Hi there, arriving late to Ventura Park and trying to adjust my eyes to the total darkness. The park lights are all out

A coincidence I'm sure

#BlackLivesMatter #PortlandProtesters #PDXprotests #PoliceViolence #PoliceBrutality #AbolishThePolice #DefendPDX
I can't tell exactly how big the crowd is because almost no light but it looks massive. High hundreds

A performer whose name I should really, really know by now is performing an a capella rap he wrote especially for this occasion

Hi there, it's Friday and I'm at Kenton Park along with probably 200 protesters. Music faintly plays. The crowd relaxes, for now

Hi there, I'm at Woodstock Park with a small but growing group of protesters. Let's see what tonight has in store

#PortlandProtest #PortlandRiots #PDXprotests #BlackLivesMatter #PoliceViolence #ACAB
Maybe 100 people here now, more coming all the time. I have a brief conversation with @hungrybowtie about soup. As you do

Strains of "Guillotine" by the Coup on the breeze
I keep reaching for my press pass: talisman against harm. With the State Police deputized as federal agents, it's a talisman whose time has come and gone

I've got IV plates and a good helmet: far more useful things tonight

Hi there, coming at you from Elizabeth Caruthers park in SW Portland, where a socially-distanced crowd has gathered in preparation for tonight's protest. Let's see what happens!

#PortlandProtest #pdxprotest #PoliceViolence #PoliceBrutality #ACAB #BlackLivesMatter #Police
As I walk up, a protester named Firefly makes an argument for direct action

They cite past success of direct action, from the riots after MLK's death to the American revolution

They state that peaceful protests are obedience to the very system they're trying to diamantle
Looks like the original question was why there aren't more black people at these protests

A protester of color says that black voices get lost at these events. That people with other agendas sometimes take over

He says that fear is another reason. Getting arrested, losing jobs

Less than 2 weeks ago, the top cop—and top #Chad—in Riverside County, @SheriffBianco, was telling the Board of Supervisors that "it's not your job to tell me what to do" when it comes to ensuring that the @RSO is held accountable to the public for violence committed by deputies.
In May, Bianco passed himself off simultaneously as an expert on #pandemics and a constitutional scholar when instructing the Board of Supervisors to ignore guidelines from the Riverside County #publichealth officer and California Governor @GavinNewsom.
#LawEnforcement isn't Chad Bianco's only job: he doubles as the county coroner, which it turns out is problematic. Two Fridays ago, he again told the Board of Supervisors that he rejected oversight efforts— even though he knew how a man had been killed in @RSO custody in 2017.

[One year later, #Policebrutality intensifies]

1. A year ago,millions of #HKers flocked to streets to oppose #AntiExtradition bill & #PoliceViolence. It was the time when demonstrations, protests, strikes, petitions, forming human chains & singing #GlorytoHongKong were permitted Image
2. One year later, #Hongkongers and the world bear witness to #Beijing's growing direct control on the city’s vanishing liberty. Ordinary citizens are stabbed by pro-#Beijing mobs, smashed to the ground and arrested by #hkpolice just because they sing in public. ImageImageImage
3. This is the time when teachers are fired for refusing to censor students, and even a satirical show was halted for mentioning #policebrutality. Image

I finally reset my password so I can log in, and I AM FIRED UP, y’all. GET READY.
CW: Abuse, #PoliceViolence

THE NICEST FREAKIN’ FAMILY just moved in across the street 3 weeks ago. Single mom, four kids, 7 mths pregnant as a surrogate for her best friend, I’ll be calling her Mama cause she’s the cutest preggo lady I have ever seen, 5’1” and like 110 lbs.
Our neighborhood is...kinda rough. Poor people, lots of drugs, but more or less everyone leaves everyone else alone and gets along fine. This family moves in, I immediately go over to say hey, and turns out Mama and I get along GREAT. NICE people. Fab kids.

As #BlackLivesMatter protests sweep across the UK we are told that #racism & #PoliceViolence is not as bad here. Well it was only luck that meant the #MetPolice didn't murder 62-y/o #MillardScott in April:
#NoJusticeNoPeace /1
Also in April a #WestMidlandsPolice officer was filmed beating a young black boy to the ground and kicking him - another incident that could have resulted in a death. The #police & the state are institutionally #racist in the UK too. bbc.co.uk/news/uk-englan… /2
And the stench of #racism spreads to the right-wing of @UKLabour too where @Keir_Starmer is blocking action against racist staff, MPs & others like @EmilieOldknow & @IainMcNicol exposed in the #LabourReport. And he has the gall to #TakeAKnee. Sickening. /3

The case for Black Lives Matter should be applied globally and the push to defund police should be extended to the US military.

1- In the aftermath of what is currently going on in #France (protests against police violence v. people blaming French PoC of "racializing" the issue like in the UK or US). A quick non-exhaustive thread on #France and the notion of #universalism and France's double standards.⬇️
2- Usual warning: it is a (already too long) Twitter thread. I’m going straight to the point, there is so much more to say, and there are a bunch of things I did not cover.
3- Art 1 of the Constitution of 1958: “France shall be an indivisible, laïque, democratic & social Republic. It shall ensure the equality of all citizens before the law, without distinction of origin, race or religion”.
