Just got to Willamette Park. Crowd is still small but growing. Several Silver Star shaped balloons
People still arriving at the park, helicopter heard overhead.
Anna, the speaker on the mic, is reading some facts about ICE, & explaining her family's story. Her father is part Vietnamese and part chinese, and because of this had to escape from Vietnam as a young man. He spent many years hiding out in the jungle and on the run to freedom.
@KohzKah now on the mic saying how thankful she is for clean water and shelter and how she just wants that for everyone.
@KohzKah goes on to speak of the massive amount of Central Americans in ICE detention due to fleeing conditions that America caused in their homeland.
"Everyone agrees family is good! And that's all we want is our families to stay together!" - @KohzKah
"41 federal environmental laws have been waived for trump's border wall"
The speaker on the mic is talking about the sad reality of life in border towns. She talks of a family ranch being split up and separated for the construction of the wall.
We are about to start marching!
As the march makes it's way down Macadam the Protesters chant

"This shit is Bananas!"

"Fuck the cops and the white supremacists!"
Each of the balloons from the previous picture have a fact about ICE and their concentration camps printed on them and are currently being carried by the Protesters as they March towards the ICE facility.
"Who's streets?"

"Indigenous streets!"

"Who's streets?"

"Stolen Land!"
"No Borders!"

"No Nations!"

"NO FAMILY SEPARATIONS!"
"FUCK ICE FUCK ICE FUCK ICE!"

"WHAT ABOUT OUR RIGHTS?!"
As we approach ICE the crowd chants

"No good cops! No good presidents!"

"Give the land back to it's original residents!"
Just got to ICE and they are already out.

This was right before the mace cloud drifted into my eyes.
DHS has pushed Protesters down the street after the Protesters already started moving back.
DHS continued pushing Protesters down Moody even though no Unlawful assembly has been called. I personally have not seen any arrests yet just some force being used to intimidate Protesters.
DHS came out and shot some tear gas off and lit a neighbors bush on fire in their second (?) Push of the night.
A DHS agent attempts to throw a tear gas canister only to have a slight mishap.
In honor of Halloween DHS brought out their Tear Gas Fogger machine.
DHS Knocking @BaghdadBrian down.
A great clip from tonight's stream. Thank you! @halfsleeps
