International Day Against Police Brutality Portland

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

The police haven't stopped killing people so were not done fighting back! Lets gather at Peninsula Park and march to the North Portland Precinct to express our rage at living in the cage known as the state and our love for all those still behind bars fighting back! There will be mobile sound systems so street dancing will be had. This day of protest first began on March 15, 1997, at the initiative of the Black Flag collective in Switzerland and has since spread to become a global and annual day of action against the police. They chose this date because on this day, two youths, aged 11 and 12, were beaten by Swiss police. Citizens Against Police Brutality, from Montreal, Canada helped launch this international day of action. In 1997, over 50 groups from 14 countries participated in this event.
