My question is whether or not it would be feasible for us to meet at S.E. Main, do a demo on the pedestrian overpass and then travel as a group on MAX to the downtown event. Exit strategy would be same in reverse.
It wouldn't have to be MAX. It could be any public transportation. I see there is a transit station of some sort at the base of the pedestrian bridge.
We'll scout it out tomorrow
I'm free for shenanigans this weekend, and Portland is a juicy target at the moment
Jimmy, I'm planning on heading down PDX way tomorrow.
I can take dat goy up to Portland tomorrow. (Without Dustin, dude needs to shower before I sit in the truck with him for that long).
I'm not sure he would be a good addition for possible conflict anyway
I'm going to head out for a hike. I'll leave it up to you guys to pin down a meet time and place.
OK, thanks for the feedback. I'm headed out for a walk right now. I'll ponder it and post my thoughts when I get back.
Any of you guys going to the rally tomorrow?
Idea is do a quick overpass demo then head over to rally. We need some of you northern goys to join us to hold 26' banner.
I have some significant safety concerns about that. Commies are already holding rallys today in preparation for tomorrow
If it happens, this will be a blitzkreig strike in an geographic area remote to the hot zone and touching on a political topic that is somewhat remote to the primary ideological thrust of the antifa mindset. The idea being to catch them off guard and unprepared. The real danger occurs largely when patriotard organizers announce their plans in advance and essentially invite antifa to launch an organized resistance and choreographed shit show in concert with the enemyedia. Even at the rally itself, critical danger for individuals will be after the event when they become separated and isolated while returning to their private vehicles. The staging of a remote pre-event can serve the dual purpose of providing a remote congregation point and boarding point for collective transportation into and out of the advertised hot zone.
Keep in touch, seapea.
Shall I give you a call?
I'm not 100% sold. Would much prefer to do it on a different day
Beornmod: Well, we'll probably be doing it on a different day as well, so it's not like this is your only chance. I just got off the phone with seapea and my sense is that there is enough support for the overpass demo that we will be doing it whether or not you decide to join us, so you should feel comfortable in following your personal judgement. I would however, appreciate it if you could extend invitations to other PDX Stormers on my behalf. In addition to this operations chat, I'll be attempting to coordinate this event from my prepaid cell phone 485-205-0585. Please relay my phone number to interested parties.
Okay, sounds good. Will do
Okay, I passed on the word
Beornmod: Also, if/when you have the leisure please advise me as to what you see as the most vulnerable choke points in my proposed operation.
I think I'm going to go with my gut on this one tomorrow though. I'm going to be downtown though, so contact me in case of emergency
I'll have a bit more time to look into that when I get off work at 5
Yeah, or just give me your gut. Imagine shit going wrong. What does it look like. This is not my attempt to evaluate your logic. I just want the benefit of an alternative perspective.
Sounds good. I'll do some investigating on Google maps at work today and will give you my evaluation tonight
Gibbs Street Pedestrian bridge?
Hell no. No wonder you have reservations. The S.E. Main pedestrian bridge crosses 1-205 at Mall 205. It's way out east.
Ty sir. Work got busier than I expected, so I was still trying to find it on Google Maps
I worked that overpass a few years back and found it to be the best of the six I've used in the greater Portland metro area.
Tomorrow dose not work for me as I have to work tonight and already decided on an action plan. Any other day with a little bit more notice.
What day of the week and time of year did you demonstrate there, Jimmy? It's going to be a fairly nice Sunday, I expect lots of traffic on that bridge
That bridge is probably one of the best locations we could use in Portland. The mall provides all the parking we need. I'm less concerned about that specific location, I'm more concerned about the timing of it.
Maybe another time would be better. I got going on the idea because I thought it might be easy to get lots of hands on deck by combining the two events. It looks like that's not going to be the way it. I'll wait and see what some others have to say on this topic.
Sorry, not trying to piss in your wheaties or anything
I'm probably more concerned about the public transportation aspects of the plan than anything else. No, my wheaties are good.
As far as pedestrian traffic on the bridge goes, I'm not too worried because they won't be able to read the banner(s) anyway. If they ask, I'll just tell 'em it says "Jesus Saves".
Haha well I'm going to text you from my phone so you have my number if you end up needing some backup
