Fuck the Cops & the Feds! Olympia Solidarity With PDX

submitted anonymously –

A call was put out for a demo here in Olympia in solidarity with Portland against the deployment of the federal agents. I showed up to the Heritage Park Fountain a little late but when I got there I was greeted by a crowd size I haven’t seen since the beginning of the uprising. There was probably around 150 people, 75-100 of them in bloc and geared up with helmets, shields, umbrellas, and a few gas masks.

2020 Uprising Ongoing

cops don't cum

On Saturday, July 25th, 2020, revolutionaries gathered in cities across the country in response to the deployment of unmarked vans filled with ICE and other fascist personnel to Portland, OR, snatching comrades off of the streets in recent weeks; as well as plans to send these thugs to other cities in the weeks to come. Meanwhile, the murder of black people by police and right-wing civilians continues unabated. Precincts were attacked, State vehicles burned throughout the night, and countless federal buildings were smashed.

Kristina was a participant in the CHOP in Seattle who frequently used her social media (@krisbeverlin on Twitter and @mindfulexplorer on Instagram) to share #BLM posts and criticisms of the police.

As protests continue to sweep the nation, a narrative has emerged blaming alleged “anarchists” for stirring the pot. They are, the story goes, materializing out of nowhere to sow chaos, put marginalized people at risk and generally make more peaceful protesters look bad.
