A car just drove thru a crowd of protesters, dragging one on his hood, during a peaceful demonstration in SE #Portland.

The group of approx. 25 temporarily occupied an intersection in an act of civil disobedience in a demand for the abolition of police.

#pdx #portlandprotests
There seems to be some confusion re: the circumstances here.

No one attacked this car.

The majority of vehicles (several hundred over the course of approx. 30 minutes) chose to drive around the block rather than confront protesters.
Only this vehicle and several others instead turned and drove into the group.

The man who ended up on the hood of the car was standing there when the car drove into him.

To anyone hung up on the term “peaceful”, I maintain that this was a nonviolent demonstration.

#PDXprotests #PortlandProtests
As stated in a previous tweet last night, there were around 200+ protesters at ICE last night. About a minute before the first rush from the feds, my gas mask broke. I went the entire night with no mask, inhaling everything that was used to disperse the crowd 2/

There were numerous gassings which included the use of CS, OC, and HC gas. My eyes immediately burned and my face was on fire. Multiple times I had to stop filming to run away from the gas which filled a city block. The first time gas was used, I started choking and threw up 3/ Image

THREAD: Portland's Antifa movement held a New Years Eve demonstration Thursday night that became the first declared riot of 2021.

Police confronted the crowd with riot munitions as activists shot fireworks at them.

Filmed by @MaranieRae for @N2Sreports. Contact me for licensing
Activists set fire to a "Blue Lives Matter" flag outside the Justice Center shortly before Portland Police declared the event a riot.
In some instances, the Black-bloc clad activists were able to get riot police to retreat.

Toward the end of this clips, police continue to disperse pepper spray while walking backwards.

this man just pointed a gun directly at me.

he then got out & threatened the group of 30+/- ppl near the ICE building in #Portland

he said that "all lives matter" & that he was military

the vehicle is a dark Land Rover with no plates

#pdx #portlandprotests #thisisamerica
This is some of the altercation that followed.

I know I’m fortunate it took until 33 to have a gun pointed at me but damn. That was rough.

This man needs to be held accountable.


#portland #pdx #portlandprotest #thisisamerica
@RedheadNomad was on scene & to captured clear images of both men involved (man in green sweatshirt helped to de-escalate; he is not w/ them).

I’m near certain we’ve confirmed their names & places of work.

Dear Internet: What would you do?

[Thread] There has been alot of assumptions and misinformation about racial demographics of #PortlandProtests, as well as right wing propaganda claiming "violence" is being allowed by the DA. First I'll address race...
2/In this very white city, only 6% percent of Portland is Black, but 10% of arrestees are black. Portland Police have also been labeling POC as white. This means that even at protests against racist policing, black people are disproportionately impacted.
3/ This also shows there aren't a lack of black folks protesting nightly. 75% of charges are for things that have nothing to do with property damage or violence. This means cops are mainly arresting people for protesting (calling it interfering, disorderly or failure to obey).

A few videos from last night’s protests in Portland that I didn’t have time to post in my original thread.

Don’t think anyone was arrested in this clip, just shoved around.
