In Seattle, protesters have occupied the area in front of a downtown police station -- and they're showing no signs of moving, even as evening approaches.
The police station has been "overtaken by these protesters," said CNN Correspondent Dan Simon from the scene. "It's totally been defaced."
The sign at the front of the building, which used to read "Seattle Police Department," now reads "Seattle People Department."
"For several days in the wake of George Floyd's death, you had violent clashes between protesters and police officers here in front of this department, and tear gas was deployed. It was not a pretty scene," said Simon.
After days of clashes, the police decided to try and de-escalate the situation and "essentially abandoned the department," he said. That's when protesters flooded in.
The situation remains peaceful and lighthearted at the moment. "It really has the feel of a street festival," Simon said -- there are people serving food to the crowds, there's a medical tent set up, and the demonstrators even watch movies and play live music at night.
"It's sort of a contradictory situation. On the one hand, it began with force, but right now it's peaceful," Simon said.
