Fifty days into the popular uprising sparked by the police murder of George Floyd and demonstrations in Portland, Oregon show little sign of abating. In fact, Portland has now become a proving ground for the Trump administration to demonstrate its ‘law and order’ bona fides in the run up to the 2020 election.
Black Rose caught up with a member of their Portland local to find out more about what’s been happening on the ground.

Mutual aid seems to be a key aspect of resistance and protest; mutual aid projects that were initially started at the beginning of the pandemic were strengthened and revitalized by the uprisings in the response to the murder of George Floyd. Black Rose Portland

A report on the situation in Greece, where the collapse of tourism has left the country on the verge of a major recession, while the government introduces a major crackdown on demonstrations. This report comes from Radio Fragmata's contribution to the "Bad News" international radio project, and was adapted and transcribed by Crimethinc.

In this tense context, the past month has seen conflicts escalate all around the country, with the government attempting to ban freedom of assembly, police beating countless demonstrators and determined anarchists giving battle to the forces of oppression on every front. Radio Fragmata

The life of Lucio Urtubia Jiménez (1931-2020), an anarchist from Navarre in northern Spain, is the stuff of legend.

We are bricklayers, painters, electricians – we do not need the state for anything. The banks are the real crooks. They exploit you, take your money and cause all the wars. Lucio Urtubia

An executive order by US President Donald Trump has shed light upon the extent of the United States’ collaboration with the Hong Kong government — including that the State Department has been training the Hong Kong Police Force and other Hong Kong security officers for years. This article was originally published by Lausan, and is available in Chinese here.

This should serve as an important reminder that state violence in the United States is directly connected with state violence in Hong Kong and elsewhere. If policing is a globally articulated system, then our struggle for police abolition, too, must be global. Wilfred Chan, Lausan

A joint statement by It's Going Down and Crimethinc, discussing the ongoing police and DHS actions in Portland, Oregon.

The brutality of the DHS and the Portland police illustrates why people rebelled in response to the murder of the George Floyd in the first place. There is no question of the government or the police being accountable to us. The only way we can gain leverage on them is by becoming ungovernable. It's Going Down/Crimethinc

We read about the amazing feats of the rich and powerful and are encouraged to accept them. Their existence is seen as natural and beneficial. A look at the story of the soon to be richest person in Aotearoa shows we don’t need to buy into this and shouldn’t.

The rich become that way because they work hard to provide the everyday things that our nation needs. It seems as natural and obvious as sun in summer or chocolate fish tasting like chocolate rather than fish. LAMA

In ancient times, known as BC (Before Corona) we at Aotearoa Workers Solidarity Movement (AWSM) put a call out for workers to share their personal stories about difficulties they have or are experiencing at work. We had positive feedback and began with the story of an educator in Southland .https://awsm.nz/?p=4390. Here is the second contribution to the series by Richard, a worker in Wellington

An interview from It's Going Down looking at the strategies being used by the state to repress the George Floyd uprising, and possibilities for resistance.

We’ve seen recently that all sorts of participants in the uprisings have quickly learned tactics for how to deal with chemical weapons. How do we disseminate anti-repression education just as widely? In all our work, anti-repression or otherwise, we must prioritize care.

After another night of revolt in the streets of The United States due to the killing of George Floyd, president Trump, from a bunker in the White House, announced that he would designate “Antifa” as a terrorist organization. This finger-pointing seeks to frame a spontaneous and manifold movement (without capitals) as an Organization, not only assigning it an ideology but also a functionality that is hierarchical and in consonance with state logic.

As people rise up against police violence and structural racism, what counterinsurgency techniques is the state deploying to attack and undermine the movement? This article by Peter Gelderloos was originally published by Roar Magazine.

...when someone is accused of being an infiltrator, a false protester, dialogue becomes impossible because, a priori, honest communication is precluded by who they supposedly are... in the name of nonviolence, people assaulted those who began to carry out property destruction. Peter Gelderloos
