The ongoing dispute started in 1993, when, in protest against changes in grazing rules, Bundy declined to renew his permit for cattle grazing on BLM-administered public lands near Bunkerville, Nevada.[3] According to Bundy, the federal government lacks the constitutional authority to own vast tracts of lands, an argument repeatedly rejected by federal courts.

Seattle Autonomous Zone:

A self-declared autonomous zone, intentional community and commune covering approximately six city blocks. Local governance in the zone is decentralized, with the goal of creating a zone beyond policing. There are many posted demands, including rent control, de-gentrification, police abolition or defunding, funding community health, and dropping charges against protesters.
