Seattle authorities have removed a garden planted in 2020 in honor of the Black Lives Matter movement inside the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ), previously known as the Capitol Hill Occupied Protest (CHOP).

The garden, initially seen as a form of “reparations” for racism, was taken down due to attracting crime and becoming a public nuisance.

The city cited unsafe conditions, including vandalism, drug use, and camping, as reasons for the removal. (Trending: Could Taylor Swift Save Biden In 2024?)

Black Star Farmers wrote that their members are, “mourning the destruction of the physical embodiment of years of collaboration, connecting with plant life.”

Seattle Parks spokesperson Rachel Schulkin said, “In recent months, the temporary garden has created unsafe conditions for all park users, including the vandalism of Cal Anderson public bathrooms, public drug use, unauthorized camping and a significant rodent problem, along with other issues.”

This action comes after the CHAZ/CHOP formed in response to police abandonment of the Eastern Precinct, leading to anarchy until its removal prompted by murders in the zone and pressure from President Donald Trump.
