In honor of Mike Brown, and in response to the grand jury decision not to
prosecute Darren Wilson, protests and disturbances occurred across the
country on Black Friday. Protesters invaded malls and shopping centers, shut
down public transit, halted commerce, and demanded vengeance for Mike Brown
and all victims of police shootings.

In Seattle, several events were called for, but all blended together in a 5
hour long roaming march and disruption of Capitol Hill and downtown. Energy
was high, as was antagonism against the police and business as usual. What
follows is a partial account—the authors were not present for the entire
event, and could not have seen everything in any case. This is from our
perspective, but more perspectives, and more reportbacks, are always

Portland went HARD AS FUCK last night!

Yesterday, 1,500 people gathered downtown infront of the justice center. This place is not only the central precinct for the police, but also serves as a jail. The perfect place to hold a rally within the context of darren wilson, and police violence in general.

This event was organizing by the AMA coalition, a group host organizations that are known collaborators with the police. Old church men who would rather sing songs to them, and invite the police chief himself, then confront them.

Without organizers, politicians or permission, 200 of us gathered at Lafayette Square the night after the Grand Jury's decision not to indict Darren Wilson, the white cop who murdered Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager. We gathered because the state's repressive apparatus has claimed another victim. We gathered because even if such violence is a distant reality for some, the horror it inflicts on the world affects us all nevertheless.

The National Guard is now on the streets of St. Louis and Ferguson, continuing the racist cops' war on behalf of the rich against the poor.
