Sept. 8th #PortlandProtests kick off with short rally, with talks about how transit police are police and stops, tickets and arrests are disproportionately black folks.
Marching under Burnside bridge to transit police office. #PortlandProtest
Cops blocking max and street, march then turns
LRAD announcing to not stand on max tracks or interfere with public transit . I predict they will use this to call protest unlawful.
Protesters than make a whole, and cops stay in the way.
Protesters now moving east to get all the way out of the way. Cops still holding minutes later. March now moving down waterfront #PortlandProtest
Protesters facing off again on other side of building, then move south when LRAD makes announcement. Riot cops back up cops that aren't rapid response, then charge unprovoked, coming back with no arrests.
March keeps moving and cops are claiming only march on sidewalks.
Protesters are being #soup unlike what I've seen
Cops arrest 1 for not being on sidewalk. They push me off sidewalk and then say to get on the sidewalk. Then arrest a #MomsDemandAction because she stopped to yell at cops before moving to sidewalk.
Marched to Justice center, cops announced to get out of street, so crowd is moving to City Hall. Riot cops were gearing up in the back
Dance party in front of city hall
Hip Hop performance #PortlandProtesters
Yaya talks about constantly being pulled over, licensed/insured, while never committing crimes. He was arrested recently after car tires slashed and car towed.
Things were chill for atleast an hour with dance and song. Then cops decided to close downtown
Cops chased down black guy tackling him against wall/ground. When they tried to take him, he started puking and having seizure. He was taken out in ambulance. Im assuming head injury. #PortlandProtesters
Crowd marched back and cops came charging grabbing the first person they could grab, not on the sidewalk
Someone crosses street and police chase them down.

Andy Ngo's source he uses to defend his actions on day of #CiderRiot brawl

"At worst, new video footage reveals Ngo to be inattentive and preoccupied with his phone at key moments"

Andy was listening the whole time about weapons they had and the fight they would engage in
Both Andy Quotes, that contradict

"I wasn't paying attention to what was being said.... I didn't see any evidence of a violent conspiracy to launch an attack"

"It's futile, really. I view these demonstrations that they're doing in Portland as futile, so that's why I smiled."
"It [video] does not even establish that the group of right-wing agitators planned an attack—let alone that Ngo was aware of such a plot."

Drury: "I'll take the first 3"
Katy: brick in hand
Deme: with large club

[Thread] Joey Gibson trial for felony riot starts with pretrial motions. One motion by defense tried to prevent testimony from woman who was knocked out by Nazi Ian Kramer, with a baton.

#PatriotPrayer #Riot #CiderRiot Courtroom for Joey Gibson's...
Judge denied motion to keep her from testifying, but agreed she couldn't talk about her broken vertebrae/concussion as she isn't a doctor. These are injuries Andy Ngo falsely tried to claim were faked.
Motion granted to prevent Joey Gibson from being referred to as leader of the group, but not "perceived" leader of group.

He is leader of Patriot Prayer. These right wingers met at his rallies.
Another motion doesn't allow his beliefs to be referred to as "extremist beliefs"

Vadim Mozyrsky running for @JoAnnPDX position, paints himself as a "progressive", while using Right-wing outrage & copaganda to get votes. He went on far-right christian podcast, Slavic Vote, founded by homophobe Dmitry Sashchenko, who was just at #QAnon reawaken America
Somehow Vadim feels like being endorsed by the Portland Business Alliance (PBA), multiple developers & Real Estate associations makes him look good. I guess it looks good for those that matter, the millionaires & billionaires. PBA will come back into play later
2/ Imagine that says vote vadeem Portland city council position
Vadim was one of only a few people (including @save_pdx who leaked fake Joann hit & Run) to testify against re-allocating police funds to community. He regurgitates falsity that spike in gun violence is caused by budget cut, even though violent crime has spiked nationwide.

@DanTilkinKOIN6 pulling the "DA backed by rich jew." Same Jew the far right hates based on antisemitic conspiracy theories. Thing is, Soros didn't even donate to @DeckerforDA, it was @DrugPolicyAct that donated to Decker. Soros has donated to @DrugPolicyAct. Reaching a bit.
@DanTilkinKOIN6 why not do a story on the guy that donated 10x that amount, the 11 out of state donors that donated to @KevinBarton4DA or @nikestore, Phil Knight donating $100k to Barton. Or that Decker has 2x as many small donors (under $250) as Barton, or..
...that @KevinBarton4DA uses advertising co. owned by Mark Parrish who is connected to Patriot Prayer members, Bundy affiliates and homophobic Christian fundamentalist groyp PRIE. Not to mention Barton's shitty track record and fear mongering.

Ted Wheeler press conference now about shooting on Saturday. @Rjaellis starts with question about Wheeler statement last year about making protesters "hurt a little" and if he feels responsible for political violence. Ofcourse he doesn't take responsibility
@ChiefCLovell claims he's not gonna speculate about political motive by shooter who yelled at protesters calling them terrorists and had tons of evidence showing he was vocal about wanting to kill BLM and Antifa
