Portland, OR / October 26, 2020 / 0830 / PNW Community Action Network (ANTIFA) plans “Week of Action” starting November 4th
SIGACTS/SITREP: PNW CAN has scheduled a “Week of Action” and encourages their members to “take action in workplaces, neighborhoods and mutual aid groups to oppose authoritarianism and racially motivated violence in the wake of the upcoming election.” This is scheduled to take place at North Park Blocks in Portland starting at 12PM followed by a march at 5PM.
RECOMMENDATION: Avoid North Portland near North Park Blocks and the surrounding areas starting Wednesday November 4th through November 11th. This demonstration will begin at North Park Blocks but will be mobile starting at 5PM. Among their stated goals are to “disrupt business” and “We protect us – we defend ourselves”. It goes without saying that tensions will be high after the election regardless of the outcome and practicing situational awareness will be paramount while residing in or travelling through the greater Portland area during this period.
