As I was riding past East Burnside just now, I witnessed a dour Circle K employee scrubbing a circled A off the wall of the convenience store. Evidence of last night's anti-cop protest is already succumbing to bleach.
"Cops, Pigs, Murderers!" begins the email, launching into a description of last night's 50-person protest that marched up Burnside.
"The resistance took to the streets and left some minor destruction in their path to the precinct. The cops nest of filth was guarded by dozens of their fellow assailants who set up a police barricade on the block. Some toting riot gear and high powered rifles the pigs showed full force in order to guard their doors so that the resistance didn’t smash its way in demanding justice!"
Tonight's rally will be a "general assembly and march to oppose police violence" says the email, closing with
No racist police
No racist state
Anarchy = Equality
So be prepared.
