We’re still missing a lot of details about the shooting at the self-proclaimed Capitol Hill Organized Protest zone in Seattle that happened early Monday morning, but Seattle city council member Kshama Sawant thinks she’s already cracked the case. While police haven’t released any details about the suspects that shot two people, killing an 16-year old and injuring a 14-year old, Sawant is issuing a public indictment… of capitalism.
While we await details of this tragic killing, it highlights capitalism’s brutality & endemic violence. Our movement rejects insinuations & falsehoods perpetuated by corporate & conservative media that this violence is outcome of CHOP or of our movement.https://t.co/AsbMeUiRgp
