“The question is not: who has the guns? but rather: what do the people with the guns do? 10,000 or 100,000 proletarians armed to the teeth are nothing if they place their trust in anything beside their own power to change the world. Otherwise, the next day, the next month or the next year, the power whose authority they recognize will take away the guns which they failed to use against it.”
In this year, we have seen some of the strongest anarchist resistance to the current american government since the early 20th century. Wether we discuss the riots in DC, or the pothole fixers in Portland Oregon, anarchist have been gaining national traction as the force that will resist the new president at every step he makes, as well as his supporting base.
As anarchist, we have momentum, and why shouldn’t we go full steam ahead?!
This is a call to all anarchist in Portland and beyond, to converge at Shemanski Park (1010 SW Park Ave, PDX OR, 97205) at 1pm.

In a city where the anarchist scene has been fractured and split after a wave of harsh repression almost 5 years ago, a resurgence in the wake of trump's election was unexpected. The media since the "Thursday Riot," as people have called it, has hounded anarchist. Continuing the narrative put into place by local police departments everywhere, anarchist have been branded as mere criminals and fanatics, entrenching themselves within the good and decent peaceful protesters.
