J25 Uprising

J25 was a day of solidarity with Portland protesters. An extended documentary of the Pacific Northwest uprising is linked. Several hubs for mass protests were in Seattle, Marin, Olympia, Austin, and Portland. Notable events also happened in Louisville, but not tied to J25.

Austin

In Austin, a protester was shot and 3 others wounded by gunfire coming from a drive-by car.

Oakland

In Oakland, the courthouse was set on fire by the local Youth Liberation Front chapter and other anarchists.

Seattle

The Seattle Youth Liberation Front burned down a construction site of a new juvenile detention center in the area.

Olympia

So many tear gas canisters were thrown in Olympia that it seeped into buildings and gave people asthma attacks.

Marin

In Marin County, California, some members of the YLF threw down a banner drop on a landlord’s building that they have kept abandoned for years.

Portland

Portland, being the center of J25, had many clashes with police and federal agents during the day; Portland is now facing air pollution as a result of the amount of tear gas being deployed on the streets.
