Occupy Seattle Protestor Marries Abandoned Warehouse


An Occupy Seattle protestor married an abandoned warehouse on Saturday, but it’s not really what you might be thinking.

Baylonia Aivaz didn’t “marry” the vacant building due to some strange fetish, sexual hang-up or far-fetched daddy issues somehow involving derelict architecture. She did it in order to protest gentrification.

“I’m doing this to show the building how much I love it, how much I love community space, and how much I love this neighborhood. And I want to stop it from gentrification,” she said.

The building was recently occupied by protestors, and is scheduled to be torn down to make room for apartment buildings.

“If corporations can have the [same] rights as people, so can buildings,” said Aivaz, who did indeed don a white dress for her big day. She described the event as a “gay marriage”, though we’re not sure if this is just a two-for-one liberal protest or the building has kind of a fem-vibe.
