GREETINGS TO PORTLAND FROM SF! KEEP THE MOVEMENT STRONG!
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN OUR REPRESENTATIVES IGNORE US.
they're breaking out the tear gas & riot guns in SF. this is day 2 here. over 1400 have been arrested, hundreds more are being arrested as I write this. the police are getting vicious here: a 14 year old girl was thrown facedown on the pavement, an old woman kicked in the stomach, multiple people hit in the face with batons, fingers broken, & one woman was run over by a police motorcycle. more mass arrests will likely occur tonight at 5PM and on, and on...
ORGANIZERS BE CAREFUL! THE POLICE ARE SINGLING OUT ORGANIZERS & CHARGING THEM WITH FELONY CONSPIRACY CHARGES.
marching tactics are important! the police are getting wiser. send out runners ahead of your marches & get multiple marches going if you've got enough people. I know Portland more spread out than SF but you can still shut it down using similar HIT AND RUN street blockade tactics. small, mobile affinity groups can run circles around the cops.
