antifa #Seattle Sunday Aug 25th
The Sparkle Brigade is looking for folx to join them on Sunday August 25th in Cal Anderson Park from 4pm to 7pm to stand in glittering and noisy opposition to the Proud Boys.
Trump said there were "fine people on both sides" after Charlottesville. Today Mayor Ted Wheeler said there were "extremists on both sides" after Portland defended itself. They're saying the same thing. Both are refusing to take a side when a community has to defend itself from outside fascist agitators
Portland pol, -, one last thing and then I'll be done
The protest, while stressful, painful, and dangerous, is not the biggest threat to the city.
When the fash are riled up, bored, drinking, and roving the streets. It's at night, after the cameras go home but before they have to go back to wherever they came from.
I hate encouraging hypervigilance in a community that already stresses enough.
Just keep friends around this weekend, yeah?
The #Trunk is several lists of people who post about a topic here on the fediverse. It's a good way for new people to get started by finding people who share their interest.
