Report on coordinated banner drops across Portland, OR in solidarity with the struggle to stop ‘Cop City’ in so-called Atlanta, GA.
Last night banners were hung over I-5 in Portland in solidarity with our comrade in Atlanta who was just murdered by the police. Tortuguita was occupying the Weelaunee forest, putting themself at great personal risk to prevent nearly 400 acres of forest from being clear cut and turned into a $90 million police playground.
If Cop City is built, it will be used as a way for not only Atlanta police, but police from all over the county to practice urban warfare against anyone who dares to stand up to them. It’s necessary to push back against increasing state violence, against rapid environmental destruction, against this racist capitalist system as a whole, for the future of life on this planet.
Rest in peace to our comrade Tort, your death will not be in vain. This is a call to everybody— the time is now to act, to fight back against this cruel and explorative system. We must take action if we want to ensure a habitable future. Cop City will never be built!
