The tools and tactics used by protesters and activists on the streets of Portland have let us stand up against corrupt government, police violence, and even military infiltration of our groups.
A movement that combines a wide range of the tactics as described in the Crimethinc article —the way demonstrators have done in Portland— can hold space in the face of considerable state violence.

On November 11, the Portland Police Bureau shared with its Training
Advisory Council the use of force numbers for 2nd Quarter 2020 related
to "crowd control." The data show that the PPB overall used force 2378
times at protests. While the Force Inspector claimed most of these were
"category IV" low level uses like "control against resistance" and
"resisted handcuffing," in fact 1582 uses-- or 66.5%-- were the use of
chemical agents, impact weapons or "strikes/kicks."

Dissenting commentary now available on different platform "Press**Watch/The News you're not supposed to know" was a long-running (3 decades!) program on KBOO Radio, produced by Theresa Mitchell. Now the headlines and commentary that ran every Thursday morning on the radio is available as a podcast, and the effort is combined with Ani Raven ("Positively Revolting Talk Radio," also a staple on the Boo for many a year.
This week's episode points to the real unemployment numbers, castigates the Feds for their wrist-slap of criminal bank Wells Fargo, and goes into a deeper discussion of the death-squad killing of Michael Reinoehl at the behest of the Orange Mussolini. https://soundcloud.com/ani-40889941/this-is-now-bridge-to-a-better-world-epis...

It is a call to action.

Many times it would be "just him" and his sign.... many other times there were dozens or more who stood together with Joe in solidarity for justice .
Joe worked tirelessly for the ending homelessness and helping the houseless and to Stop the Sweeps. Joe worked tirelessly to get the Police horses off the streets, which finally did happen in Joe's lifetime. For about 1 year he protested every week at Sen. Blumenhour's Portland office, to pressure for the Impeachment of Bush.
Joe Walsh was a warrior for Justice, Peace and Laughter.

I really miss having videos from the resistance get togethers. This brought back good memories.
They are on this youtube channel if anyone is interested.

Libraries should hire additional staff to mitigate the unemployment. Because of the coronavirus, supply chains break off and sixty-percent of businesses cannot come back. The state should represent the public interest, not special or private interests, and give substantial support to small- and medium-sized businesses. Otherwise, we face exploding inequality, economic power becoming political power, & an oligarchy. Whoever sleeps in democracy, wakes up in a dictatorship.
Save the Multnomah Library Staff
The library should be hiring additional staff to redress the unemployment and uncertainty caused by the coronavirus!

violence is not the answer
I'm [IM] history protest was a key factor for discussion.
Violence causing harm and damage often led to consequences that differ than desired goals.
When we founded Indymedia in 1998 and 1999. Our goal was to bring a voice to offer discussion in hope of change.. before, during and after the WTO in Seattle.
The one thing we realized from both sides was discussion was important, violence was counter productive. [...]

Federal law enforcement officers, in unmarked vehicles, have been using information provided by the Joint Base Lewis-McChord Protection Division Anti-Terrorism Office to drive around downtown Portland and snatch protesters off the streets since at least July 14. The tactic appears to be another escalation in federal force deployed on Portland city streets, as federal law enforcement and JBLM military personnel have said they plan to "quell" nightly protests outside the federal courthouse and Multnomah County Justice Center that have lasted for more than six weeks.
