“ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
we shall gather across the street from the Portland Police Department’s NE Precinct to express our anger and voice our solidarity with the citizens of Ferguson, Missouri and people across the country who have fallen victim to this brutal police state.
we want both Mayor Hales and Police Chief Reese to very publicly denounce these horrible actions…”

Sometimes folks are visited by the spirit of Dr. King, and remember that the boulevard carries his name because justice, truth, reconciliation are aspects of communal life that matter, and matter deeply; commerce and convenience are nothing compared to them. Folks participating in this event today are people I am proud to call my neighbors.
