Left-wing militants, (Antifa), have reportedly turned a memorial site for George Floyd in Minneapolis into a “volatile” autonomous zone — where police, city officials, and even other protesters are not welcome.
The militant-style group has taken over a long stretch of the road creating a hostile situation for authorities, News Nation Now reported.
The News Nation Now reporter and cameraman were threatened by Antifa members and told to leave the street even though they were not inside the barricaded area.
On June 12th 2020, a group of Asheville Antifa members tried to make Lexington Ave an autonomous zone by barricading the street with pallets and furniture. The Asheville Police Department quickly put a stop to it and dismantled the barricades.
