Video: Portland Rally in Solidarity With the People of Ferguson

From the open publishing newswire: Portland action on a national day of solidarity with the people of Ferguson Missouri, where an unarmed teenager was recently gunned down by the local police.

Solidarity Rally with Ferguson

This excerpt from the speakers at the Portland event is from the remarks by Jo Ann Hardesty, long time activist for human rights and opposing abuse of power by Portland Police.

Jo Ann exhorts the crowd not to be confused by the outcry against the militarization of the police. Though this is a tangential issue, the bottom line is in reality the open season on people of color everywhere in this country. "This isn't about what weapons they have; this is about a mind set. This is about a mind set that devalues black life... .when did it become okay for police in the U.S. to just willy nilly say, 'I was scared and shoot someone 28 times.'"

And further, i don't want you to get confused, because I understand they are asking the Federal government to investigate the latest killing, Michael Brown... ..who do you think gave those military weapons to the police department? Don't get confused. This about whether or not you stand for justice This is about whether or not you value every black, brown, white red, yellow life on this planet."

Hardesty eloquently continues to address the wider issue of injustice in the United States of America and what the citizens are going to have to do to shift the current to justice and respect for human life.
