Seattle police arrest 24 as crews clear homeless camp at Cal Anderson Park

The activists would not answer questions about the legal consequences of trespassing on a property they do not own.

“Ok, next question,” Ali said when asked about it during a press conference.

Property records show that a Bellevue-based private lending company bought the house for $1.2 million. 

KING 5 was unable to reach the company for comment, Thursday.

Some who live on the block support their new neighbors and said they had been respectful.

“The homeless population needs assistance, they need compassion, they need help, they need services,” said a man who lives next door to the occupied house, nicknamed the “yellow house.”

A woman who said she lives nearby interrupted the activists’ press conference to share her thoughts about the park and the people camping there.

“I am not going to go take over somebody’s property that is not mine because it’s owed to me,” she said, “Yes, we need to help the homeless, we need to help the mentally ill, but this is not the way to go.”

“Get the hell out of our park and let us live in it and let us bring our children without setting fires and destroying our neighborhood,” the woman shouted.
