estimated 2,000 protesters gathered in the rain for a community meeting hosted by Sawant.
“What we’ve defeated here is the political establishment of this city....You can never have zero police and an elimination of racism and oppression on the basis of capitalism."
A 30-point list of demands was published. “We demand the de-gentrification of Seattle, starting with rent control," etc.
Community members were subjected to barricades set up by the protesters with some armed individuals running them as checkpoints in the neighborhood,” a police spokesman said. “While they have a constitutionally protected right to bear arms there is no legal right for those arms to be used to intimidate community members.” Residents described a small number of people armed with rifles who have been seen serving as guards. Many businesses and residential buildings in the so called C.H.A.Z. hired private security staff. The entire area was lawless, and residents were left to fend for themselves. A social media posting from inside the occupied territory read,
"Due to the police not being able to respond for fear of reprisal and the shear amount of police resources required that makes it possible to have any presents in our area, residents needed to have an emergency plan that does not involve 911. Whether it is contacting friends, family or driving someone or yourself to the emergency room. You can still call 911 for help with planning and dealing with emergencies, but they may ask that you attempt to make your way to one of their other locations or possibly deal with a significant delayed response.
Civil disorder and vigilantly justice erupted over a property rights dispute when a socialist procured an iphone from greedy citizen unwilling to share the wealth. 911 calls reporting violence and sex crimes increased 300% in four days in the area which the Democrat mayor seceded to terrorists. The mayor provided material support to the terrorists and ordered the police to stand down.
The Occupied Seattle Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone offered no social and mental health care for victims of the occupation.
