Antifa violence in Portland, OR
First, from the violent Antifa protesters
From their Facebook page
Important advice from the NLG:
Portland leftists, happy #Stonewall50! To celebrate, there will be another fucking fash bash tomorrow. Proud Boys are rallying to both commemorate the year anniversary of last year’s bloody street brawl, the “Battle of Portland,” in addition to some #HimToo fuckery, organized by Haley "Rebel Barbie" Adams. There's sure to be plenty of white nationalism, as always, as well as open celebrations of violent misogyny and homophobia. Again, some things to keep in mind:
-The National Lawyers Guild's (NLG) Portland Chapter will be staffing the jail support hotline: 503-902-5340. Please write this on your body in sharpie! This is a number to call if you are arrested, witnessing an arrest (of a leftist), or if you've witnessed or experienced police violence (against someone on the left). Please do not call us to simply describe the brawls between Antifa and Patriot Prayer/Proud Boys, as our role is to support leftists subject to state violence (including policing and incarceration)
-The NLG will have legal observers on the ground, wearing bright green hats, who are there to monitor police conduct, help track arrests (of leftists), write the jail support hotline number on you if you forgot it, etc. Please note that some fash wear bright green hats to these demos, so check to make sure the folks you think are LO's have hats that read, "National Lawyers Guild Legal Observer"
-Rose City Antifa has documented numerous threats of violence toward leftists that fascists have been making on social media, so expect them to be carrying weapons that will not be confiscated by the police
-We have seen the police actively coordinating with the far-right, and are aware that they target leftists with their "less-lethal" weapons and for arrest, including after witnessing violence initiated by the far-right
-Expect random police searches and checkpoints intended to confiscate weapons (including flagpoles and banners) from leftists, that are not enforced against civilian fascists
-DO NOT TALK TO THE POLICE! Even if you think you're good at it / think you can get them to quit their jobs / think the conversation is innocuous! They are trained to seek information, and they can legally lie to you! Under NO circumstances are you legally required to talk to any law enforcement agent. This includes when you're on the street, in jail, or if police or district attorneys or their investigators call you after the fact. You don't have to speak with them or call them back! If this happens, call a lawyer (the NLG does field this)! --> If you do get arrested or detained, repeat to the police, "I am going to remain silent. I want a lawyer." If they ask to search your belongings, or start searching, state, "I do NOT consent to this search (or any searches)." At no time during any street interaction with law enforcement (or in jail) in Oregon do you legally have to produce a phone number or ID
-DO NOT go alone! And make sure you have an exit strategy/off-site meeting location for you and your crew. As we keep witnessing, things can get very violent very quickly. Check in with yourself around what you can actually withstand. Leaving early (with a buddy) is ok! Stay alert and stay vigilant!
