We've joined with @OregonPSR to call for an independent investigation by legislators into the recent wildfire evacuations from #Oregon prisons. Our newsletter has more details, or read this thread to learn what incarcerated Oregonians experienced. https://mailchi.mp/ojrc/vvvg4fytj7-2434210 #orpol

“Anarchist jurisdiction”

Always nice when a federal DOJ memo reads like it was written by Andy Ngo’s summer intern.
The reasoning and writing would both be unacceptable in most middle schools, but hey, You Do You, Hitler Youth Conservative Intellectuals!

For those (thankfully) not in the loop...

Getting shot in the groin by Feds and PPB is a common experience out there. People wear cups.

The cops know exactly what they’re doing and their dumb overseers don’t care. At this point the cops’ vengeance desires are all that matters.

Just like in Oregon, L’ville elected officials and the police making sure they work OT together to violently suppress protests against their murder racket.

“We gonna kill you however we want, we gonna attack the people that mad however we want, and you all gonna learn that.”

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Louisville, Kentucky, police canceling vacations in preparation for announcement in Breonna Taylor case.

Whether Feds or PPB, their leaders tell public officials one week “oh we have to do these tactics for these important reasons”, and then a week later they just do entirely different things right out in the open.

They lie and dare you to call them on it. Typical abuser stuff.

More footage from last night at the ICE detention center. I’ve never seen federal officers have to reload their weapons so many times. A LOT of munitions and crowd control agents being deployed

The amount of mutual aid work on the ground is going to start making people realize their government are useless.

Theyre going to ask themselves, "Where was my government in my time of need?", properly off blamimg someone else for the problems they should be helping you with.🤬

Richard Bowman II or Operation Werewolf “likes” a comment on his Facebook post that says “Hi**er was right.” The poster goes on to talk about “negroes,” “culture destroyers,” and “the jew.”

This psuedo-philosophical positioning has earned him a steady following on social media that consists of both pro-Trump boomers and extreme neo-Nazis affiliated with Operation Werewolf and other projects. Richard Oliver Bowman II lives in Wilsonville, Oregon, with his wife, Priya

I’ve spent two years too afraid to write about this monster and his dark little world. I’m not really comfortable being part of a story - especially this kind of story. But I suppose this is how to make Nazi lemons into long-form lemonade.

Groups such as OJRC and Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility (OPSR) made calls to action Thursday, demanding the state and Gov. Kate Brown release more inmates to improve conditions in prisons.

Announcing a change in our call-to-action for Sep. 26th! A huge anti-fascist community event will take place on Saturday, Sep. 26th at Peninsula Park from 12 PM-3 PM, organized by @PopMobPDX, @PortlandDSA, and us, featuring lots of radical local organizations and collectives.

Join us in asking @CashApp to prevent fascist Proud Boy Joe Biggs (https://rosecityantifa.org/tags/joe-biggs/; https://twitter.com/search?q=from%3Arosecityantifa%20biggs&src=typed_query) from fundraising on their platform for the hate group's 9/26 rally in Portland, where they have promised violence. Report $ssgbiggs. https://twitter.com/letsgomathias/status/1306709440817762304

Some important context: Facebook was repeatedly warned about a Kenosha militia organizing on the platform, and did nothing, before Kyle Rittenhouse killed two anti-racist protesters there. https://www.huffpost.com/entry/portland-proud-boys-rally-facebook-extremist-ban_n_5f63bfa7c5b6ba9eb6eb6d7a

The impunity & assistance Portland police have offered to violent fascist & neo-Nazi organizations in recent years (https://rosecityantifa.org/articles/listening-session-statement/; https://rosecityantifa.org/articles/2019yir/) may seem shocking—and it should—but it is also part of a very long tradition. https://www.ohs.org/blog/the-first-time-nazis-marched-in-portland.cfm https://twitter.com/OrHist/status/1087763319350611968

Working with museum artifacts is all about telling a story, and an unassuming naval hat ribbon led OHS staff through a journey into a piece of Portland’s more alarming past — the week Nazis marched through Portland and its residents threw them a party.

This is Brian, he came armed to the Georgia detention center sterilizing immigrants to intimidate protesters and yell slurs. I embarrass him to the point where he gets confused and tells me I’m hot. He put hands on protesters and the ICE agents knew his name 🙃

Antiracist and antifa protesters have been blamed for most of the violence perpetrated by the far right and the police. https://truthout.org/articles/conspiracy-theories-by-cops-fuel-far-right-attacks-against-antiracist-protesters/

Proud Boys had announced their event to start at 1PM. It is now past 1 and they have not shown up. It’s unknown whether or not they will actually show their faces, but either way there are at least 500 counterprotesters out here celebrating a beautiful day in the park

Please continue to watch our social media, as well as @PopMobPDX and @PortlandDSA, over the next few days for more details about Saturday’s community event, plus an article overview of local far-right organizers behind upcoming rallies, and any/all plan changes likely to arise!

