After all of the attention that the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone in Seattle has received nationwide, groups in other U.S. cities are contemplating creating their own self-governing areas. Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee (R) made it clear that autonomous zones would “not be tolerated” after rumors started swirling that people were creating their own autonomous zone in Nashville. In neighboring North Carolina, activists began to create their own autonomous zone in Asheville, but it didn’t last long.
On Friday night, a group attempted to create an autonomous zone in Asheville.
Autonomous zone going up in Asheville NC. People are needed now! Please share this if you can't be here. Supplies also needed. Lexington is the road, right under 240. Look for the flashing police lights. #Asheville #autonomouszone #ashevillenc #az #acab #chaz #ashevilleaz #wnc
