pdx protests, health - 

protesters are now being advised to keep private records of how often they attend protests and how often they are exposed to gas. we're also being advised to get regular cancer screening going forward because we literally don't know what the feds are using on us. the effort required to prepare for a lawsuit like this right now just feel pointless to me, like cool maybe i'll get some money if I'm maimed by the government.

the energy has shifted drastically since the week of George Floyd's death. You don't even hear the word abolish anymore, it's all gross reform talk. There are also definitely a lot more of what I'd call "protest tourists" hanging around - people in street clothes with a mask and nothing else taking pictures of shit. These people are fucking clueless, there are unknown chemical weapons about and crowd control munitions being used and they don't even have helmets or eye protection.

there are a few speakers who have tried to steer things back in the right direction. how repeating George Floyd's is still just grieving, it's been 60+ days and we need action, not grieving. I heard someone shout at the cops that "they are the real communists" lmao. It's amazing that so many people are showing up but it seems like everyone's wires are getting crossed. decentralized non-hierarchies are good and all but can we agree on like, a plan?

the feds are apparently supposed to start to leave the city tommorow but may god strike me down if Im gonna believe that for a second. Trump also said he was sending reinforcements so who fucking knows what will happen.

@pizza I’ve heard feds are still staying to β€œprotect” federal property but also somehow state troopers are coming in in addition/instead? Either way it sounds like a mess.

US Marshals have personnel staying, BORTAC supposedly leaving.

@jackdaw_ruiz @courtney @pizza trust your neighbors, friends the vibe is still good. sometimes it just gets a little bit more stealthy.
