It's 39 degrees and I'm coming to you live from the streets of Portland. Group is in Bloc and layered up. They're hidden, scattered in thick fog.

Graffiti references the death of Tete Gulley, a Black trans woman who was found hanged to death at Rocky Butte Park in May 2019. Family and friends believe she was murdered, and the police have refused to investigate.

Other protesters are reported to have gathered downtown, tagging the Consulate General of Mexico at SW 12th and Jefferson.
As today is Transgender Day of Remembrance, protesters move tonight from The South Park Blocks to the Consulate of Mexico in Portland, before spray painting the building. This is after years of reports & data of discrimination towards women & the LGBTQ community in Mexico. pic.twitter.com/e1Y50ao3S3— Independent Media PDX (@NDpendentPDX) November 21, 2020
