No scheduled protests today, on this Thanksgiving holiday that is also a day of mourning for indigenous communities.
There’s a new podcast by Robert Evans called “Uprising”, about the protests here. We strongly recommend it for coverage of not just what’s happened out on our streets, but the history behind it and why the protests continue. Many media accounts leave out the voices of Black organizers, or the history of the Portland police, or the many kinds of community activism happening throughout – this podcast will give you the full picture. The first episode is out now.
