I’m here for the protest by the east precinct in Portland on Thursday, Aug 6th. I got here a bit early to scope things out. #blacklivesmatter #protest #pdx #Portland #Oregon #BLM #acab #PortlandProtests #PDXprotests #PortlandStrong #portlandpolice
Some “Blue Lives Matter” messages are posted on the side of the building. #blacklivesmatter         #protest #pdx #Portland #Oregon #BLM #acab #PortlandProtests #PDXprotests #PortlandStrong #portlandpolice
Right after I arrived, a team of officers went to remove two dumpsters in the area. #blacklivesmatter #protest #pdx #Portland #Oregon #BLM #acab #PortlandProtests #PDXprotests #PortlandStrong #portlandpolice

Hello, it's that time again: live-tweeting from Floyd Light City Park! Or, well, nearby. Let's see what tonight's protest brings

#DefendPDX #portlandprotests #pdxprotest #blacklivesmatter #police #acab #trumpsgestapo #momsarehere #portlandprotest
We have arrived at the East Portland Community Policing Center. Good crowd, maybe 250 people? A wall of yellow-shirted moms at the front leads the crowd in a chant of "Fuck the Police!" Enterprising protesters are at work disabling cameras

I think I'm gonna get my riot gear on
LRAD rolls up. Announces there's criminal activity in the crowd, and encourages peaceful protesters to leave now

The criminal activity: one graffiti and some camera sabotage

Here is the playlist of clips from Monday night, documenting my experiences as a blind person at the Portland Protests.

1. A Squeaky Beginning
Early in the night, you can hear all the squeaky pigs surrounding me. Including my beautiful little piggy, with the X'd out eyes. (to match my gas mask, of course)
2. How do you spell nazi?
Who knew there were bilabial stops voiced or otherwise in "Nazi"?

I’m at Laurelhurst park in Portland, where there is a march planned for this evening. #blacklivesmatter  #protest #pdx #Portland #Oregon #BLM #acab #PortlandProtests #PDXprotests #PortlandStrong
A Black person in black bloc saying that “You’re no different from the Police if you police other people’s protest. I’ve been whitewashed cause I wear black [clothes].”
It appears people are preparing to march soon, the specific destination has not been determined yet.

I remember when 10:30 was bedtime. Now it's time to walk down to the Justice Center so I can live-tweet whatever fresh hell tonight has in store

Not a bad crowd for a Wednesday. Diffuse, mostly gathered in front of the District Courthouse, where two enormlus floodlights illuminate the street and already threaten me with a headache
Bizarro Riot Ribs is feeding people, offering haircuts, supplying medical necessities. I wish I could feel wholesome about it like I used to

"Guillotine" by the Coup is playing--probably my favorite protest jam

Thread.
Police unions protect cops. They defend cops, keep them in their jobs, and are the reason violent, abusive cops are on the street.

Who are these people in each of our communities?

How Police Unions Enable and Conceal Abuses of Power

Some of the most controversial cop unions are unaffiliated with national groups, while large and progressive unions include an influential police presence.

Restarting tonight's thread! Due to technical difficulties I'll be posting live updates on the Justice Center protest here, on my own account

#PortlandMoms #blacklivesmatter  #protest #pdx #portland #oregon #blm #acab #PortlandProtest #PDXprotest #Feds #MOMTIFA #MomsAreHere
That massive march I mentioned earlier? Coming back to the JC after all. The crowd appears to be at least as big as it was last night, and I hear rumors the North group might be coming here too. Gonna be a wild Saturday!
The elk statue is now a gravel pile. If the monument continues to dissolve at this rate it will soon be a hole in the ground

I love the underlying abolitionist message of #ACAB, but "bastard" as an insult is part of a long racist, sexist, anti-poor history of stigmatizing people with unmarried parents.
In the US, this stigma against unmarried parenting has been explicitly anti-Black, with illegitimacy laws used after Jim Crow to exclude Black children and families from programs and services.
Clinton's 1996 "welfare reform," which worsened poverty for poor women, people of color, and immigrants, centrally mobilized the idea that there is something wrong with unmarried parenting and that unmarried parenting caused poverty.

The steps of the courthouse still reek of teargas. I started coughing almost immediately. #PortlandMoms #blacklivesmatter  #protest #pdx #portland #oregon #blm #acab #PortlandProtest #PDXprotest #Feds #MOMTIFA #MomsAreHere

Hello, @1misanthrophile here coming at you from the Justice Center, where all the people who aren't taking it to the cops up north are taking it to the sexiest fence I have ever seen

#portlandprotest #pdxprotest #blacklivesmatter #police #acab #PortlandKidnappings #Portland
All fences must die

So much work this morning and all for nothing. Look upon the fed's works, ye mighty, and despair

-@1misanthrophile
A line forms before the district courthouse as more and more fence falls to the talented hands of the enterprising protesters

Chant: "leave our kids alone!"

Hi, it's @1misanthrophile live from the Justice Center! Switching from live-tweeting on my own account to tweeting over here. As the sun sets and the fences go down, the mood begins to change. What does tonight have in store?

#PortlandProtests
#PDXprotest
The Hardesty event has wrapped up and the crowd shifts. Some of the less regular participants--the families in jeans and t-shirts--mill about. Some of them leave

An activist begs them to stay. "When you leave, you put me at risk!"

They're not wrong

-@1misanthrophile
As hip hop plays I've the speakers by the JC, the activist leads people in chanting the names by the ex-Elk

Meanwhile, a tiny fire in Chapman keeps us warm while the sun sets
