Seattle & Portland Activists: Protest Federal and City Police Crackdowns & Keep Focus on BLM Agenda

As nationwide protests against systemic racism and police violence stretch into their second month, President Trump has sent a team of federal agents to Seattle, following a controversial deployment of federal forces in Portland, Oregon. “We don’t know exactly what the federal officers are doing. What we do know is we are in a situation where local police are welcoming those federal agents into our cities,” says Seattle community organizer Nikkita Oliver, co-executive director of Creative Justice. DN! also speaks with Pastor E.D. Mondainé, president of the Portland, Oregon, branch of the NAACP.
