This from Dan Forrest, Republican nominee for Governor of North Carolina in the 2020 election.
it appears there are now at least FOUR autonomous zones in the process of being established across the US
– Seattle's CHAZ is still going strong
– the U of Chicago's Police HQ has been occupied
– Asheville, NC is working on one
– Nashville, TN has occupied the capitol grounds

A tale of two cities:
Asheville Protesters Attempt an Autonomous Zone, Police Immediately Dismantle It
From RedState: “The attempts in Nashville and Chicago by protesters to set up ‘autonomous zones’ similar to the one that was set up in Seattle in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd 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. …
Asheville is known as the ‘Seattle’ of North Carolina, with Raleigh not being far behind. But unlike Seattle, Asheville police officers do not mess around in these matters, as evidenced by what took place last night.”
Good for the Asheville Police Department for establishing order by breaking up a so-called “autonomous zone.” We are a nation of laws.
