Here are several thoughtful pieces on the Oscar Grant rebellion published by various groups in the Bay Area. I am publishing the links here in the hopes that radicals in Portland can learn form the failures and successes of the struggle in Oakland.
The piece's all come form different ideologies and practices, and come to some different conclusions, but all are worth reading and considering. I know that many will be familiar with at least some of these these, but my hope is that the experiences of your comrades in the Bay can be used to help push the fight in PDX. Do not let non-profiteers control the struggle!
The first is from an anonymous group of anarchists:
Second, from Advance the Struggle, a communist group:
Third, from Bring the Ruckus, a reply to the previous piece, posted at Advance the Struggle:

I hope this is helpful, solidarity and love from the Bay Area!
