Protesters break in to City Hall in Washington State, causing mayor to flee

Protesters who claimed to be advocating for the homeless broke in and entered the City Hall in Bellingham, Washington on Friday while protesting a plan by the city to move a homeless encampment further away from the government building.

The protesters blocked the street with their cars and removed the flag from city hall grounds, dragging it over the ground.

Officials had to escort Bellingham Mayor Seth Fleetwood out of the building for his safety after about 20 protesters broke into it. City Hall has been closed due to the pandemic.

Police secured building

When police arrived, they asked the protesters to leave the building, which they did. Police then secured the building and reported no damage or arrests. Other reports noted graffiti had been painted onto the outside of the building during the protest.

No action was taken against the protesters, and Fleetwood said the city would not take any aggressive action against them.

The protest came about because the homeless encampment, known as Camp 210, was notified earlier in the week that it had to move at least 25 feet from the city hall building by Friday, the Bellingham Herald reported.

Tents and other structures had been raised on the lawn of city hall and the library in November, and 90 to 120 homeless individuals had been staying there each night. It had also become a gathering place of sorts for other homeless people to get food and supplies.

Safety concerns

Safety concerns prompted the need for the camp to move after multiple fires and a propane tank explosion, Breitbart reported.

The mayor and city council had been negotiating with the homeless advocates to find housing or provide a number of tiny homes for them to stay in, but the negotiations had broken down prior to the protest.

The protesters may have been outside agitators, according to the Herald.

Incidentally, the words “domestic terrorists” were not used to refer to the protesters, and the invasion of city hall was not described as an “insurrection” against the government.

  1. The big smoke screen “executive orders” all designed to take the public minds off of the” Biden’s corruption” and of course “election fraud”. The real issues FBI political corruption tolerated by the Biden’s just like they tolerated by the Clinton’s. Have a question according to Hunter Biden and his now famous computer he generated enough money to fund the Biden family for 30 years and split half with the big guy! Where did all this money arrive from….. and why are all his former partners in jail?. The real question is was all this money gone and has it been reported by all involved? and who has audited this great arrival? or even investigated this found fortune? Why has this non-reporting income savant not been examined by the IRS & Inter pool and the FBI AND DOJ? is here really the smartest man the big guy knows I mean Joe Biden sorry. If the FBI has had this computed for year the greatest investigatory agency on the planet what’s happened to the money trail? Where are results and where is the money?

    1. When you are a major Democrat, you are exempt from punishment for any and all crimes that you have in your history.

    2. Exactly! This AM I keep seeing all the dark money that came into B s election! And no one knows who or where it came from??????? C’mon man! Gotta be a trail some where? Since when can other countries BUY OUR elections?????? OR who is the DARK money coming from! Another coverup by the rats and the evil powers in OUR GOVT.

  2. if it takes force to stop this then the state government better step up and do it before the residents start doing it

  4. Even the libs are getting what they have earned. A lawyer and a Democrat aide. Need more be said? On par with Ted Wheeler (weak) , mayor of Portland OR. Reelected as the other choice is an avowed Antifa idiot.

  5. As a retired Vietnam veteran, I am fed up with these creeps disrespecting and stomping on the United States flag. If it were up to me, I would force them to join the military or leave the country. I don’t care what your political affiliation is, NO ONE should be able to stomp, burn, spit, wear, drag or otherwise disrespect a symbol that so many citizens have given up their lives for. Don’t like this country, get the hell out and find another as tolerant!

    1. AGREE Bring back the 18 yrs old draft, serve 2 yrs at least! Get some of these dead beats off the street and some good ole SGTS giving them H to straighten UP! Some may even get some schooling!

    2. Chief you are so right. As a Navy vet I couldn’t agree more with everything you said. If these sorry low lifes want to rough up people, then swear them in and send them to countries where people will return the favor.

  6. It’s getting to be time for local law enforcement to deputize all capable citizens into a town, city, or county militia for necessary counter attack support. Consider what George Mason answered, “The militia is everyone, save for a few lowly politicians.”

  7. When people use violence, those who support it, do it, and ignore it are not strong. Just ignorant. Standing up to it, like the real tough people, takes courage. Look at Jesus. He was persecuted, beaten and crucified and still beat them. That is where my Faith is in. This body is temporary. Rather die trying to help people, than be evil like the foolish people that do that bad stuff. Their punishment will come. That isn’t a insurrection. That is a resurrection of Jesus. We are going to Heaven, and those that do that stuff will burn in Hell!

  8. I am a non-denominational CHRISTian that goes to Calvary Chapel and listens to the international CHRISTian Satellite Network CSNRADIO .com SEVEN days a week especially Monday – Friday. I even listened to it in Germany 🇩🇪 and Hungary 🇭🇺 !

    I LIVED IN, not just visited communist China 🇨🇳 in 2010 . So I KNOW how bad it is to live under communism and I am doing EVERYthing I can here to stop it from coming here. Venezuela WAS a wealthy, prosperous country until it became communist as a 3rd world country with people eating out of garbage cans !!! In China, I attended a university that not only can one get a master’s degree in Marxism, but it had a statue of Chairman Mao in its front yard.
    ( I was fortunate to stumble upon ONE toilet at the university. Every other restroom had stinky porcelain holes in the ground we had to squat over. Upon entering the front entrance to the university and near the plush 28 story building I lived in, the stench was so bad, you had to hold your nose. Electrical wiring hung from the ceiling of the two buildings too. )

    To quote Eskify, “ Through communist policies he starved millions of people, possibly as many as 80 million. He killed any intellectuals who disagreed with him, he put people in labour camps, and condoned beating and stoning people to death in struggle sessions.“

    I saw the plans of the left on their own letterhead paper to murder us, especially the seniors and disabled, and the vaccines 💉 is just one of the ways. ( To build your immunity, eat foods made from GOD like fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, and walnuts. Take a healthy vitamin-mineral drink, Zinc, Elderberry, Vitamin D-3, and Vitamin A daily. Get 8 hours of sleep daily and exercise. I don’t wear a mask because it’s unhealthy unless I am forced to in which case I wear an accepted face shield so that I can breathe AND I am trying to make a political and health statement by NOT wearing one. We are NOT cows waiting for the slaughter. We are humans who can reason. ) Read the first sentence of the Georgia Guidestones also known as Georgia Stonehenge supported by the left elitists .
