Progs have seceded from the union, claiming 6 blocks of Seattle as their own. The have named it the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (or “CHAZ” for short).
All fledgling nations have their struggles and the CHAZ is no different. An unforeseen complication has already arisen.

“We’ve seen all of this before, sadly. If you were around when the Occupy protests were a thing, they also believed they had created a new utopia of equality for everyone to emulate. And then it became clear that people were being assaulted, threatened and even raped inside the camps.” – John Sexton
