Protests and Feds in Portland and beyond including what you can do

Links and resources to awaken and things YOU can do to help change things for the better.

EVERYONE must support the demonstrations and protests in one way or the other. if you cant get there in person support by spreading word online and in person. The tactics and unconstitutional laws and orders have been placed into being for years and years and now we finally are seeing enough unconstitutional laws and training that they feel they can do anything they want... anything they want, to anyone they want. They do not care about you, me, blacks, whites or anything but serving their puppetmasters which are in office and in boardrooms. Speak up people, speak up.

  1. On the ground in Portland: The latest on the attacks by federal agents A Constitutional Crisis in Portland UPDATE: In response to our lawsuit, a federal court on July 23, 2020, issued a temporary restraining order blocking federal agents in Portland, Oregon, from attacking or arresting journalists and legal observers. https://www.aclu.org/news/criminal-law-reform/a-constitutional-crisis-in-portland/

  2. As for communications, it is a good idea to try to at least be a bit more private and that can be by using Signal app for phone, computer or tablet, it offers encrypted text and voice for free, and there are many, many ways you can make phone and pc communications and browsing more secure such as Mullvad VPN. Some are listed here and if you search you can find tons more and MAKE SURE as much as possible is ``Open Source'' where the code can be checked to make sure it's safe, if it's not Open Source make sure you trust the ones that make the apps, etc https://www.eff.org/issues/privacy where they have tons of info, so please visit there and even read up further by searching out more.

  13. In the 1960's the US spent $2 billion on policing in 2018 the number was $137 billion and that doesn't even include all the money paid out to victims of police violence. Money that could go to social services and people more trained and better equipt to deal with most calls police go on.

Let's talk about Defunding. Defunding means trimming down the amount of cops and having someone go on a call they are suited for much more than a cop. The average cop makes less than 1 felony arrest in the US every year. Most are not protecting us almost all of their day. We don't need as many and we can employ people suited for various issues.

Come on people, open your minds, your eyes and set aside some preconceived and easy comfortable blame and hate, preconceived partisan divided vision and misdirection. We must stand together.

Don't let fear take over, just as in Portland there are MORE people out there now because they see the attack upon us as what it is which is UNACCEPTABLE.

It didn't start with trump, but the ramping up has continued through to now and now is when its getting real bad and dangerous and no one that is paying attention can say that's exaggeration or hyperbole

Stay peaceful but not silent.
