Police were brutal in their response. Independent videographers outnumbered corporate cameramen by a large margin, and 'Day X' is the best coverage of the day & night of resistance. Compiled by Portland Indymedia activists from footage from many different independent media cameras, 'Day X' is the people of Portland's story on how we responded directly after the US invaded Iraq.
Tonight, Portland Anti-Imperialists will be screening this documentary at the Red and Black Cafe, starting at 7pm. After the video, we will have a panel discussion with some of the videoistas from the day and people that organized resistance on that day.
The sixth anniversary of the Day of Bombing is fast approaching. While many people will be headed to Salem to protest, we chose to stand our ground and bring the war home.
This event is free of charge but donations will be accepted. Also, there is a safer space policy so please be respectful of others.
