Antifa~Call To Resist Patriot Prayer/Joey Gibson Portland June 30

While many accolytes have broken away from Gibson at this point, the core that remains, largely Proud Boys, have grown increasingly violent. For this reason we must sustain our campaign, and keep up our efforts on as many fronts as possible until they completely cease their despicable activity.

Joey Gibson and his crew of violent bigots unfortunately are once again calling for a rally in Portland which is without fail a pretext for assorted Alt Right bullies, Nazis, homophobes, and unsavory characters to gather in hopes of brutalizing the most vulnerable people they can find.

It is very important that antifascists keep up the pressure so that we can stop them once and for all.

While many accolytes have broken away from Gibson at this point, the core that remains, largely Proud Boys, have grown increasingly violent. For this reason we must sustain our campaign, and keep up our efforts on as many fronts as possible until they completely cease their despicable activity.

At the last demo on June 3rd, the Proud Boys and company came in swinging but much to their dismay the PPB did not act as their private army to the extent they have in the past. Typically the right-wingers have enjoyed a red carpet treatment while antifascists have been on the receiving end of chemical weapons, non-lethals, and other tools of repression.

Without the same level of assistance from the PPB the Patriot Prayer entourage received a steady beating for the majority of the day by antifascists. This was a humilitaing defeat for their side and spurned a two-day temper tantrum where Gibson and his snowflakes whined in an effort to demand better customer service from the PPB.

They have now tried to put a spin on it in typical Gibson style by saying the complete opposite of the truth. He calls his message "love" when the unifying ethos amongst his crew is hate. He calls his rally for " freedom" and "courage" when they actually want to be completely protected in a fortress of police, and are astonishingly cowardly, with a well documented record of attacking the smallest and least threatening people they can find.

Gibson is saying that a bunch of Alt Right supporters from out of state are going to show up. Who knows if this is true. One thing he is absolutely correct about is that the city of Portland will continue to stand up to him and any Trumpsters he ships in. We are indeed city workers, teachers, nurses, bartenders, parents, and people from all walks of life. And we are united in our opposition to the rise of fascism in this country and we sure as hell will not let it take our streets.

No Pasaran!

Portland Indymedia readers (and / or Workerbees-site moderators) are somehow

'unfamiliar'

with PNA-FWC?


Their claimed credentials were posted, here, on Portland Indymedia in ^^this very topic.

and thus, also lies my Question. expecting an answer (from those accountable / knowledgable) to this simple request.


I desire to know (No, not from 'going to their website' / 'going to their FB page' / 'emailing them') what type of "Work" they espouse and represent.

after all they've named themselves, as a 'workers collective'.

Let's all see, here (Not Elsewhere On The Internet) what that actually and truly means.

why dont you grill the Gibson folks 11.Jun.2018 09:19

ONLY 2 SIDES

Indy troll "underscore", is working overtime to defend the proud boys and to pepper antifa with "explain this" type of retrick.

I agree with you, only 2 sides 11.Jun.2018 15:22

A.Z.

Whoever Underscore is, they are a waste of time. Really people, please don't even feed into their strangeness. Number of serious dysfunctions going on there. Just ignore. They do nothing but belittle and bully.

No one can respond with an explanation of

"workers collective"

with respect to PNA-FWC?


That is all that has been simply requested.


yet, who is doing (in Comments here thus far) the "trolling" "belittling" and "bullying" here?


( RE: 'Proud Boys' I have no more of an earthly idea _or care_ who the ***K they are, than I do the 'Pacific Northwest Anti-Fascist Workers Collective'. Each is equally *irrelevant*, to me. )

ok, here's another way to frame it 11.Jun.2018 17:11

since the Genius named "only 2 sides" brought it up ( I certainly did not ),

of persons within the 2 groups named

1) "Pacific Northwest Anti-Fascist Workers Collective"

2) "Proud Boys"


how many individual persons within those 2 groups actually have a _job_

i.e. work for a living ( to pay their bills, rent, support family etc.)

?

Work 12.Jun.2018 08:39

Can't speak for the first group, but Rose City Antifa the other day released the names and related information of four local white supremacists.
