A St. Louis cop got away with killing
another kid… And Portland Activists
are taking it to the streets!
It goes without saying that mainstream media coverage of the Portland Ferguson solidarity protest tonight (which was separate from the planned AMA demonstration earlier today that drew thousands of folks) is completely inaccurate. Far from a few dozen folks “wandering” the streets throwing bottles at cops, there were hundreds of folks purposefully blocking streets and bridges as civil disobedience/direct action, led by multiple Black youth, who were incredibly passionate, thoughtful and inspiring.
