Trump Gestapo in Portland must be met with mass protest in the streets! NO ICE training programs for vigilantes!
NO FASCIST POLICE STATE
NO FASCIST MILITARY WAR ON THE PEOPLE
Stop Police Violence Against Protesters!
In the name of humanity, we REFUSE to accept a fascist America!
TRUMP/PENCE OUT NOW!
Video footage from Portland, Oregon posted online late Thursday showed unidentified federal officers dressed in combat fatigues arresting Black Lives Matter protesters without explanation and throwing them into unmarked vehicles. Oregon Public Broadcasting reported Thursday that “federal law enforcement officers have been using unmarked vehicles to drive around downtown Portland and detain protesters since at least July 14.” This is the American Gestapo. This is fascism.
This goes hand and glove with ICE’s announced plans to operate a “citizens academy” in Chicago that is a training camp for vigilantes who will participate in “exercises … including, but not limited to defensive tactics, firearms familiarization, and targeted arrests.” This is another step toward a police state terrorizing our immigrant siblings and we say NO!
Join Refuse Fascism Chicago, Degenerate Artists Against Fascism, Freedom First International and others to demand that the secret police stop snatching people off the streets in Portland, Oregon.
As one civil rights attorney, said, “It’s like stop and frisk meets Guantanamo Bay.” This is a dry run for the Trump/Pence regime to consolidate a fascist America. This cannot be allowed. Everyone is needed to flood the streets to demand, “No Fascist Police State! #TrumpPenceOutNow!”