Anyone who has further questions, or is looking to coordinate specific community safety/defense efforts with us on Saturday should feel free to contact us via email (in our bio!) or through another secure channel, and we’ll respond as quickly and comprehensively as we are able.

We still won't tolerate any further attempts by violent fascists to intimidate and harm Portlanders and vulnerable communities, but we refuse to allow the Proud Boys’—or any other far-right group’s—self-involved, edgelord antics to over-determine our tactical choices.

Folks coming with bloc gear, shields, etc. ready at hand will also be welcome--and needed!--at the Peninsula Park community event, since it will be an obvious potential target for far right agitators hoping to engage in violence and harassment beyond the confines of Delta Park.

For those who are willing and equipped to directly counter fascists moving further into the city to assault and intimidate on the 26th, we're asking that interested affinity groups be set up and able to respond rapidly to fascist pop-up rallies that may occur throughout the day.

For those planning on joining us at Peninsula Park: Feel free to bring supplies, zines, art, etc. to share! Please wear a mask, practice social distancing, and regularly wash or sanitize your hands and any shared items. There will be speeches, music, and food available as well!

(To be clear: We are absolutely aware that a number of houseless folks are currently camping in/around Delta Park. There are community orgs already in touch with the people living there about these far-right rallies, helping coordinate any/all support they want on Saturday.)

We believe, at the moment, that the needs and response capacity of our community will be best served by an event where folks can come to receive support, share resources and information, and collectively prepare to respond to any fascist incursions into Portland neighborhoods.

Since Thursday morning, when the Proud Boys announced that the location of their September 26 fascist rally had supposedly now been changed to Delta Park, we’ve been communicating with other anti-fascists in town in order to formulate a new plan for collective responses that day.

“URGENT CALL TO ACTION! You are needed now! Border wall panels have now arrived at A’al Vappia /Quitobaquito Springs. The spring is becoming less accessible due to new fencing and heightened security. We are calling all O’odham, Indigenous Relatives, & Trusted Allies to come NOW>

Border Patrol agents and @NatlParkService officers move in on demonstration, scuffle with demonstrators. “Do not hurt our relatives,” says on a O’odham speaker. “We have been here for thousands of years. Our language, our culture surpasses your weapons.”

LMPD (Louisville police) declare State of Emergency in preparation for Grand Jury announcement on Breonna Taylor.

Still no word on when - most expect this week.

Indigenous-led demonstration occupies a construction line at Organ Pipe National Monument. Private security, National Park Service, Border Patrol and Mexican federal officers on scene.

Hilarious to see the grifters rushing to cover for the Proud Boy's failure in Philly in the face of hundreds coming out against them by calling it all a "trick." Guess the PBs were trying to trick their own members by posting about it so much on their own Telegram.

the great $1 billion defunding of the nypd was some sleight of hand budget nonsense that in the words of the City’s Independent Budget Office: "a capital budget change of this size likely represents a reduction of less than $50 million in annual terms."

The Justice Department has designated New York City, Portland and Seattle “anarchist jurisdictions" under a directive from Trump to withdraw federal funds from such cities.

Criteria for the designation includes defunding of police forces or refusal to employ federal troops.

The Proud Boys, a far-Right and pro-Trump street gang with direct ties to the Republican Party and who mobilize on the street often with neo-Nazis and white nationalists, were a no show at their own rally today. Hundreds of locals came out to oppose them. https://www.inquirer.com/news/proud-boys-philadelphia-clark-park-protest-20200919.html

1/ Meet Philadelphia Proud Boy Richard Schwetz, aka "PhillyDick" aka "Dick Sweats."

He was at the Proud Boys' "rally" in West Philly on Saturday, threatening to dox protesters.

He works for @InovaPayroll in Reading, PA.

Hey, @InovaPayroll, why do you employ hate group members?

10/ And if any Proud Boys are reading this right now-- this is what happens when you come into our communities to spread your hate.

You come out to Portland on the 26th, you get identified and then we get you fired.

It's as simple as that.

Meet Jonathan Adam Schutz, a Trump supporter, white supremacist, and convicted pedophile living in Reno, NV.

We feel that Jonathan’s past conviction and choice to uphold the tenets of white supremacy is a threat to our community and you should know more about him.
