May 1 protests downtown

If you haven’t heard, there will definately be a major march/demonstration in downtown Portland tomorrow May 1. In 2000, the MayDay protest got ugly with riot police being called in. This year, with the immigration issue at the forefront, I expect the anarchists and gutter punks to use what would normally be a peaceful rally to hide their violent action. be prepared if you are downtown or plan on being there anytime betwen 12noon and 5pm. also, if you are downtown, be careful. you never know when such events can turn ugly. obviously, someone is preparing to get arrested.

come back to Portland Metblogs for possible up to date live from the scene footage.

    “obviously, someone is preparing to get arrested”

    Oy. All protests — be they clearly peaceful or clearly trouble in advance — post jail support numbers. That this one has done so means absolutely nothing.
