A group of protesters marched to the home of Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan on Sunday afternoon, upset that she pledged to dismantle the police-free “Capitol Hill Organized Protest,” known as CHOP.

Seattle City Councilwoman Kshama Sawant joined a group of dozens of demonstrators gathered at Durkan’s home, holding signs, chanting, and demanding she leave the area alone or meet protesters’ demands.

Durkan said last week police would soon return to Seattle’s East Precinct, which has been overrun by protesters who set up the CHOP zone, but gave no timetable.

Demonstrators have controlled the six-block area since June 8, saying they will not leave until the city meets a list of demands.
