Portland video: This is not a Protest, Not a Squat, it’s a Liberation

via Blazing Arrow. Aug 10:

On Sunday, August 5th, residents of NE Portland held a block party in the historically black Woodlawn neighborhood, to celebrate the ongoing defense of Alicia Jackson’s home from foreclosure, and to publicly reclaim the new duplex built on her land. This property is also on Ms. Jackson’s land and was taken during the foreclosure process. Community members plan to use the reclaimed duplex, which is currently the subject of a legal dispute, as a base of organizing against gentrification and police violence in the neighborhood.

This is not a protest, this is a land struggle! We’re taking back what was stolen from us.
