Demonstrators in Philadelphia turned out in the thousands within hours to protest in honor of Breonna Taylor.
About 150 protesters gathered in front of the ICE facility in Portland to demand the abolition of the agency created in 2002, whose dismantling would legally be within Biden’s direct jurisdiction. DHS & Portland Police attacked the demonstration, using incredibly toxic amounts of the possibly carcinogenic HC tear gas, and making targeted arrests of medics and press.
Dozens of protesters returned to the streets of Elizabeth City for a 9th day, demanding justice for Andrew Brown, a black man killed by police officers with assault rifles. Despite police arriving in the dozens with riot gear, protesters did not respond and dispersed without caving to the aggression presented by law enforcement.
