Black Riders Liberation Party leads armed defense for Portland counter-protest against Proud Boys

Listen to this article

Black Lives Matter and Antifascist activists held a counter-demonstration Saturday afternoon in Portland against a Proud Boys demonstration being held in a nearby park. The two groups largely remained separate from each other. Members of the Black Riders Liberation Party, a group that continues to promote the views of the Black Panthers, acted as armed security for the event. “We’re not out here to cause any kind of destruction. We’re not out here to intimidate nobody, to antagonize nobody,” said BRLP regional minister of defense Ogun Ture. “Today we are actually out here to show that we are a liberated front.” Letha Winston, Patrick Kimmons’ mother spoke out. Kimmons was killed by police in 2018. “Don’t let nobody discourage you from getting justice,” she said. “Don’t let nobody discourage you from saying ‘F*** the police.'”
