In response, anarchists and other opponents of fascism converged in downtown Portland, despite a massive police operation to reserve the space for nationalists.

Occupy Brasília, 24th of May, 2017

“A demonstration that was planned as peaceful degenerated into violence, vandalism and disrespect, aggression to public order, threats to the people, many of them public servants, who were so terrified that we had to guarantee their evacuation” – Minister of Defense

Occupy Brasília: A national movement, a call from critics of the government of President Michel Temer, critics of labour and welfare reforms. At least these were the official claims. Organized by all kinds of reformers and leftists.

As the smoke from May Day clears we hear many people asking, why? Why did what happen, happen? We also hear many people throwing around baseless accusations and assumptions; it was a bunch of angry white men, there was no message, they weren’t really anarchists, it was just mindless vandalism.
