Seattle seems to be recognizing the right to a permanent protest zone

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Now Seattle seems to have ceded the governance of CHOP to protest groups, including Black Lives Matter, Urban League, Choose 180, Not This Time, Africatown, and others in an effort to make the area a better place to occupy. Trump vowed to do something about it -- he said the federal government had a number of options. But the federal government has no clear role, and the issue in Seattle is that the local and state governments don't want federal help. They appear to be OK with a significant part of the city being occupied. It's a problem that will have to be solved, if it is solved, in Seattle.
