    Tactics and Teargas

    Tactics and Teargas

    Inspired by past resistance movements, Portland has at different points adopted a variety of tactics used to achieve protest objectives. Broken windows, graffiti, and nearly nightly dumpster fires has lead the perception that Portland is in ruin. But if you dig deeper than the snappy headlines you’ll find the real destruction that’s facing the city and local ecosystem is due to the unprecedented amount of poison gas munitions used in an American city.

    The Return of the Right

    The Return of the Right

    For decades, Portland has been one of the USA's most violent battlegrounds between the white supremacist right and the anti racist left. In 2020, after months of anti police demonstrations, American fascists again took to the streets of Portland for what would be one of the bloodiest brawls in its history.

Really impressive work by journalists on the ground

I feel very privileged to be able to hear from journalists who are happy to own and be transparent about their allegiances and biases (there’s no such thing as “objective” journalism, “objective” is just “supporting the status quo”) and be in the streets and online with the people fighting for Black Lives and against police, police unions, and the Feds. This is great work from them, with a great diversity of voices. A really important and unique perspective from that you’ll hear in the news.

Trigger warning for mental health patients

The host is prejudiced against people with schizophrenia and similar disorders. I wouldn’t listen to this show, nor would I recommend listening if you have a psychotic illness & this is the kind of language that might trigger an episode for you.

The host has a habit of describing people who disagree with him in denigrating terms for mental illness.

I cannot in good conscience recommend this content.

Horrible Journalism

I find all these podcasts that support anarchism yet they fill their podcast with paid advertisements. If they really agreed they would not support capitalism. This podcast preaches unsupported information and breeds hate.
