Hi there, coming at you from the Anarchist Jurisdiction of Portland: specifically, Laurelhurst Park, where perhaps 100 protesters have gathered in preparation for tonight's activities

Let's see what happens

@ShieldPDX has clearly been working overtime: just a ton of shields on offer tonight! The NLG and medics tent hands out ear plugs and hand sanitizer; Good Trouble distributes snacks ImageImage
"Move at 8" has been a lie each and every time, and also tonight. My money's on 9:00, as in the days of yore

More people trickling in. It's a small group tonight

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

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

“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/
On Saturday, a caravan of Trump supporters, including members of the far-right group Patriot Prayer, entered Portland. During an altercation with counter protestors, a man named Aaron Danielson was shot & killed oregonlive.com/portland/2020/… #PortlandProtests 2/

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

Oh boy. Let's see what happens

Like the Kaiser Chiefs in the early 2000s, I predict a riot

I predict this no matter what the protest does. National attention is on us. The police have a chance to really drive home that "violent anarchist" narrative tonight, and I expect them to lean into it hard

Hello, I am crossing the Road Island bridge and looking behind to see an absolute wall of Trump-flag-flying trucks jamming McLoughlin from before Ross Island to Morrison

Massive numbers, heading downtown

New thread
I have just arrived at the Justice Center, where some protesters have gathered. Gonna keep things pretty vague because, you know, things seem very much in flux

This is probably going to be a very slow tweet thread and then, suddenly, a very busy one
We're at the Morrison Bridge and it's safe to say we've found the convoy

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
