Running Down the Walls in Portland Raises Over 1.7K for Political Prisoners

Report back from Running Down the Walls event in so-called Portland, Oregon. For more information on Running Down the Walls, check out the Anarchist Black Cross (ABC) Federation.

Over 60 people ran, walked, biked, and roller skated along the Willamette river in beautiful weather for this year’s 5k! After a BBQ, statements by comrades Oso Blanco, Jalil Muntaqim, and Ray Luc Levasseur about this years Running Down the Walls were read aloud. A former political prisoner shared her experience about being in solitary and expressed beautifully and powerfully how important prisoner support is to those locked up.

Tour style shirts were sold with a list of this years group prisoner escapes, they were a big hit!

RDTW raised funds for both the ABCF Warchest and Weelaunee forest defenders facing repression from the ongoing efforts to #StopCopCity.
