Q&A: What’s next for Seattle protesters’ ‘autonomous zone’?

SEATTLE (AP) — For nearly a week, people opposing police brutality and racial injustice have turned a Seattle neighborhood into ground zero for their protests. They’ve created a carnival-like atmosphere with speakers and drum circles near a largely abandoned police station. It’s angered President Donald Trump, who has repeatedly threatened to “go in” to stop the “anarchists” he says have taken over the liberal city after officers withdrew to ease tensions. Washington’s governor and Seattle’s mayor have rebuked Trump and say local officials are trying to find a peaceful resolution following demonstrations that turned violent last weekend.
