Federal Pigs Raid “Occupy ICE” Encampment in Portland, Oregon

June 29, 2018 | Revolution Newspaper | revcom.us


For 11 days, since June 17, the operations of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement—ICE—had basically been shut down by an “Occupy ICE” round-the-clock encampment and protest. Then on Thursday, June 28, heavily armed riot police from the Department of Homeland Security raided the encampment, tore down signs and banners, and arrested at least eight people.

The Portland encampment has inspired Occupy ICE protests across the country, including in San Diego, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Detroit, Washington, DC, Louisville, Tacoma, Washington, and New York City. These are righteous and must be supported!
