The seemingly unending rioting and violence has consumed the area around the courthouse for over seven weeks, and has at times even featured Portland’s mayor, Ted Wheeler, who was purportedly pepper-sprayed when he, along with other protesters, refused to disperse.
The courthouse falls under the jurisdiction of federal authorities including the United States Marshals Service and the Department of Homeland Security, who has been criticized by some in the community for attempting to protect the building. Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi have gone so far as to call the federal officers “storm troopers” and to suggest that their activities are unamerican.
That wasn’t true as the Federal officers only did their job and protected the courthouse!
Antifa encouraged by the mainstream media and the Dems decided to “fight back”.
They are planning a day of terrorism across the country in retaliation for the feds doing the job that Portland police won’t do after they took control of the rioting mobs.
The terrorist act is planned for today.

Youth abolitionists are calling for a national and global march against the institution of policing. We are demanding justice for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Stephon Clark, Philando Castille, Eric Garner, Quanice Hayes, Patrick Kimmons, Sean Monterrosa and the thousands more taken by the hands of racist police. Time and time again, the neo-liberal state has offered promises of “reform” with no real action ever taken. The time for discussing reform is over, we need full abolition for our communities to be safe and free from rampant police terror.
We are calling on all abolitionists, youth or non youth, to coordinate mass protests on July 25th to show the world that the fire of this uprising is still burning strong, and that flames will just keep getting bigger until the police state has been dismantled once and for all.
This call to action comes right after Trump has announced he will be sending the federal troops that have been occupying Portland, Oregon, all across the nation. The Federal Government has already waged war against Portland, which has been protesting everyday for 50 days straight, and now feds are going to war against protesters everywhere in an attempt to take control and snuff out the fire of this uprising. We must become more powerful than them.
Form an affinity group.
Bring a friend.

-PNW Youth Liberation Front.

So this is the full list and if you live near these events just avoid them, their main goal is to create anarchy!
