Police arrested more than 30 people in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood as they dismantled tents and roadblocks at 5 a.m. PDT on Wednesday. Mayor Jenny Durkan ordered the removal of demonstrators from the blocks known as the Capitol Hill Occupied Protest zone and nearby Cal Anderson Park for 48 hours. Protesters who called for dismantling the police department had camped in the area since June 8 following the death of George Floyd after an arrest attempt in Minneapolis.
