a statement from Portland Assembly on the Portland Police and Patriot Prayer collaborating Show more
"No one needs to point out the obvious white supremacy involved in the Portland Police Bureau's friendly and permissive relationship with alt-right street gangs.
What should be mentioned, however, is the connection to the attacks on our Trans friends and neighbors over the past few days.
The PPB's enabling of alt-right violence has led directly to these attacks. Police make our communities more dangerous. Their corruption and collusion with white supremacist patriarchy is a threat to us all.
We don't want them retrained. We want them gone.
Defund, Disarm and Disband the Portland Police."
