Portland Protesters Are Creating Their Own ‘Autonomous Zone,’ Pitching Tents And Building Barricades

Well, it was only a matter of time before some copycats tried to recreate Seattle’s CHOP Zone, and it’s finally happened. Protesters in the city of Portland have attempted to recreate the “autonomous zone” by setting up tents and attempting to barricade streets, proving once again these people are relentless.

Demonstrators started putting up the tents in the downtown area of Portland’s Lownsdale Square, which is located across the street from the federal Pioneer Courthouse. This is one of the federal properties that the Department of Homeland Security tried to protect by calling on federal officers several weeks ago.

A camera at the Portland Standard Building showed protesters beginning to assemble tents late Tuesday night in the same park where “Occupy Portland” set up in 2011, KATU reported.

An unofficial Twitter page attributed to a group of anti-capitalist, anti-fascist teens who call themselves the Pacific Northwest Youth Liberation Front said protesters want to establish the Chinook Land Autonomous Territory, or CLAT, in downtown Portland. The Chinook people include several indigenous groups native to the Pacific Northwest.

“People are needed here ALL night long, especially in the early morning! Get on over rn! Bring some tents,” the Twitter page said, sharing an image of a barricade that read “ACAB,” an acronym meaning “All Cops Are Bastards,” and “Black Trans Lives Matter.”

The Portland Police Department released a statement on Wednesday stating that a “couple hundred demonstrators gathered at Revolution Hall in Southeast Portland and marched all throughout downtown Portland before ending their march at Pioneer Square” on Tuesday evening.

The police also stated that some of the protesters headed toward the Justice Center and by around 9:15 p.m. stood in the middle of the road — always a horrible decision — and blocked traffic. Once they were there it wasn’t long before they started to build barricades along Southwest Main Street and Soutwest Salmon Street at Southwest Third Avenue.

Barricades consisted of “industrial kitchen appliances, road blockades, and flashing traffic signs.” And, of course, some fires were lit too. Because why not?

Around 1 a.m., demonstrators “in an organized effort” left the barricades and walked to the Central Precinct “in an attempt to disrupt officers as they walked in from the end of their shift,” the police statement said. At that time, officers removed some of the barricades at Southwest 3rd Avenue and Southwest Salmon Street. But demonstrators then began returning to the area and “officers disengaged.”

True to form, demonstrators resorted to throwing glass bottles and pointing lasers at police officers, and then set what was left of the barricades on fire. A few minutes later, one demonstrator put the fire out and others started to rebuild the barricade.

There was no gas or crowd control munitions or force used during the incident.

Save conservative media!

Had to be done.

Donald Trump accomplished more in one term than anybody thought possible. He managed to make even many “never Trump” Republicans see the light, with the way he went about business in the Oval Office. Unfortunately, Trump will not be able to serve a consecutive term and continue to expose government malfeasance. That being said, there’s still a whole lot POTUS can give us before leaving 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. on the 20th.

Joe is quite the card, even after all these decades. WATCH: Joe Biden: “I know President Trump likes to take credit for the economy… Just look at the facts, not the alternative facts. President Trump inherited an economy from Obama-Biden administration that was given to him — just like he inherited everything else in his life.” https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1130179564351741952?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw

School Featured In ‘Remember the Titans’ Might Be Renamed ‘Kamala Harris High’

Great movie, terrible idea.

Giving Kamala Harris the title of vice president is pretty awful. Senator was bad enough. But now she’s going to be honored with her name on a school? What’s next? Forget Harriet Tubman and put the woman who slept her way into politics on the $20? From TDW: T.C. Williams High School, well known for its prominent role in the popular Disney film “Remember The Titans”, could soon be renamed as “Kamala Harris High School.” In November, the Alexandria City School Board voted unanimously to remove Williams’ name due to his support of segregation while serving as superintendent of the Alexandria, VA, school system. According to the school, Williams was a “staunch segregationist whose views could not have been more inconsistent with the vibrant, diverse and inclusive place we know today.” Students are being given the chance to vote. The final decision will be made in April. Other options the kids have to choose from are “George Floyd High School” and “Ruth Bader Ginsburg High School.” If it came down to Kamala, George, or Ruth, you’d have to go with RBG High…right?? Here’s a clip from the film… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aYp94Kk8AdE
