The police station in CHAZ Seattle should be a community center: pol

A board member from Seattle wants to turn the police station in the center of the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone which consists of six blocks into a community center, he tweeted.

“Our movement needs to immediately ensure the Eastern Precinct is not returned to the police but is permanently converted into community control,” said board member Kshama Sawant tweeted on Friday.

“My office brought legislation to turn the East Precinct into a community center for restorative justice.”

Police left offices on 12th Avenue and East Pine Street, part of a trendy and trendy neighborhood, last week, surrendering the zone to protesters who demonstrated the death of police on May 25 at George Floyd in Minneapolis.

Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best said later that the move was not her calling, and said city officials “succumbed to severe public pressure.”

But Indian-born Sawant, Seattle’s first elected socialist, said it was a peaceful area.

“This is an extraordinary area of ​​peace and friendship and dignity and to bring movement forward,” he said to CNN on Saturday. “It’s full of hundreds of ordinary people, young people, children, families, and this is clearly a movement led by black and brown community members but welcomes people from all cities and regions who want to join the struggle. “

However, some reports suggest disturbing details about the zone, also known as CHAZ.

A video posted on Twitter over the weekend showed a demonstrator asking white protesters in the zone to give $ 10 to black protesters, while previous reports showed that rapper Raz Simone had established himself as a “warlord” in the zone.

According to the police, there were reports that local business owners were also blackmailed within the zone.

“We have heard anecdotal reports about residents and businesses being asked to pay fees to operate in this area,” Assistant Police Chief Deanne Nollette said last week. “This is a crime of extortion.”

Sawant himself has become a controversial figure in the city. Despite his ties to socialism, a board member reported in 2018 a financial disclosure that he lived in a home worth $ 800,000 – $ 900,000 and had half a million dollars in equity at home, Radio KIRO was reported in 2018.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
