According to organizers, there were some 30-40,000 people at the Portland March 15th rally and march. I want to know where they are?
This weekend, in SF, there were 75,000 people in their march. This weekend, there were never more than about 500 people collected together anywhere, legal, illegal, permitted or otherwise. Where are those 30-40,000?
Where were those people on Thursday at the Day of Bombing rally at Terry Shrunk Plaza? You know, the one that was advertised for a couple months in advance? The one that the police and city said they were supporting?
With months of mobilizing people, they were mostly no-shows when it really counted! Thursday in Terry Shrunk Plaza there was like 4000 people there, maybe 5000 tops. Where are those other 25-35,000?
SF today had 125 arrests as people continued the civil disobedience there. If the progressives and liberals and peace activists in portland who showed up to the March 15th rally do not want to engage in civil disobedience, they should at least have shown up at Terry Shrunk for the Day of Bombing rally, and this weekend say at waterfront park or something. Where are all those people? What is SF doing differently that they get 75,000 this past saturday, and Portland turns out about 500-1000 at most?
These are very important questions to be asking.
