For The CHOP; Seattle “Autonomous Zone” Burns $1 $2 $20 $50 Notes “Slaveholders Money “
Rumors are circulating that the
residents of the Seattle Autonomous Zone (CHOP) are refusing to accept
any US paper money with images of slaveholders.
Also, they are only allowing people to
enter into the officially accepted barricaded zone if they put any notes
depicting Washington ($1) Jefferson ($2) and Jackson ($20) into the burning
rubbish bins stationed at both entrances to the special zone.
No transactions are allowed at
any of the businesses within the zone using the prohibited notes and only $5
(Lincoln) $10 (Hamilton) and $100 (Franklin) notes can be presented. Grant was a slaveholder so the $50 note will be burnt/confiscated
Since statues of Lincoln are
being defaced, and the Mayor of Boston has come out in favor of removing
Lincoln’s statute there, a CHOP “Committee of Safety” is said to be currently
reviewing whether the $5 note is also to be proscribed.
“It’s bad enough that the $10 and $100 dollar
bills depict only white men but for the moment, until a socially just barter
system can be fully implemented or the incoming Biden administration has the
entire paper currency reworked to have
all notes depict women of color we have to allow at least two hateful
denominations to circulate.”
Also prohibited are the
majority of the $1 coins in circulation as 18 depict presidents who were slaveholders with 36 of the total of 39 coins
depicting presidents who were outright racists like Wilson or who presided over
a country which allowed segregation.
Of current lower value coins only
the 1 cent Lincoln coin is allowed to be used in the Autonomous Zone.
realize it may be inconvenient to use say 400 cents for a purchase and to carry
a back pack of a couple of thousand but we all have to make sacrifices to stand
up for, or bend under the weight of in that case, justice a spokesperson was
alleged to have stated.
