The attempts in Nashville and Chicago by protesters to set up “autonomous zones” similar to the one that was set up in Seattle have not gone so well. The situation Friday night in Asheville, North Carolina was no different. Except in this case we have videos of the police department actually dismantling the encampment not long after occupiers in the area attempted to set it up.
Watch the Asheville Police Department tear down a first attempt at creating an autonomous zone below.

Asheville, NC Is in the process of creating an autonomous zone. I am here as a medic and we have a medical team set up right outside the boundaries. Stay safe. pic.twitter.com/uJZPLzs2SR— Text “GUILLOTINE” to 696969 (@R3eeeeeeee) June 13, 2020
