"No one needs to point out the obvious white supremacy involved in the Portland Police Bureau's friendly and permissive relationship with alt-right street gangs.
What should be mentioned, however, is the connection to the attacks on our Trans friends and neighbors over the past few days.
The PPB's enabling of alt-right violence has led directly to these attacks. Police make our communities more dangerous. Their corruption and collusion with white supremacist patriarchy is a threat to us all.
We don't want them retrained. We want them gone.
Defund, Disarm and Disband the Portland Police."

@SallyStrange In my language, Chichewa, there's a word that means "scooping up/squeezing out/pouring out/slurping up/gathering up the remains of something" (as one would the last bit of toothpaste, or the last morsels of food). I can't, for the life of me, find an english equivalent that not only captures the act, but conveys the frustration that this action inspires. The word is: Kukombezela.
