Another verbal confrontation between the several Pro-Newsom group and some pro-Recall people. LBPD stationing several more vehicles nearby, as several walk through.
Things getting crazy. Will fill in blanks later. Trump side is on each corner now, police seem to not be able to contain.
(Moving backward a little) As rumors began that President Biden would be going to be going through the intersection of Carson / Faculty, a group of pro-Recall began assembling on the other side.
Another view once things beginning to get confrontational, this time from the pro-Newsom side (beginning to be just one of the sides, lots of mixing)
Police beginning to form a small line across the street from the entrance to LPCC. One pro-Recall man being yelled at for being on the pro-Newsom side.
As the pro-Recall Ralliers fill the streets and the median, LBPD informs several of the pro-Newsom people they need to remain in the street. I’d put the numbers at about 500+ pro-Recall, less than 20 pro-Newsom. Pro-Newsom Ralliers upset about what they feel is uneven policing.
Pro-Recall demonstrators take over all corners and several medians within the road as the Biden caravan speeds through. Groups begin making their way further down Faculty closer to the entrance to LPCC where Biden is scheduled to speak.
Pictures of the Presidential limousines while pulling into LBCC.
As the caravan of President Biden continues, some shoving of pro-Recall protestors. One pro-Newsom protestor yells “get ‘em out.”
A view from the pro-Recall side of things after Biden arrived.
Yet another thread break
LBPD forming a line on Carson street- crowd chanting “USA! USA!”
Traffic going through now, after pro-Recall side moved to sidewalk.
Another verbal confrontation between pro-Recall and pro-Newsom sides. Pro-Recall side calling one of the Newsom supporters a pedophile.
Earlier: “There’s only so many of us.” A LBPD officer’s response to a protestor asking why the pro-Newsom corner was being told to stay in one place as the pro-Recall side filled the median and roads
A CHP cruiser makes its way through the pro-Recall protestors in the street. Pro-Recall supporters run to the Pro-Newsom sode and begin chanting “Trump! Trump! Trump!”
LBPD beginning to set up a loudspeaker. Sheriff’s Hazmat unit driving past.
Mobile “slinky” barricade being transported in.

Originally, the several pro-Biden were told to go about 30 feet back from the corner while the pro-Recall group were allowed to remain around 6 feet from the street. One man began explaining Sovereign Citizen views to justify standing closer to another pro-Recall protestor.
Pro-Recall side growing in size as more move from further down the street to Faculty.

Good afternoon! In anticipation of a visit from President Biden, who will be in Long Beach later today there are about 20 pro-Recall / Larry Elder supporters and a small group of pro-Biden / Newsom supporters. Some verbal confrontation has already happened, this was sent to me.
One of the protestors says he’s here to give President Biden a “warm welcome,” and gave up his ticket in order to be with the small group for safety.
“John Lewis, we will fight to the bitter end but we will fight,” one pro-Biden/Newsom supporter says.

Good morning! On a weekday drive, stumbled into a Get Out The Vote event with 2 people against the recall. There were rumors of a counter protest from the right wing but currently two people in support of a no vote in Long Beach.
One counter protestor leaving the area currently. Image
A few pedestrians have stopped by and grabbed pamphlets and/or buttons. A few vehicles (like this one) have shouted obscenities in favor of the recall.

My 9/11 story:
After quite a few transfers, moves and whatnot I found myself living in an upper middle-class, white dominant suburb of Milwaukee, WI and going to high school the day the towers were hit.
The first image I saw was in a home room or study hall- there was no volume on the television but it was clear that *something* had hit the first tower. Being a very insular community, I remember at that time kids saying “that’s crazy,” then going about their day
The second tower hit during a Math class. Teacher thought it was important to “keep doing things normally,” and proceeded to hand out tests while keeping the television on. Kids took a test while watching images of bodies tumbling down to their deaths and the first tower falling.

Good afternoon everyone! I’m OTG in Portland, covering a protest / counter-protest. I’ll be doing things a little differently than usual, as Portland is not my home. Expect updates but much slower than usual.
Currently, quite a few people in Bloc waiting at a fountain nearby. Hearing reports that the right wing protestors are (as of now) at a location several miles away.
Ran into @LCRWnews ‘ Abner Hauge. He was kind enough to talk about the situation: outside of one group of three people, there’s been no sighting of any groups associated with the right wing in the park as of yet.

Good evening! There’s yet another anti mask demonstration outside Harlowe in West Hollywood, which have been going on for several days. As they prepared, there were several crackles that sounded like tasers. Yesterday, the group sent @VPS_Reports to the emergency room.
Here’s a thread with several overlapping videos showing him being surrounded, chased, pushed and struck.
Seeing several in tactical vests, several weopon pouches, several knives among the anti vaccine group. Several obstructing their faces with umbrellas and flag gaiters. Several “lookie loos” nearby.
