Portland Day 1

August 27th, 2010 · post by Fred Goodsell · 1 Comment

We arrived jet-lagged and bleary eyed in Portland late last night. Tonight we’re talking at Reading Frenzy, a bookshop/gallery/event space devoted to supporting independent and alternative culture.

We spent the day visiting some of the city’s radical spaces including the Black Rose infoshop and Red and Black cafe. The Red and Black cafe recently came under attack from national media after asking a cop to leave under their safer space policy. The incident happened soon after the death of a local homeless man at hands of a Portland police officer. Local anarchists responded to the killing  accordingly.
