So a lot happened Sunday, this is being written Tuesday, and Twitter is aflame with the discourse. So let’s have an actual report back with what happened from people who were both downtown and in Northeast Portland that day. Warning: This report back has opinions. Continue reading “August 22nd Reportback”
Reportback and analysis from the militant black bloc in Portland on August 22, 2021.
This is a reportback from some of the antifascist crews who mobilized from a rally in downtown Portland to confront proud boys and other white nationalists where they had gathered near Parkrose High School. We don’t speak for everyone who chose to go confront the fascists where they were that day, just ourselves. We are several crews with about two dozen people between us, and this reportback is the product of our discussions about how that day went.
We absolutely do not regret going to oppose fascist violence at Parkrose, but there are many ways we could have been more effective. Continue reading “We Went Where They Went — 8/22/21 Reportback”
In response to the Portland Police murder of Michael Ray Townsend on June 24, a parking lot containing multiple Portland Police Bureau squad cars was attacked. A hole was cut into the surrounding barbed wire fence, and a dozen vehicles were hit. All cars had their windows, windshields, lights and mirrors smashed, and abolitionists / anarchists messages were painted across their exteriors. A fire extinguisher filled with paint was used to completely cover multiple squad cars, as well as their interiors.
Everyday the pigs turn our public spaces into open air prisons. We call on all abolitionists to take the defunding and disarming of the pigs into their own hands.
Be bold! Sabotage is fun!

Here is a short flyer we made for Rose City Counter Info
Over the years Rose City Antifa has released zines covering a range of topics. Listed blow are PDF versions of five zines they have made. Three of them are from a series called “Antifascist Toolkit”, this series covers history, basics and best practices in regards to anti-fascism. The remaining two are from a series called “Know Your Assholes”, which covers individuals and groups who engage in fascist activity.
“This zine is a collection of one year’s worth of anarchic, anticapitalist and abolitionist attacks in so-called Portland, Oregon.
We focus only on attacks and actions that took place
anonymously and secretly, outside of any protest, march or
demonstration. Everything within comes from communiques,
news articles and press releases found online.
“A little while ago, we came across Troublemakers Guide to Rose City, a zine full of ways to sabotage the system that kills and breaks us. With no digital version available, and the information within
somewhat lacking, we took it upon ourselves to make
Troublemakers Guide to Rose City #2, Sabotaging Everyday Life.
Radical resources about sexual assault, accountability, trauma, consent, intoxication culture and assault, relationships, and kink
Zines are listed by general topic, largely in that order, after books and pamphlets.
Obviously, these topics all overlap, so zines were sorted according to what seemed the most helpful way to categorize them; every resource speaks in some way to issues of consent and sexual assault. Continue reading “Anarchist Resources on Accountability and Consent”
