1/🧵Russia's invasion of Ukraine has prompted a massive humanitarian crisis. For many the feeling of helplessness is overwhelming 💔.

Here are some great ways to help (some not even requiring any money).

Please retweet & share 🇺🇦🌻💙💛#Ukraine #StandWithUkraine #HelpUkraine Image
2/🧵Ways to help include donating to Ukraine via a registered charitable organization, donating money /goods / points / miles, fundraising, volunteering, attending rallies, contacting MPs, fighting disinformation online, etc. 🇺🇦💪#Ukraine #HelpUkraine
3/🧵Money is still the most effective gift.

Most charities prefer donations of cash due to issues with donated goods (logistical hurdles, custom regulations, transport costs, lacking capacity of nonprofit teams to sort the goods, carbon footprint, etc.). 💲🇺🇦#GiveMoney #Ukraine Image

We are #LIVE in #Minneapolis covering a rally in solidarity with #Portland where six people were shot and one killed on Saturday night during a protest in support of Amir Locke twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1…
The person who was killed on Saturday in Portland was known as T. Rex. Comrades of hers say she took part in a lot of mutual aid work, and made people laugh and smile.
"If people want the protests to stop, then we need some fucking justice, that's gonna be the thing to make the protests stop. Driving into protests with cars isn't gonna make us stop, coming and showing up with guns to try and scare us isn't gonna make us stop, we will grow.."

After 2 years of being openly accused & attacked for a fabricated lie I have proof that people in the Portland Protest movement on twitter do manipulate media to suit their means. In this post they claim I only used a white fist by blocking out the rest of the ethnic colors, ImageImage
to try & spin the tired, false narrative that I'm a "insensitive white boy who is clueless at BLM" 🙄
Ive caught @pissbloc openly lying & fabricating a tweet of mine to fit thier false narrative about me & using it as valid evidence.
Thats the exact thing I've been saying many people in the Portland movement do the last 2 years. LIE! But the portland twitter echo chamber said I was making it up, I'm a lair & I am endangering the movement. Messed up part is pissbloc thought this post was a joke...

Differences between #Portland #Oregon & #Budapest #Hungary

Budapest:
No tent camping and *far* fewer homeless

*Much* safer

*Much* cleaner and no mounds of trash everywhere

Virtually no guns

No riots

Statues exist

Currently open for business
It’s difficult to explain to people just how bad the city of portland has become. This is made worse by gaslighting and partisanship.
Interesting how “lived experience” and “testimony” is only viewed as legitimate if it comports with the predilections of the reader.

Right-wing thugs with the Proud Boys have gathered in Portland. They got chased out of downtown and are now rallying in the parking lot of a shuttered Kmart. Their hate is not welcome here. It's a small crowd of violent people. #DoJustice
The Proud Boys had planned their hate rally to start at 2pm. So far all we’ve heard is a request from an organizer asking for help finding his iPhone. Wonder what is on it...
The Proud Boys have seemingly taken over this park lot. No @PortlandPolice here. Plenty of these guys. ⬇️

Against a backdrop of far-Right murders + ongoing violence, the Proud Boys have continued to call for the direct targeting of activists, journalists + non-Trump supporters in the #Portland area - even to the determent of the their own movement. A thread. CW - Violent images.
Violent rhetoric from the Proud Boys is nothing new. Here is #Sacramento based Proud Boy Jeff Perrine calling for immigrants heads to be "smash[ed]...into the concrete," while at a rally in #Portland.
This same rally brought out Unite the Right attendees and neo-Nazis who through up Hitler salutes, along with Proud Boys, militia members, and supporters of Joey Gibson. itsgoingdown.org/in-portland-pa…

After 5 years of murders + violent assaults, the Center is calling for people to stay home + give up the streets of #Portland this Sunday - to except a 'new-normal' of unending fascist violence after years of police open collaboration. A thread on why mass opposition is crucial.
This Sunday, far-Right groups are planning to once again rally in #Portland in August. Posters online have described their desire to engage in violence and "cleanse" Portland.
A year after Charlottesville, white nationalists, Proud Boys, and militia groups - led by Joey Gibson - rallied in #Portland. Later it was discovered that a far-Right group was found by police posted on top of a roof top with long-guns, but let go. wweek.com/news/city/2018…

Christian Anti-Abortion event tonight in Salem Oregon.

A group of #Antifa showed up in black bloc to disrupt the event. So far they've been largely unsuccessful, currently there is a large number of guys are facing off with them protecting the event
Small scuffle then #Antifa throws a block of ice at the Christian event. Still pretty calm and just facing off

Some of the guys protecting event are the same people who protected the Christians at the event on Sunday in #Portland
Some familiar faces from #Portland #Antifa are there.

Proud Boy leader Tiny Toese directed far-Right brawlers in the streets of #Portland last night. Toese has a history of advocating working with racists, attacking counter-protesters + the public + getting a free pass from local police to engage in violence. A thread. CW: slurs.
Toese has a long history of working directly with the Proud Boys, Patriot Prayer and American Guard. In this video, he argues that the far-Right needs to unify with neo-Nazis and white nationalists.
A #Portland neo-Nazi leader stated in the PSU Vanguard that Toese called him personally to to thank him for standing with Patriot Prayer and the Proud Boys to attack antifascists. psuvanguard.com/former-identit…

Analyzing June new home sales & pricing figures from our monthly builder survey. As one builder noted: “It’s not fun to be a builder anymore.” Lumber relief is nice but pick your poison on other issues. Market commentary from across the country to follow...
#Richmond builder: “It's not fun to be a builder anymore. Cost pressure is killing us. Not only will builders like myself who take 12-24 months to build a house lose margin from increases, but the affordability is becoming a major issue.”
#Atlanta builder: “Costs have driven up prices & we’re no longer preselling. We will not sell a home until frame stage, so our sales numbers are off for June while awaiting framing stage.”

GOTTA TAKE A STAND: I hope my fellow journalists know what’s happening out here in the Pacific Northwest.

Hard to keep @MrAndyNgo down.

#Portland #PDX #Seattle
The images of journalist Andy Ngo being targeted and brutalized by a violent mob is truly disturbing. It could have happened to any one of us in the field. As a fellow Asian American journalist in the Pacific Northwest, I stand with Mr. Ngo during his recovery and urge others...
in the journalism community to publicly condemn this on going hate and harassment. As minority journalists trying to fairly and accurately cover our communities, we also need law enforcement and elected officials to refocus efforts to protect journalists on the front lines.
