Fuck the Cops & the Feds! Olympia Solidarity With PDX

A call was put out for a demo here in Olympia in solidarity with Portland against the deployment of the federal agents. I showed up to the Heritage Park Fountain a little late but when I got there I was greeted by a crowd size I haven’t seen since the beginning of the uprising.

Precincts were attacked, State vehicles burned throughout the night, and countless federal buildings were smashed.

Stonewall Means Riot Right Now

From Crimethinc

What the Queer Uprisings of 1969 Share with the George Floyd Protests of 2020
