Michael Harrison, a man in distress using a kitchen knife to wound himself, was shot multiple times by Portland Police officers on Sunday night. It has consistently been the response of the Portland Police Bureau and police worldwide to harass, wound, and murder people experiencing mental health issues. Everywhere we turn cops are killing people of color, the poor, those dealing with mental heath crisis and others marginalized in society. The message is clear that in order to serve the few the many are completely expendable.
LIKE MANY Portland neighborhoods, little flare-ups of kitsch and chic have been popping up around St. Johns, though at a slower pace than in other areas of the city. But one surprising and welcome addition has been Anarres Infoshop and Community Space, a small converted garage located just off the main drag that, for a few days a week, is a buzzing hub for the city's punks and anarchists.
On Tuesday night survey stakes were pulled up at a proposed townhouse development off N. Williams Ave in North Portland. This is an small act of solidarity with the uprising in Baltimore carried out in an effort to highlight the relationship between gentrification and the perpetuation of white supremacy, police repression, and displacement. The dispossessed of Baltimore are not alone in their desire to strike out against a society that is intolerable.
The Portland Radicle* is looking for community members who would like to join other clever and talented ass-kickers in our project of collective liberation.
The Radicle is an anarchist print project that kicked off in 2012. We once had a good rhythm for solicitation and publication, as well as a robust editorial collective. At present, we're down to four people, and we've struggled to publish consistently. While the paper is in no danger of being discontinued, we believe that we would be stronger with more participation and more ideas.
To Our Friends, Family and Community,
The time has come announce that the small but mighty Red & Black Collective will be shutting down. This year we would have turned fifteen years old. In those years, using our collective labor, we have served a lot of vegan dragon noodles and sandwiches. We’ve also made decisions together and taught each other so many skills. We’ve met so many travelers from all over this amazing world and made friendships and relationships that will last forever. We’ve created and maintained some of the only and last low-income housing in inner Southeast Portland.
Our comrades from Spain are calling for an international day of support for anarchist prisoners! #ContraPandora #StopCriminalization
December 16th 2014 we saw 11 anarchists in Barcelona area detained in what has been known as "Operation Pandora".
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.
