For those who were there: I salute you - I hope I captured the moment in these audio files. For those who weren't: Chill and listen. It was cool.
Welcome to the "Unwelcome Bush" protests held in Portland, OR this weekend!
Here's a limited audio set of what happened this Saturday. The audio is a little rough but its very listenable. Thanks to all the wonderful people I met and talked with - this was great. Its getting bigger and better all the time. I fudged the recording of Infernal Noise Brigade on MLK Blvd. but I got them at Parkrose. There's a bit of distortion from the wind but it doesn't last.
From the first protest site at YO:
* Starts off with a lot of chanting. who's streets - our streets... who's police etc. Chanting on MLK. 7:00 linking arms.interview w/ a kid at 9:35. Cops moving people at 10:33. "Let us Through" 13:00 passing a message from the cops. 15:55 - talk w/ someone from eugene, or.
