prisons & prisoners occupy portland

Reportback from NYE jail solidarity noise demo

Tonight a group of about 20 folks, mostly in black, gathered outside the Donald E. Long juvenile detention center at 1401 NE 68th Avenue in Portland. Several anarchist slogans were spray-painted on the outer walls, including "Jail the guards, burn the prisons" and circle-A.

We played an anti-cop hip-hop and punk mix really loudly over our super awesome janky-ass bumping dance chariot (aka mobile sound system).
It should be noted that there was almost zero police interference.

Jail the guards! Burn the prisons!
