A Love Letter...

please share widely.

#Love #resist #abolishDHS #FightOn #OccupyICE #NoFascistUSA A manifesto: We act to love this world... long block of text.
It’s another beautiful day at #occupyICEPDX

#abolishICE #abolishDHS
Happy punk dance party to ICE ICE Baby!

Another arrest. Zip tied wrists and feet. Carried out.

Less than lethals (that still injure & sometimes kill).
Activist walking back and forth in front of DHS riot line, playing recording of caged immigrant children crying.

Blessed be anarchist antifascist organizing. Despite a DHS raid, breakfast is still being served. Pancakes and eggs.

“We are the fire that will melt ICE.” Main camp still holds fast.

@tedwheeler & @ChloeEudalyPDX, we were assured at yesterday’s city council meeting that PPD would not help DHS. Yet they are blocking roads to aid this raid. And are local jails receiving the arrestees?

Portlanders, please call @tedwheeler and insist he keep his promise about PPD noncompliance with DHS and ICE. Blocking roads & jailing arrestees is compliance.

Coffee, not cops.

I’ve got the co-working space set up at Bancroft & Moody. Come down. There’s coffee.

Announcement that this is Portland —not federal— property.

Chants, “whose streets, our streets!”

“I could be your son! I could be your daughter! You look like my mom, you look like my father!”

Just called a Lyft for an immigrant family with two children who showed up to report in. The mother says they were held in cages.

An undocumented activist is speaking. “Once you lose the fear, nothing else can happen to you.”

#chingalamigra #occupyicepdx
She speaks to her activism, and getting threatened with deportation. We are privileged here at #OccupyICEPDX. Use your privilege.

“May we know Peace, while we make it.”
I quoted the Odyssey and the Havamal on welcoming the stranger. Together, we chanted Invoke Compassion, Manifest Justice.

#somoteitbe #OccupyICEPDX
“No hate! No fear! Immigrants are welcome here!”

#OccupyICEPDX #abolishice
Queers against ICE.

#OccupyICEPDX #AbolishICE
More middle aged white people have shown up, so I’m tapping out for substantial protein & to finish my work.

#OccupyICEPDX #AbolishICE #abolishDHS #EndFamilyDetention
Stay safe.
Stay strong.
Stay in love.

Please read all 4 of these screenshots from Tiana Smalls.

I’ll follow w a thread of a similar experience:

#Resist #Solidarity
Solidarity & resistance can be simple, folks. But it does take speaking up, which I know can feel hard.

I’ve done this myself in various situations. One in particular stands out:
Police came on a BART train I was on and were going to take a man away (he was Black and developmentally disabled). He was terrified and started reciting a phone number, asking someone to please call his mother who would worry when he didn’t show up.
