Hi there, coming at you from the South Park Blocks, where maybe 100 protesters are chatting and waiting to find out what the evening brings

Let's find out together

#PortlandProtests #PortlandRiots #BlackLivesMatter #PoliceBrutality #AbolishThePolice #AbolishICE
The atmosphere is more block party than recent actions have been. More signs and more chatting. @SoundBlocPDX playing good protest jams, people doing interviews with various press. Someone has a "register to vote" station
(This journalist recommends never registering to vote at a protest. Do it at home)

Hi there, coming at you from Elizabeth Caruthers Park, where about 200 people stand in the rain-soaked grass and prepare for the first action in nearly a week

Let's see what happens

#PortlandProtests #BlackLivesMatter #PoliceBrutality #PortlandRiots
Elizabeth Caruthers Park is very close to the ICE building

In the past couple days, we have learned that ICE is conducting systemic mass hysterectomies on its prisoners

At a certain point, words are no longer enough
An activist on the megaphone reminds us of the stakes

That Trump had made it clear that, if re-elected, he will prosecute anyone arrested at these events for sedition

We begin to march

I just got shot twice. Blood on the ground multiple injured
I'd rather have BORTAC back these Trump deputized Troopsers are lost and acting with extreme force out of fear. He shot me point blank in the nipple and arm. Good thing I dont have a nipple ring and no pictures.
#pdxprotests Kate's Brown shirts need to be put in their place for this! This is unacceptable! Ambulance on the scene. These protesters were completely peaceful. This is what peace gets you. #portlandprotests #ACAB

“Law enforcement agents killed Michael Forest Reinoehl while trying to arrest him” nytimes.com/2020/09/03/us/… NYT write-up tries to wrap this case up & tie it with a bow — but the facts are far from cut & dried #PortlandProtests 1/

Good evening Portlanders! I originally made this account more anonymous for the sake of keeping my personal opinions and feelings from affecting the objectivity of my reporting. After much thought, I have decided to use my name instead.
I assure everyone that this will not change the content or style of my reporting. I will continue to strive for excellence in reporting the stories & people in the city that I love. Truth in journalism is now more important than ever, in these changing times.
Placing my name will likely bring more hazards in my work, but I would like to be able to personally stand behind the facts I report. Stay tuned Portland. More news to come. #PortlandProtests #pdxprotest #BlackLivesMatter

There are some 600 cars participating in the conservative pro-Trump car caravan just outside Portland right now. They’re planning to drive through Clackamas to Portland. Antifa are discussing ways to oppose & stop them. They were unsuccessful in getting the rally cancelled.
This is taking place in a Portland suburb (Clackamas). The event is peaceful. They’re all going to drive into Portland. Antifa have used nails and other sharp objects to pop tires at their riots.
The travel route has been released. Looks like they’re all staying on the highway around Portland and are not going into downtown. #PortlandProtests

#SuperStrikeSeptember:

💥 Largest organized #GeneralStrike in modern US history

💥 Begins the same day as the nationwide #MarchForJustice for #BreonnaTaylor

💥 Every city will implement the #PortlandPrototype protest model
The infamous, #antifascist City of Portland, Oregon, is now on Day 91 of its remarkably sustained #resistance against the US #PoliceState.

In fact, the #PortlandProtests serve as an unlikely vanguard of modern day #BlackResistance and have provided for us something of a roadmap
forward for the #BlackLivesMatter movement. #AntiFascistAction to #DefendPDX has given us numerous ideas on how to proceed. As we all know, sustainability is key. #TheResistance in Portland has done exactly that. Not only has Portland demonstrated the tried and true methods of

Some real talk, plz read.

I haven't been blasting facts and screaming at the police for no reason.

We have to decry white supremacy, we have to use our voices. They have known white supremacy has been the real threat the whole time. PPB will 100% let people fucking kill us. /1
After I was ran over by a truck, the feds targeted me. Their security guards knew my name and explicitly said I was ran over because the driver feared for his life. I was standing in front of him at a red light- a whole other lane to go around me, asking streamers to capture- /2
Video of his truck because he hit protesters a couple weeks back.

Teens were murdered in the CHOP because of a police/gang set up. The CHOP was on a major known gang road. The police abandoned the East precinct in an attempt to let the neighborhood be overran with crime-/3

Democratic Congresswomen excited people are taking their grievances to the streets in Portland

[THREAD]

Vanity Fair did an article on activists championing Hope in America.

(1) It featured several Democratic Party Congresswomen who are excited about the people in the streets of Portland, Seattle, Kenosha, Denver, Minneapolis and other cities in with Democratic Party Governors and Democratic Party Mayors and city councils.
(2) Congresswoman Omar

"The ability to turn our cries in the streets into legislation in the halls of power is different, and the ability for people to still be hopeful while they push feels different. So, it is a very exciting moment and my hope is that we are never going to

Tonight, PPB declared an unlawful assembly at the MCSO, citing paintballs and other projectiles were being thrown at the building. The comparison in police response to earlier today has protester wondering if PPB has a bias that favors far-right groups.

#PortlandPolice #pdx
I think that PPB has some sort of B-team of officers called "Delta". They were all over the place tonight. One of them can be seen here, running away from his line.

Another clip of team "Delta", giving conflicting orders. Some of them confront press, while another say to let press through.

Hello, I have just arrived at Normandale Park, where a small contingent of protesters is relaxing in this glorious summer evening air

Let's see what tonight has in store

An activist acknowledges that everyone is tired. That it's already been a hard day. Encourages everyone to take care of each other and stay tight

Chant: "All Cops are Cowards!"
Currently chilling with @OccupiedSeattle who just gave me a gas mask. It's Christmas in August and they are some kind of angel/Santa hybrid

They also dispense excellent protest wisdom on Twitter, for what it's worth

It is exceedingly surreal to be walking through downtown Portland in body armor at 11 in the goddamn morning. I did not intend to ever wear body armor again but here we are

At the protest in SW Portland, meeting at Elizabeth Caruthers Park. The target is most likely the ICE building. It’s Wednesday Aug 19th. #blacklivesmatter #protest #pdx #Portland #Oregon #BLM #acab #PortlandProtests #PortlandStrong #ICE #DHS #pdxprotest ImageImageImage
When I first arrived, I drove by ICE and there were 30-50 DHS officers out front. I checked on the building again at 8:50 and the officers weren’t visible. #blacklivesmatter #protest #pdx #Portland #Oregon #BLM #acab #PortlandProtests #PortlandStrong #ICE #DHS #pdxprotest Image
